Actually, I would think that he goes to the hotel on Sunday and to MEPS on Monday since MEPS is open on weekdays and not the weekend and then to the RTC on Monday after being sworn in at MEPS.
You may wish to join the group, DEP-Leavin for bootcamp in May. You will meet others with loved ones leaving that day/week who may be in the same TG and have PIR together. Be sure to check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month Before Your Future Sailor Leaves for.... I also suggest you join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and New Members Stop Here and check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) and Discussions there.

I just graduated bootcamp 4 months ago and am currently in A school right now.Feel free to message me any questions you may have.
I'm not Julio (and he is off-line right now), but the new Sailors generally have to be back at the RTC somewhere between 7 and 9 pm--8 is the average. He will know the time and you need to drop him off about 30 minutes before that to make sure he has time to make it to his ship before his Liberty expires--On time is late in the Navy. If he has watch at some point that day, you will need to make sure he is back for that and then pick him up afterwards if there is still Liberty remaining. See PIR Day and Liberty During PIR Weekend within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will give you more info on how to plan your weekend. I invite you to join that group while you are there.
Ke'neisha, your SR most likely would have been able to write for the first time this past Sunday when he had holiday routine for the first time. He would also have been able to write on Monday since it was a federal holiday. Mail went out on Tuesday this week rather than Monday becuase of the holiday, so expect a "real" letter later this week. If he did not have to wait for others to fill the division, his first Mail Call probably would have been either last Friday or yesterday. Mail Call is every weekday (M-F) evening except for holidays once a Recruti Mail Petty Officer is trained. Letter Writing & Fun Stuff/Questionnaires to send to your Recruit within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will tell you more about that. I invite you to join that group while you are there and to check out the other Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) as well. By now you know his PIR date and it should either be 07/03/2013 or 07/12/2013, so join either PIR 07/03/2013 TG 34 - 11 Divisions (247-256, and 934) or PIR 07/12/2013 TG 35 – 9 Divisions (257-264, and 935) to connect with others with loved ones training with your SR.

You are very welcome.
7 am to 1 pm on Sundays is holiday routine, not Liberty.
