For the trip to camp, we strongly recommend sending your child to camp on the charter buses we provide from the Chicago-land area. The cost is $100 each way and will be added to your final statement. You must make your bus reservation by May 1.
On the return home, we recommend exactly the opposite if possible! Please join us for our final banquet festivities. You’ll meet your child’s counselor and friends, check out all his favorite activities and catch some of that awesome camp spirit. Parents may book one of our Lodge Cabins during this time.
Drop off is on Sunday between 1-3 p.m.
Once you enter Camp, you may park in the parking lot at the top of the hill. Our staff will meet you at the entrance and direct you from there. The drop-off is coordinated to get your son acclimated to camp as soon as possible – which means you should plan for a short, cheerful goodbye.
If you’re debating on whether to come at the beginning or the end of camp, we strongly recommend coming at the end for the family picnic and banquet.
Our boys travel from all over the country and the world to get to camp. Boys will often fly into Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to be picked up by assigned counselors and taken to our buses at the designated drop-off point. We try to make getting your son to camp as easy as possible. If you have any questions about travel, please contact us.
Your son’s flight must arrive at O’Hare no later than 9 a.m. in order for us to pick him up and transport him to the charter busses. If your camper is flying domestically, please ship his trunk via UPS two weeks ahead of the first day of camp.
International flights can be tricky to coordinate, but we have systems in place to facilitate logistics. Your son’s flight must arrive at O’Hare no later than 9 a.m. in order for us to pick him up and transport him to the charter busses. If that is impossible, please contact us to make alternate arrangements. Please contact us before making any flight reservations. International boys may borrow a trunk from camp.
