If Camp Trucking does not service your area, we recommend the UPS Store in Waterville, ME. Their number is (207) 877-7867.
No trunks or duffel bags are allowed on buses or airport vans due to space limitations. To foster a comfortable opening to camp, staff members completely unpack all sophomore and intermediate campers (grades 2-6) prior to their arrival. For that reason, all camper luggage must arrive at least 4 days prior to opening day.
