Traveling to Camp FAQs

Details and options for camper travel to and from camp can be found by logging into your CampInTouch account and accessing your program-specific Caregiver Handbook.

For all Methods of Travel

How and when do I advise Experience Camps about my camper’s travel plans?

All travel must be updated in your camper’s CampInTouch account by June 1.  Once you’ve confirmed your travel plans, login to your account, from the dashboard click “Forms and Documents” and complete the transportation form. Email if you need help with your travel options or forms.

Do you offer travel stipends?

Transportation scholarships will be available to campers on a first come, first served basis. Caregivers must submit an application, which will be reviewed by the ExCamps HeadQuarters office. For financial assistance with travel, please complete this application.

Buses to Camp

When and where do I drop off my camper at a bus stop?

Bus stop options can be found in your program-specific Caregiver Handbook  in your CampInTouch account.  Please note that bus times are exact. We are not able to hold the bus if you are late, as other campers and families are waiting at the next location. All campers must arrive to camp by bus. Additional bus stops have been added closer to camp for families who live locally.

What does my camper bring on the bus?

There is limited space available for luggage storage so please pack only what you need – aiming for one bag. Please avoid hard suitcases and use compressible bags where possible. Pack a nut-free snack or lunch and resealable drink for the bus.

Flying to Camp

How do I coordinate my camper flying to camp?

Air travel to camp is coordinated by each caregiver.  Please read the travel information in your program-specific Caregiver Handbook carefully to ensure that you are choosing flights that arrive and depart on the correct days and at the correct times. We are unable to make special arrangements for campers who arrive or depart outside of the stated times. Once you’ve coordinated your travel, enter in the flight details into your CampInTouch account by June 1.

If my camper is flying to and from camp, what time should they arrive and depart?
Please see your program-specific Caregiver Handbook for details on when your camper should arrive at the airport and when they will depart heading home.
How do I find out if my camper should register as an unaccompanied minor?

Please contact the airline directly to discuss their unaccompanied minor policy and cost.  Every airline has a different requirement and cost. 

Who do I list as the drop off and pick up contact person?

Please list “Gayle Brumley” as the temporary chaperone pick-up contact with the airline and give the address of the camp location your child is attending.  Approximately one week prior to camp you will be given the name of the volunteer who will be the pick-up chaperone at the airport.  You will need to call the airline at that time to change the name and contact information. 

Who covers the cost for the flight and unaccompanied minor fees and baggage?

Whenever possible, the cost of the flight, unaccompanied minor fee, and baggage cost is paid by the camper’s caregiver.  Please make sure you have pre-paid for baggage as needed. If you are concerned about your ability to afford the transportation cost, we encourage you to check locally with organizations, religious groups, or family for support.  If needed, we do offer limited funds in our transportation scholarship.  Apply here

What happens once my camper lands at the airport?

Chaperones will be present at the airport one hour prior to the scheduled bus departure time to receive the campers and escort them on the bus to camp. If a camper is traveling on their own and their flight arrives before this time, it is the responsibility of the camper to meet us at our designated meeting spot at the correct time. Families are alerted via text once the buses arrive at camp.

What about bringing snacks and cell phones?

Please pack a nut-free snack with your camper for their flight.  If they have a cell phone, please make sure they also have the power cord.  Once they arrive at camp, all cell phones will be stored, charged and returned before campers depart for their flights home. 

I’m interested in sending my camper on the group flight from Fort Lauderdale to Georgia. Can you share more information?

ExCamps secures ~40-50 seats on one flight from FLL to ATL (including campers and several chaperones). These seats are first come first serve.  The caregiver will pay for the individual ticket(s) and baggage. ExCamps holds these seats to try to get as many campers from the area to travel together. Click here to book your ticket(s). Tickets must be purchased by June 1.
