FLYING TO CAMP

The camp provides a pickup and drop-off service for campers from the Atlanta airport. This service is provided by volunteers (local chess parents), and you MUST sign up by the deadline in order to get a ride so that the volunteers can have time to plan. Deadline and sign-up information will be given out to registered campers as part of the camp forms that are sent out in early May.

Volunteers are also able to accommodate campers flying as Unaccompanied Minors. Please contact the Camp Director (jennifer@castlechess.org) if you plan to take advantage of this, as you will need information from us before you book an unaccompanied minor plane ticket.
