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! If you are looking for a trunk, we recommend Everything Summer Camp. Enter the camp code “trail291HD” for a special Highlander discount!

Please log in and complete the online travel form located in your camper’s registration to inform camp us about how your camper’s luggage will be getting to and from camp. ALL CAMPERS MUST COMPLETE THIS FORM (INCLUDING CAR RIDERS).

CAR LUGGAGE - Please pre-label all bags prior to arrival to camp.

Shipping Luggage to Camp

All Luggage being shipped to camp or home needs to be 48x30x30 or smaller and weigh no more than 75 pounds.

Luggage arriving to camp must be labeled with Highlander Luggage Tags. Two luggage tags per camper will be mailed to you in April. The tags should be addressed to Camp Highlander. The return address should include the camper’s name (not parents’ name) for appropriate cabin placement.

All luggage shipped to camp is delivered to your child’s cabin on opening day. Please make certain your child knows their 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.

ALL BAGS BELONGING TO YOUR CAMPER MUST BE TAGGED WITH A LUGGAGE TAG. If the bags are not labeled, there is a good chance the bag could get lost or misplaced. DO NOT PUT PARENTS NAMES ON THE BAGS.

TRUNK BOXES — We suggest all luggage be boxed (including duffel bags) for shipment through Fedex or UPS. This protects the luggage and prevents you from incuring additonal handling fees. We will do our best to store and reuse your shipping boxes for returning their 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. Our address is:

42 Dalton Road, Mills River, NC 28759.


We are happy to ship your campers luggage back home using our Highlander FedEx account. Any items left behind will be shipped by FedEx at the parents expense. FedEx Ground is the preferred shipper for Camp Highlander.

Arrangements for this service must be communicated through the Travel Form 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.
