Getting to Camp

As we plan for the summer, we would like to share information about the options available to you as you make travel arrangements to and from camp for your child. Please read this section and review the information entirely and carefully.

By AIr

Please review the link provided here to read more information about flying to/from camp. The link to approved nonstop flights is embedded at the end. Please note that the airlines may have changed flight numbers and times. Campers coming from the West Coast have the option to arrive on Monday afternoon (after 2pm) to Charlotte Airport.


Please adhere to our arrival and departure windows below:


Airport                                     Arrive (Tuesday)                     Depart (Sunday)

Asheville AVL                            8:00am – 2:00pm                     8:00am – 1:00pm

Charlotte-Douglas CLT             9:00am – 1:00pm                    11:00am – 2:00pm


All campers will be assisted through the airport by our staff members, led by our airport captains. Please indicate on the travel form if your camper will be flying as an Unaccompanied Minor. 


We understand that air travel can be stressful for you as a parent. If you have any questions or concerns, our summer office manager Zoe is here to assist you. Please email to get in touch with her.

By Car

If you are driving to camp, please do not arrive before your assigned time so we can reduce any congestion. In an upcoming email, later this spring, we will share specific arrival day times, policies, and procedures. All drop-off procedures will conclude by 11:30 AM so we can have lunch and begin our official first day of camp!


As a reminder, for Summer 2024, parents will remain in the car for the entirety of the drop-off process (except for a hug and kiss goodbye).


On your child’s last day of camp, pick-up is between 9:00 and 11:00 am.

Shipped Luggage

Luggage can travel with your camper, but you are welcome to ship it to and from camp! This will help to alleviate congestion on Opening and Closing Day and ensure that your child’s luggage is waiting in their room when they arrive at camp. If you are driving to camp and arriving in Asheville the day before camp opens, we ask that you drop your child’s luggage off at the front gate on that Monday between 4-6pm. 

Families whose campers are traveling by car will be able to drop off their bags with our staff when they arrive and pick them up for departure. Campers arriving by bus or by air will be able to put their bags on the bus. All luggage will be loaded and unloaded with assistance from our staff. Please assist us by assuring that your camper knows what their bags look like and that their name is legible on their luggage or luggage tag.

We are so thrilled to be partnering with ShipCamps this summer. With premier customer service and complimentary insurance coverage, we are taking the experience of shipping luggage to/from camp to the next level. You can access ShipCamps through your CampInTouch (CIT) account or by clicking here.
