​Travel Information

Trip to Camp

*June 14th we will travel via KTN>SEA>PDX on Alaska flights 178 and 2166


We will be traveling with the Sitka area by bus as their flights parallel ours within the hour.  A stop for dinner along the way will be necessary during the 2 hour drive as we arrive around 11pm the evening before the first day of camp.  This will allow us a good night’s rest and partake in the welcome events.

Once at camp, all electronics are given over to be locked away and safely stored for the week to prevent theft, damage, or loss. This also creates a better environment for building friendships while at camp.  

Cell service is not available at camp but there are pay phones for use with a calling card, which can be purchased at camp.  

Students electronics are returned upon departure.


Trip Home

We will leave camp an hour early to travel by bus with the Sitka area in order to catch our flights in the late afternoon.  The drive is approximately 3 hours.


*June 21st we travel via PDX>SEA>KTN on flights 2256 and 69.  

​Cost Breakdown

Cost of attending camp: $1,300

Camp Fees: $557
Airfare Approx: $545*
Additional Travel: $98
Other Expenses: $100
*Taxes and fees estimated

What do these fees cover?

  • Camp cost

    • Camp Fee covers ALL costs while at camp (lodging, meals, activities)

  • Travel to and from camp

    • Plane ticket

    • Ground transportation

  • Other expenses covered

    • Area camp t-shirt

    • Cabin supplies

      • Snacks

      • Sunblock

      • Toiletries

    • Event related items that the leader team provides


Students may want to bring spending money for additional food to or from camp itself.  There is also a camp store where they may buy guitar picks, sweatshirts, backpacks, journals, etc. There is also an espresso shop to enjoy.  


A 6:1 ratio of campers to leaders is ideal, therefore, we strive to stay close to that.  A portion of the camper fee covers volunteer leader costs to allow for the time away from work and other responsibilities.

​Fundraisers

Fundraisers

We understand that paying for camp is not always an option for some families as the expense is great, therefore, we will offer fundraising events to assist in this process.  Campers who earn money for camp seem to enjoy knowing that they had a part in the process. Each year there are a few students who raise 100% of camp fees at these events.


We have found the following list to be successful in the past:

  • Car Washes

    • Sunday afternoons beginning in April

  • Madison BBQ

    • Single day after Memorial Day

  • Mother’s Day Pick-A-Pie

  • Business Proceeds

    • AJ’s Burgers

  • Garage Sales

    • Saturdays in May/June

  • Event Boothes

  • Stadium Seat Cushions
