We work closely with families to ensure each child’s trip to Camp SAY is safe and as enjoyable as possible.
For the New York tri-state (NY, NJ, & CT) and surrounding areas: We schedule one or more chaperoned flights from NYC into the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, North Carolina (close to Camp SAY). For the chaperoned group flight, a group of Camp SAY Counselors will meet you and your child at a NYC-area Airport. Campers and counselors will fly direct from NYC to North Carolina (typically less than a two-hour flight).
Children taking individual flights are joyfully welcomed by Camp Staff upon arrival at the airport. A Camp SAY counselor will meet them at their gate as soon as they depart the plane. Our staff helps campers navigate baggage claim (and check-in for return flights).
Together campers and counselors then board a private, chartered Motor Coach or Camp Van for the fun trip to Camp SAY.
Our amazing campers come from across the country and even abroad. For campers living outside of the New York tri-state area, or those not taking a NYC group flight, parents are welcome to drop off their child directly at Camp SAY, in Hendersonville, North Carolina, or a Camp counselor can meet your child at a pre-arranged North Carolina airport and travel with them directly to camp. If your child is flying into a North Carolina airport alone, a Camp SAY counselor will meet them at their gate as soon as they depart the plane.
Travel expenses (air/train/bus or other travel) are not included in Camp SAY tuition. Arrival day/departure day local travel – chartered Motor Coach or van travel between a North Carolina airport and Camp SAY – IS included (as outlined above).
As part of our Sliding Scale Tuition Program, Camp SAY offers Sliding Scale Travel that can help families offset travel costs to Camp SAY. We are dedicated to removing ANY financial barrier to attendance – including both tuition & travel support, so each child who wishes to attend Camp SAY may do so.
