Notes For All Air Travelers:
  • There is a $150 roundtrip/$75 one-way charge for transportation to/from Boston (Logan), Manchester, NH, and Portland, ME Airports on the following designated travel days: June 22, July 21, and August 9.
  • On non-designated travel days, there is a $250 roundtrip/$125 one-way charge for transportation to/from the airports specified above.
  • Once we have confirmation of campers on all flights, we will determine whether or not a Robin Hood escort will be assigned. Regardless, it is always our recommendation to book your child as an unescorted minor. For a nominal fee, the airline will allow you to walk your child to the gate and allow us to pick your child up at the gate (and vice versa on the return). Plus, if there are unexpected layovers, the airline is responsible for the safety and wellbeing of your child. This is especially important if there is a change of planes.
  • Please let us know about your travel plans by completing the online Transportation Form.

Campers' Baggage

All campers traveling to/from camp via airplane or bus (other than campers traveling from/to abroad) need to ship duffels to/from camp. This should be done through Camp Trucking. Camp Trucking services the entire country plus Canada. Their prices are less than any other carrier, including UPS and Federal Express. Additionally, by shipping through Camp Trucking, there will be no issues with bags being lost or misplaced in transit to/from camp. Camp Trucking will ship bags home at the conclusion of the First Session and Full session.

  • You must write in big dark letters the name and group on all bags.
  • Soft duffels are recommended vs. hard trunks or boxes.
  • Parents driving their children may bring their duffels with them.
  • See additional travel information.
