Flying to Colorado
- Due to the check-in time, you may have to fly in with your camper the day before camp starts in order to arrive in time for check in. There are many hotels in Boulder that can accommodate for the night. . If campers fly alone, they must do so the day prior, and will be provided with host families. If you are flying in on the first day of camp, the flight must land before 7:30 am to ensure that the shuttle can get to check-in on time. Flights on the last day of camp need to be scheduled to depart between 4 and 6:30 pm on the final day of the program.
- **It is very important that these times be honored so other campers won’t have to miss closing ceremonies on the last day. If you are having trouble finding flights that coincide with these times, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we can troubleshoot together.**
- Forward the airline-provided itinerary to email@example.com upon booking (PRIOR TO MAY 1) to assure shuttle service. Please also fill out the flight information on the registration site. Be sure to clearly indicate if your camper will be flying as an Unaccompanied Minor (UM) and in need of gate pick up. All other campers will be met by a Camp Wojtyla staff member at the top of the escalators exiting the “secure zone” of the airport. Remember to send the itinerary for both arrival and departure.
- There is a round trip shuttle fee of $50 per camper. You can pay this online.
Unaccompanied Minors vary from airline to airline. Below is information regarding the age requirements for minors. Virgin America and Southwest Airlines would be preferable since all campers(including middle schoolers) would not be considered minors, therefore making it easier to pick up and drop off the campers from the shuttle.
Driving into Town for Drop-off and Pick-Up
Drop-Off: The exact location for dropping your child off at camp is TBD but it will be at a park in Boulder, CO. From there, your child will ride a van to the start of their hike.
Pick-Up: Pick up will most likely be at the same park as the drop-off location following closing ceremonies.
