For Parents who choose to pick their sons up from Boys’ State:
There will be a ceremony here at SUNY Morrisville that all boys will participate in starting at around 2:30 pm. If a parents wishes to attend, they should try and be there by 2 pm as it is a memorable experience.

After this final assembly, parents driving their sons home must sign out their child and follow instructions that will be given. If desired, parents can stay for a final barbecue where food will be provided for the Boys and parents can eat for a minor fee.
