If Greystone is responsible for taking your daughter to the airport, please enter her flight information on your Travel Form (available in the spring) through the Campanion app or through your Online Greystone Account.

On Closing Day, girls prefer to take the early flights (around 10:00 a.m. or earlier); otherwise, they are waiting at camp after all other campers have gone home (it can be sad!).

We service these airports:

  • Asheville, NC (AVL) - flight must depart no later than 12:00 p.m.
  • Private Jet Airport (Ashville, NC) - flight must depart no later than 12:00 p.m.
  • Greenville, SC (GSP) - flight must depart no later than 12:00 p.m.

Important: If you are flying into the area and renting a car to pick up your daughter from camp yourself, she is considered a CAR DEPARTURE. Only girls flying without their parents who are taken to the airport with a counselor from Greystone are considered flying home from camp.

Please note: We can only take campers to the airport who are flying alone (without a parent). We cannot take your daughter to the airport to meet you (the parent); please plan to rent a car or take a car service to pick your daughter up from camp.

Flight Itinerary: When you fill out your online forms, you will also share your flight information. Because plans and flights change, please plan to email our your most recent flight itinerary when your session begins. We need to ensure we have the accurate flight information so that we take your daughter to the airport at the correct time.

Items for Flight: If your daughter is flying, you can send items for her return flight home. These items may include a cell phone, iPad, charger, headphones, driver’s license, spending money, a passport, or other similar items. We will collect these items on Opening Day and have them ready for the return flight home.

Unaccompanied Minors: If your daughter is considered an Unaccompanied Minor on your airline, please purchase this while booking the ticket.

Luggage: We strongly recommend you ship your baggage home via our UPS service. Overweight airline luggage (over 50 lbs.) will add an additional $50 to $150 (varies according to airline) for each overweight bag.

Greystone can transport ONE checked bag to the airport for your daughter; we cannot take trunks to the airport. We will pay the checked bag fee for you and automatically deduct your Greystone Account after camp for the charges that are incurred at the airport. All other bags need to be shipped home via UPS. You need to indicate which bag will be checked and which luggage will be shipped via UPS on your Travel & Baggage Form Travel Form (available in the spring) through the Campanion app or through your Online Greystone Account.

Bedding when flying home: If your daughter is flying home (with Greystone), campers will keep their sheets and pillow on their beds until Closing Day but will pack their blankets and comforters. Camp will provide a jersey-style blanket and anything else needed for those final two nights. On Closing Day morning, campers put their sheets into their pillowcase as a carry-on for their flight.

Checking Bags

All campers are allowed one checked bag, and we pick these up the day before camp ends.
