    If there is severe weather in the area (rain and/or lightning), parents will need to park their cars and come inside to pick up campers. Red flags will be posted outside the front gazebo and at the walkers pick up entrance to indicate that we are having a rainy day dismissal in which parents will need to park their cars and come inside to pick up campers. Camp personnel will be stationed in the front entrance gazebo to direct parents as needed.  Camp Sagemont also uses the REMIND system to notify parents of a rainy day dismissal.
