TRAVEL TO CAMP BY PLANE

If your child is traveling to Camp by plan please be in direct contact with the Camp Office no later than May 1st to confirm your child’s travel plans (in addition to completing our Travel Form).  Please make sure that you consult with Jason in the Camp Office before booking any flights.  This summer we have children traveling to Camp from many different states and countries, and it is crucial that we know the complete travel itinerary of each child.

If your child is traveling by plane please remember that luggage should not be checked, but should be shipped by separate carrier, as discussed in last week’s Camp 101 email.

TRAVEL TO CAMP BY CAR

A Special Note….

We strongly recommend that new campers come up on the bus rather than by car.  The Camp experience really begins on the bus ride up – new friendships are often formed by the end of that bus ride.  Goodbyes are also easier at the bus.  

If you are considering bringing your child to camp by car, it is very important that you get in touch with the Camp Office to let us know as soon as possible (in addition to completing our Travel Form)

Please plan to arrive between 3 – 3:30pm and to make your departure as speedy as possible.

TRAVEL HOME FROM CAMP

Camp Closes Saturday, August 15th.  Please let us know via the Transportation Form how your child will be retuning home from Camp at the end of the summer. If this changes, please contact us as soon as possible.  Please do not rely upon email alone, as it is not 100% reliable. In addition, we cannot rely upon second hand reports of travel changes from your children during the summer, nor can we remember travel arrangements from last year without being reminded (we’re good, but not that good!). We thank you for your assistance in our travel planning. 

TRAVEL HOME BY BUS

TO BOSTON

When: Saturday, August 15th 

Where: Riverside MBTA Parking Lot (far end).  The station is located just off Exit 22 of Route 95.

TRAVEL HOME BY PLANE

Again, if your child is traveling home from Camp by plane please be in direct contact with the Camp Office no later than May 1st to confirm your child’s travel plans (in addition to completing our Travel Form).  Please make sure that you consult with Jason in the Camp Office before booking any flights.  This summer we have children traveling to and from Camp from many different states and countries, and it is crucial that we know the complete travel itinerary of each child.

If your child is traveling by plane please remember that luggage should not be checked, but should be shipped by separate carrier, as discussed in last week’s Camp 101 email.

 

TRAVEL HOME BY CAR

Children driven home by car should be picked up between 8:00 and 8:30 AM.  Our buses leave by 8:00AM, and Camp becomes a very empty place very rapidly.  If you are planning to pick up your child please let us know ahead of time how their luggage will be traveling from Camp.  

If you have any questions about any of this please don’t hesitate to get in touch!  Call 781-793-0091 or email kelly@kenwood-evergreen.com.
