Camp Shai Transportation

** Camp Starts June 6! **

Expect heavier traffic in the area

Camp Shai and MACC Academies start June 6. Please give yourself plenty of time when coming to the J, as heavier traffic around the area and within our parking lot is to be expected during morning drop-off (8:45 am – 9:15 am) and afternoon pick-up (3:45 pm – 4:15 pm).

Thank you for your cooperation and taking it slowly while in our parking lot.
