Getting to camp is the beginning of the adventure – enjoy the journey! There are a few ways to get to camp:

Three Travel Options

Dropping off at camp affords you the opportunity to see camp, meet a Director, and meet one of your camper’s cabin staff at check-in. Follow the signs to the designated drop-off location where a Director will greet you. Each family/carpool pod will be assigned an hour window for drop-off. Please be prompt and keep to your allotted window as it assists with lines and wait times at Check-In. We ask that you keep the visit to 1 hour max to ensure your camper can transition to camp time. We schedule drop-off between 9am-12pm with a later window after lunch from 1-2pm. Please specify if you have a preferred time on your Transportation form. We will send out confirmation of your time and more detailed drop-off instructions 2 weeks before your camper’s arrival day.
Important details for Drop-Off at Camp:
  • Lunch is only available for our campers and staff.
    • We will have refreshments available at check-in, but we recommend planning to grab a bite before or after drop-off.

Travel FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

In order to provide the best camp travel experience, receiving travel information by May 1st allows us to schedule travel and coordinate each travel day early. Naturally, there will be missed flights, cancelled flights, family emergencies, etc. that adjust travel slightly. However, we do our best to ensure last minute changes by one do not significantly impact the flow of travel for the majority. In past seasons we have noticed a tendency for families to delay making travel plans to and from camp, sometimes until the few days prior to their session. We understand that life is busy and it can be hard to plan. However, in order for us to ensure that we provide the best travel experience for all campers coming and going, we have had to tighten the standards on our travel policies. Further, in order to be sure your camper is secured a seat on our airport transportation, you must complete your travel information by the deadline. Information submitted past the deadline is not guaranteed a seat on airport transportation.
We will not penalize you for changes outside of your control (illness, injury, family emergency, act of nature, etc) and will adjust accordingly to ensure your camper has a smooth travel day once in our care.
We will do our best to accommodate the new travel arrangements; however, travel changes that are not due to an emergency or other extenuating circumstance and communicated AFTER the May 1st deadline may be subject to a $75 travel fee for speciality travel on our end.
Opening day at camp is an exciting time when connections start and campers are able to familiarize themselves with the camp environment. Arriving at camp before 3pm is vital to ensure your camper has the most successful start to their camp experience. Closing day is a travel day and we do not have program on this day, scheduling departure travel before 1pm ensures your camper has a smooth end to their camp experience. Please call us to verify any travel plans that deviate from our recommendations. If your alternate arrangements require an airport pick-up outside of our recommended window or on a non-travel day, you will be charged a $75 fee. If you do not communicate your alternate travel plans prior to May 1, 2023, we cannot guarantee transportation.
