Baggage and Transportation

Baggage Instructions

All Session 1 and Full Summer campers must pre-ship their baggage to camp. There are 2 options available:

Iroquois Springs Baggage (NJ, Nyack and Long Island):  Iroquois Springs baggage service is a regional baggage pickup service where our truck along with Iroquois Springs staff will meet you at various locations, and helps you get your bags from your car to the luggage truck. This is a REGIONAL pickup, not door-­to-­door. This service can be used for round trip service or one-­way service.  It is the most economical way to ship baggage and as this service is provided by Iroquois Springs, baggage goes directly to camp.

The cost is $95 ones-way & $175 round trip.

 

Camp Trucking (Entire United States):  Camp Trucking provides door-to-door pick­up and drop-off service. You will receive information from Camp Trucking about their service at the end of April and they will advise you around June 1st as to the exact date of your pick-up. We suggest that all baggage shipped via Camp Trucking be locked. Please sign up with camp trucking directly on their website at www.camptrucking.com from February 15th.

Please remember to submit your child’s baggage method in the forms section of the parent dashboard.
