Permit Weekend FAQ
How do I sign my child out?
If a camper is going on permit, he/she must sign out at the correct designated location below based on his/her unit:
Logansport Gate: Deck 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7
Eppley Auditorium Drive (backside loop): Deck 5 and 6
Main Guard/Sally Port: All Naval, Horsemanship, and Aviation Units
Woodcraft Library: All Woodcraft Girls (Butterflies and Cardinals)

Can my child go on permit with another family?
With proper authorization, your child may leave campus with another family or you have the option of taking your child’s friend on permit.
Authorized adults must be added as "Trusted Contacts" in the Campdocs system prior to permit day. The “Trusted Contacts” link is on the parent’s dashboard in Campdocs, which you can access by logging into your account on the Summer Parent Portal here. Any person dropping off a camper or picking up a camper, at the start, during, or end of camp, must be added as a “Trusted Contact” in order for them to go on permit with that person.
If you know your child will be going on permit with another family, please take a moment to update your account. Families will not be able to add authorized adults during permit weekend checkout.
What do I do with my camper on permit?
While off-campus with your child, you may consider some of the options below:
- Dine at one of the restaurants in the town of Culver
- Visit Plymouth - about 15 miles north of Culver - for movies, bowling, restaurants, Wal-Mart, and other stores.
- Visit South Bend/Mishawaka - about 40 miles north of Culver - for a larger selection of stores and restaurants.
What can I do when I am not on permit with my camper?
We welcome all parents to view the Garrison Parade on Saturday evening at 7:00 PM on the James A. Henderson Parade Field.
What if my child is not going out on permit?
Not every child goes out on permit. For those who stay on campus, there will be activities to keep campers busy during weekends at Culver. There will be scheduled times for recreational sailing for Upper School and recreational skating and swimming for all campers along with other activities.
Many of the facilities will be open for campers to use during permit times.
