We work closely with families to make each child’s trip to Camp SAY 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 to Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Children taking individual flights are welcomed at the airport upon arrival. Our staff helps navigate baggage claim (and check-in for return flights) and campers and counselors then board a private, chartered Motor Coach for the fun trip to Camp SAY.
For Chaperoned group flights, 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). Campers and counselors then board a private, chartered Motor Coach that takes them directly to Camp SAY.
Our 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 may drop off a 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.
Long-distance travel expenses (air/train/bus or other travel) are not included in Camp SAY tuition, but arrival day/departure day local travel – chartered Motor Coach or van travel between a NC airport and Camp SAY (as outlined above) – is included.
Camp SAY offers need-based financial aid to help offset long-distance travel to Camp SAY (which requires a separate financial aid application). Interested in applying for financial aid? Learn more.
