To minimize your cost and eliminate lost duffels shipped via common carrier, we have partnered with Camp Trucking which provides duffel delivery service from your door to your daughter’s bunk and from bunk, back to your door. This service will add convenience as well as save you time and money. Please find the Camp Trucking literature in the front pocket of this book. Camp Trucking now services the entire United States. If you still wish to use a common carrier, both UPS and FedEx make daily deliveries to Camp. Please DO NOT SEND TRUNKS, as we have no place to store them, therefore; we ask that you pack in soft duffel bags or other collapsible luggage. If you plan to lock your daughter’s duffel with a combination or key lock, please send the combination or a spare set of keys (labeled with your daughter’s name) to the Camp Office – just in case.
At the end of the season, all Campers who fly home or ride the van to the Boston Suburbs will have their baggage shipped home. All luggage will be sent home via UPS – Fernwood Cove will bill you directly. It is VERY IMPORTANT that your daughter’s luggage have a shipping tag affixed before pickup.
CHILDREN TAKING THE BUS FROM NEW YORK OR BOSTON SUBURBS
We encourage you to send your daughters duffel via the Camp Trucking service described above. This will expedite your daughter’s arrival to Camp and her bag will be waiting for her on her bed. Your daughter may bring one (1) carry-on/small bag with her on the bus. Any additional luggage must be sent to Camp prior to her arrival, as baggage space on our chartered buses is limited.
CHILDREN TAKING CAMP TRANSPORTATION FROM LOGAN OR PORTLAND AIRPORTS
Your daughter’s baggage must be shipped directly to Camp. She may bring one (1) small carry on with her on the plane. Our transportation to Camp considers the number of seats needed for Campers only – we do not have space for large duffels or other checked luggage.
CHILDREN DRIVING TO CAMP WITH THEIR PARENTS
You are most welcome to bring you daughter’s bags with you to Camp and drop them off at her bunk. She will unpack with her bunk mates at a later time.
