In the spring, we will send luggage tags to use for labeling your bags. Please make sure these tags are facing out in the back of your vehicle, so they are easy to see, when you arrive on Opening Day. Mark luggage clearly in a permanent fashion, knowing that loose tags can become detached.
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.
Learn how to pack and how to get your items 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
21 Camp Greystone Lane
Zirconia, NC 28790
Luggage will be placed in your cabin by Opening Day.
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!

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.
