We can’t wait to welcome your camper home to Highlander this summer! Please arrive between 8:30am and 11:30am. As you arrive to camp on Opening Day, you will be greeted by our amazing Highlander staff.

Health and Lice Screening

Every camper will be temperature checked and screened upon arrival. Also, a professional lice technician will screen each camper for lice. If your camper needs lice treatment, the professionals from Heads Up AVL will provide a safe and effective treatment for $250. This fee will be added to your camp account.
