To make it really easy for you Camp America books and arranges your flights to camp. So you don’t have to pay for the flights upfront, the cost is charged to your camp.

Included in your package is a return flight from a New York airport. In order to select this option you need to let us know the date you wish to return before you leave for camp. Alternatively you can purchase a ‘Flexible Flight Pass’ that allows you to depart from different airports across the USA at a time and date to suit you. With a ‘Flexible Flight Pass’ you can chose a return flight as late as 2 weeks before you want to fly home. No additional cost if returning from a New York airport & a date is selected prior to departure. Prices for a ‘Flexible Flight Pass’ will increase if you purchase it after you've left for camp.
