Important Things to Remember on Permit

  • Students will be expected to follow all COVID-19 protocols while off-campus.
  • Please note that Upper School students will not be able to take Woodcraft campers out on permit.

  • While students are on permit the following may only be done under the immediate supervision of parent/guardian: swim, sail, participate in any boating or water activity, drive (if they have a license) a car or golf cart.  

  • Students must wear proper Dress A uniform while on off-campus permit and observe all CSSC rules and regulations.

  • Students must be supervised by the authorized adult who signed them out the entire time while on permit and must be returned to their units no later than the end of permit time. 
How do I sign my child out?

If a student 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

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.
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. If driving in a vehicle, there must be a seatbelt for every person that is in the car.
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 students actively engaged during weekends at Culver. There are scheduled times for recreational sailing and ice skating along with other activities.

Our campus remains closed to the public, however many of the facilities will be open for students to use during permit times.
