Some parents choose for their son(s) to fly to and from camp by themselves; others send their son(s) to camp via plane but then pick them up at the end of the session (and vice versa). If you would like your son(s) to fly to or from camp unaccompanied, we are happy to provide transportation for him to and from the Birmingham, AL airport. Birmingham, AL is the only city where Alpine Camp provides this service to camp families. You will need to book your own reservations for your son(s).
Campers flying into Birmingham need to arrive between 8:00 AM CDT and 11:00 AM CDT on Opening Day. Departures from camp should be scheduled between 8:00 AM CDT and 11:00 AM CDT on Closing Day. If you have any questions about flights, etc. please call our office at 256-634-4404 and speak with our travel coordinator, Monique Fielder. The cost for this service is $85.00 one way or $170.00 round trip.
We will have staff members at the Birmingham, AL airport meeting flights on Opening Day and delivering boys to their flights on Closing Day. Please provide your son’s complete itinerary including airline, flight number, and time of arrival/departure, including all connecting flight information on the travel form and reconfirm all travel information a week before your son(s) comes to camp. The travel form will be available in your son’s Forms and Documents in the Spring. If you have an e-ticket for your son(s) please forward a copy to Monique Fielder (email@example.com). Campers may not arrive at camp prior to opening day.
