A few weeks ago, I had to pick up my child from summer camp and got introduced to the new concept of “Valet Pickup”. Now I’m sure you are asking yourself, what the heck is “valet pickup”?
As a trial in my town of Middletown NJ: You are given a 8 1/2 by 11 Pink sheet of paper with your child’s name. When you go to pick up your child, you hand this to the “attendent” or volunteer and he/she goes and brings your child from the day camp to your car.. I gotta tell you this concept totally blew me away. Instead of parking and going inside to gymnasium to get my child, my child (correct one) was delivered to my car!
This pick up service is indeed the next fad that I think will sweep the nation once it’s publicized..
- For parents that are tight on time, this makes the child pickup from day camp a speedy and efficient process!
- Creates additional jobs for teenagers who act as valets
Kudos to the Middletown parks and recreation for beta testing this concept this summer and hope they keep it for the long term.
