Parking During SummerQuest

It’s that time of year again for summer camps, and with SummerQuest running from June 6 through July 15, please be aware that pick up and drop off will take place in front of Stuber Gym. This will likely block the front of the building with carpool vehicles from 2:45 - 3:30 pm on weekdays. If you’re planning on leaving The Center during that time, please consider using the parking lot on the pool side of the building to avoid the extra traffic.
