Camper Luggage

Carrying sleeping bag.jpg?ixlib=rails 2.1
Trunks and large duffle bags are the easiest ways to pack for camp. Trunks are sturdy for shipping while duffle bags are easy to tuck away after you’ve unpacked at camp.

Mark luggage clearly in a permanent fashion, knowing that loose tags can become detached.

Luggage Size

Please do not pack directly in cardboard boxes or disposable bags (or your daughter will have nothing to pack her things in for the trip home); use a standard duffle or trunk.

Shipping to Camp

Luggage can be sent up to two weeks prior to your daughter’s session. If any luggage cannot be brought with you, please ship by United Parcel Service (UPS) or Federal Express. (Please note: both companies will only cover damages to your luggage if it is boxed, by them):

CAMPER’S FULL NAME AND SESSION
Camp Greystone
21 Camp Greystone Lane
Zirconia, NC 28790

Luggage will be placed in your cabin by Opening Day.

Shipping Home

We contract with a 3rd party vendor (Little River Roasting) to offer the service of sending your luggage home via UPS. Their cost for this service is a $35 handling fee per item plus the actual cost of shipping. (Shipping costs vary with size, weight, and destination. Go to www.ups.com to generate a quote.) Please don’t send a return label; they can ONLY use labels printed at camp. They will box, weigh, and label each item. You may ship as many items as needed. Shipping costs will be automatically deducted from your Greystone Account.

In order to ship your luggage home, please indicate this on your Online Travel Form. All baggage will automatically be shipped to your home address on file. If you want it sent to a different address, you must indicate this where asked. Please contact our regarding last minute shipping changes.

Trunks should weigh no more than 70 pounds. It is better to ship multiple things than pay for overweight luggage!

Bedding When Shipping Home

Because we box and process all shipped luggage prior to Closing Day, girls shipping luggage home will pack all items, including bedding, two days prior to the close of camp. Camp will provide sheets, a red jersey-style blanket, and anything else needed for those final two nights.

If you are shipping your luggage home but would like for your daughter to leave her bedding items on her bed for you to pack and take home with you in your car on Closing Day, you need to do two things: 1. Tell your daughter prior to packing day (send her an email three days before the end of the session so that she knows); 2. Bring an empty bag with you on Closing Day to pack all of her bedding to carry to the car.
