At Mountain Meadow we utilize the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) in Reno, Nevada and we have camp directors at the airport on all travel days to personally oversee the safe arrivals and departures of all our campers. Our staff accompany campers to and from their gates of arrival and departure. Airline personnel have worked with us for many years to ensure a smooth and safe journey for all the kids. We provide free transportation to and from the airport on travel days – a short hour and a half drive from camp.
Flights should arrive between 12pm and 2pm on Opening Day
Flights should depart between 12pm and 2pm on Closing Day
For our camp family’s security and peace of mind, campers residing in the Southern California (LAX) and San Francisco Bay Areas (OAK) may select our escorted flights where our camp staff meet campers at check-in and escort them through security, onto their flights, fly with them to Reno and escort them to Mountain Meadow. From Reno, it’s a short bus ride (about an hour and a half) to camp. We also provide escorts on specific return flights to Southern California and the Bay Area. Simply tell us upon enrollment that you would like to be included on our flight list, provide us with a method of payment, and we’ll make all the arrangements. We will contact you once your child’s flight has been booked and you will receive a copy of your child’s e-ticket confirmation. Our designated carrier is Southwest Airlines. It is a fun, smooth and safe process and a great way to start an amazing camp adventure. Our escorted flights for Summer 2017 will be posted here in February.
*There is no extra charges for choosing an escorted flight and parents are still responsible for covering the cost of the airfare.*
Driving your camper to camp is a great option! You will get to see their cabin and meet their counselor, who will be waiting to help get your camper settled in. You may also join your camper for a tour of the camp and a bite to eat. There are no organized camp tours or meals on Closing Day.
