Summer 2022

Camp Highlander prefers and encourages all campers to travel to camp by personal vehicle. If a camper flys to camp, they will be required to wear a face covering via Federal Law and maintain social distancing when possible during travel. Camp will provide transportation to and from the Asheville Airport.

Please visit the Summer 2022 Action Plan for more deatils regarding the summer of 2022.

Airplane Travel

As soon as your camper is registered for camp, you will want to start thinking about their transportation to and from Camp Highlander. Many of our campers travel by plane and we gladly offer a free shuttle service both to and from the Asheville airport. We do not offer pick-up/drop-off service to any other airports.

Please make sure your camper’s arrival flight is scheduled between 6 a.m. and noon on opening day. With checking in, meeting cabin mates and counselors, unpacking, eating lunch and heading off to activities, all of the fun begins as soon as they arrive … and we don’t want them to miss a single minute of it! On closing day, please schedule their departure flight within the same time frame (6 a.m. to noon) as we close down camp shortly thereafter and do not have the staff to stay at the airport past 1pm. If you encounter an issue with getting a flight please reach out to Mac Bishop.

Shuttle Service

If you take advantage of our airport shuttle service, a Highlander representative will be waiting for your camper to get off the plane at the terminal gate (this is by permission of airport security and not guaranteed). If we are not at the terminal gate, we are at the security gate/baggage claim area. The Highlander representative will escort your camper and their luggage from the airport to camp. As soon as they arrive at camp, they will meet their counselors and fellow cabin mates and head straight up to their cabin to unpack!

Florida and Louisiana Bus

We are at this time only taking interest in having a bus home at the end of the sessions. Please reach out to Mac Bishop if interested in the bus home. This will still be a chartered bus service to Boca Raton, Florida and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. These buses may also stop in St. Augustine (FL), Jackson (MS), and Atlanta (GA).

Fees for this chaperoned bus service include shipping of luggage from camp, one meal, and camp snacks and One way trip costs $350. This service has limited availability and fills quickly when avaiable, so we encourage our parents to sign up as soon as you register for camp.
