Luggage Policies

We allow each camper to bring one trunk and one duffle bag (or two duffle bags) to camp. We do not have room to store more than that! Please log in and complete the online travel form located on your camper’s forms dashboard to inform camp about how your camper’s luggage will be getting to AND from camp.

Tag All Luggage

ALL BAGS belonging to your camper must be labeled with their FIRST and LAST name. If the bags are not labeled, bags get misplaced and delivering the luggage to the appropriate cabin is delayed . PLEASE DO NOT PUT PARENTS NAMES ON THE BAGS.

Car Luggage

Please pre-label all bags/items prior to arrival to camp with your campers First AND Last name.

Shipping Luggage to Camp - NEW VENDOR

After doing some research to provide the best service to our families for their shipping needs, we have decided to partner with a shipping vendor called Ship Camps to improve the shipping experience and best meet the needs of our camp families.

Ship Camps has a wonderful reputation with other camps in our area, and a few of our campers already have used them this past summer to send their luggage to Highlander. In this partnership, Mac will still work with our families as the camp liaison, but all shipping will be done through Ship Camps or through the shipping vendor of your choice.

This is our Ship Camps landing page. When using Ship Camps, it is very important to adhere to their dimensions and requirements as to not incur extra fees. We will still accept boxes and keep them for the return shipment home, as long as they are form fitting to the luggage.

All luggage shipped to camp is delivered to your child’s cabin on opening day. Please make certain your child knows their lock combination or has the key to the lock on their luggage. If you are concerned your child may forget the combination, please let Mac Bishop know the combination and he will assist your camper. (

Trunk Boxes

We suggest all luggage be boxed (including duffel bags) for shipment with ShipCamps or Fedex or UPS. This protects the luggage and possibly prevents you from incurring additional handling fees if the boxes are form fitting. We will do our best to store and re-use your shipping boxes for returning your camper’s luggage back home, but we cannot guarantee the boxes will remain usable due to moisture levels on camp. If an issue arises, we will contact you on how to proceed. Please contact Mac Bishop for more information at

We begin accepting luggage for each session two weeks prior to the session start date. Please do not ship any luggage earlier than this and follow ShipCamps dates for shipping.

Our address is:

42 Dalton Road, Horse Shoe NC 28742.

Shipping Luggage Home

All shipping of luggage home will be through ShipCamps for the summer of 2023. Any items left behind will be shipped by FedEx or USPS at the parents expense. ShipCamps, FedEx Ground and USPS are the preferred shippers for Camp Highlander.
Arrangements for ShipCamps service must be made through the landing page and communicated through the Travel Form in CampMinder or to the camp office NO LATER than one week prior to the end of the session. Any alternate shipping address must be included on the Travel Form if needed.
