Important Note for 2021: We are requesting that all families ship the bags to camp ahead of time. If we determine that car arrivals are the safest way to start camp, arriving at camp will include a medical screen and COVID-19 testing before campers can enter. We will not be able to facilitate moving luggage while we are working through the screen process with all of our campers.
Baggage Delivery to Camp
From all locations in the continental U.S., baggage can be picked up directly at the camper’s home and transported to camp. You will need to arrange for this service directly through our baggage company: Camp Trucking, Inc. (www.camptrucking.com: 970-949-0690.) If you do not hear from Camp Trucking by May 15th and you wish to use their services to transport your daughter’s baggage to camp, please contact them directly. Camp Trucking will be communicating with you directly regarding all tags, other necessary information and baggage pick-up dates. Should any baggage problems or questions arise, you should contact Camp Trucking directly.
For parents in locations that Camp Trucking does not service (i.e., outside of the continental United States), we recommend using UPS or FedEx. You will need to arrange for both baggage drop off and pick up with UPS or FedEx directly. We are equipped to receive baggage beginning Monday, June 7th. All baggage should be in camp by Tuesday, June 22nd. Please make arrangements for UPS baggage to be picked up at camp on Friday, August 13th.
We will have a truck at Albany airport on opening day to transport baggage arriving with campers by plane.
Trunks and duffle bags should have the camper’s name written or embroidered in large letters for easy identification. If you are using your own lock on any baggage, please send an extra set of keys or a copy of the lock combination to our office before Camp. Please label all keys with your daughter’s name and group. All keys will be returned to you at the end of Camp. The baggage of Ti through Jr. B campers will be unpacked for them prior to their arrival.
NOTE: Please do not have campers carry large pieces of luggage on the buses either to or from Camp. Everything should be packed in the trunk or duffle except for some games, books, or a special stuffed animal that your daughter may want to have on the bus.
Transportation To/From Camp
Our goal is to minimize as much risk as possible at the start of the summer, and if camp were to open today we would not feel comfortable putting groups of campers who will not be in the same initial cohort at camp together for a long bus ride. We are constantly evaluating the different factors involved with travel to and from camp and will keep you updated on our plans. If you have questions about your specific travel arrangements to camp, please reach out to us
