On Opening and Closing Day, Sam and an Alpine staff member will meet campers and their parents at the Birmingham Airport. Due to parking restrictions at the airport, Sam will contact you prior to opening and closing day to let you know where to meet the bus. Whether your son is flying to/from or meeting the bus in Birmingham, please be sure to provide us with your cell phone number.

Alpine counselors will be wearing dark green Alpine Camp shirts and khaki shorts so that you can recognize them easily. Our staff will help parents load luggage on to the bus. Campers may board the bus upon arrival and a counselor will take care of them from that point forward. Campers are to stay seated on the bus whenever the bus is moving and are to conduct themselves in an orderly manner and follow the rules given to them by the Alpine staff member serving as Bus Captain.

The charge for the bus is $180.00 roundtrip or $90.00 one way. Please be sure to complete the Transportation Form with this selection in your son’s Forms & Documents.
