April Vacation – Tanglewood – FAQ

Tanglewood’s April Vacation Schedule:

The program runs from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, Tuesday, April 16 – Friday, April 19, 2024.

Staff will meet participants in the upper parking lot (just before the last hill down into camp – it will be marked) each morning and you will pick your child up there in the afternoon as well. Note: if Tanglewood Road is too muddy and we need to reduce traffic, we will notify you. Drop off and pick up would then take place at 1 Tanglewood Road, our Headquarters and we will shuttle the children down to camp.

All participants will spend most of the day outside and it may still be chilly so please make sure they are dressed appropriately (and in layers.)

Should we need to cancel the program or change the details for a day, there will be a message on the office voicemail (207.789.5868) by 7:00 AM.
