Chewonki Shuttle Services

Camper travel plans and requests for shuttle services must be made by May 1, 2023 to avoid late fees.

Shuttle confirmation emails will be sent 48 hours prior to pickup.

When booking flights please adhere to the windows provided. We are only able to greet campers at these arrival times. Please do not book trips that arrive at other times. Please contact the camp office with any questions prior to booking travel.

Chewonki does not provide accompaniment on third party plane, train or bus ride. Campers will be met at (or taken to) their designated handoff by a Chewonki chaperone. Traveling outside of our recommended travel times will likely leave your child without supervision or anyone to meet them. If an unavoidable travel delay occurs please call as soon as possible so that an alternative plan can be facilitated. In turn, we will contact you if we experience any travel delays. Under no circumstances will we leave a meeting place without accounting for every child.

A word about unaccompanied minor travel:
Due to heavy travel to and from Maine in the summer months, we encourage you to make your camper’s travel reservations as soon as possible to obtain the best rates and schedule. Most airlines offer or require that you purchase an unaccompanied minor service, which ensures that your child is boarded onto the aircraft, chaperoned during connections, and turned over to the appropriate person upon arrival at their final destination. Each travel service has their own policies, rates and services, so please check with the company for specifics. Any “unaccompanied minor” charges that we may have to pay will be reflected on your final bill. In cases of double payments for unaccompanied minor fees, it will be your responsibility to follow up with your airline. We will have paid cash to the airline, and will supply the receipt showing the fees we paid for your child.

Shuttle Fees

Parents who request travel-related services must have a credit card on file. Your credit card number may be entered directly into your CampInTouch account or you may call the business office to provide that information. Fees for all travel-related services, including no shows, will be automatically charged to that credit card on the day service is provided. (These fees include, but are not limited to, transportation, unaccompanied minor charges, transit baggage fees and shipping.) Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to avoid being charged.

    2023 Shuttle Schedule

    Arrive at the departure locations AT LEAST 30 MINUTES before the scheduled departure time.
    Campers should bring lunch and a drink in a small, disposable bag. Only pack enough for lunch, as we do not allow food in camp. Please do not send an abundance of sweet snacks and candy. Do NOT include any items with nuts as some campers have allergies.
    Important note for Puffins: Due to the smaller number of campers for the Puffin program, we are unable to provide the New York/Connecticut Shuttle for First Session Puffin travel to camp and Second Session Puffin travel from camp. This is reflected in the Transportation Form.

    * Check Individual Airlines for unaccompanied minor policies. Additional charges may apply.
