On Opening and Closing Days, parents have the option of meeting Alpine counselors at the cell phone waiting area of Birmingham Airport to drop off/pick up their son.
On Opening Day, our staff will greet parents and campers, help load luggage and welcome campers for the ride to camp. Campers may board the bus upon arrival and a counselor will take care of them from that point forward. Once all campers have arrived, the counselors will drive to Alpine. Upon arrival, the boys will be greeted by a director and their cabin counselor and be taken to meet the other boys in their cabins.
On Closing Day, our staff will greet parents, help load luggage and deliver your child to you after a great summer at camp.
For both Opening and Closing Days, we usually give you a 2 hour window of time to meet the bus. If you choose this option, our travel coordinator will contact you via email prior to opening day with all the details. The cost for this service is $85.00 each way. If you would like to take advantage of this option, please complete the travel form in your son’s Forms and Documents. It will be available in the Spring.
On Closing Day of Second Term, we charter a bus to take boys from Alpine to the Smith Wills Stadium parking lot in Jackson, MS. The boys are up early, with their luggage packed. They get a final camp breakfast and the bus leaves camp at approximately 6:00 AM CDT. The bus usually pulls into the parking lot of the stadium between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM CDT. We ask that parents choosing this option be at the stadium no later than noon on closing day. The cost for this option is $190.00.
Spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that we need a minimum of 25 boys to ride the bus and that we will cancel the bus if we do not have the minimum number of boys signed up. For more information or if you have any questions, please call our office (256-634-4404) and speak with our travel coordinator, Monique Fielder. If you would like to choose this option, please complete the travel form in your son’s Forms and Documents. It will be available in the Spring.
