Can my camper fly to Expedition Camp?

Flying into Denver International Airport to catch the shuttle to camp? See details regarding desired flight times, shuttle cost, unaccompanied minor forms, and more.

For campers who are flying into Colorado, Avid4 Adventure will provide a shuttle service to and from the Denver International Airport (DEN) with prior communication and acceptance from the camp office. At this time we are unable to offer a shuttle service for our California and Oregon Expedition Camps.

  • The fee for this shuttle service is $40 one-way and $80 round trip.
  • All participants under 12 years old must travel with an Unaccompanied Minor Form, purchased at the time flight reservations are made; this is provided through the airline and must be prepaid.

Expedition Camp has pre-designated pick-up/drop off times

We understand that flying is expensive and arrival/departure times can vary and change the cost of the ticket, however, we ask that you schedule your arrival/departure times within the pre-designated time-frames we offer.

There will be an additional $50 charge when a camper arrives outside of the “standard” time because we will have to hire an additional staff member to arrange for pick-up.

Sunday Arrival
Please schedule for arrival to DIA between 9:00 am and 10:00 am MST.

Friday Departure
Please schedule their departure from DIA between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm MST.

Arrival

Unaccompanied Minors will be met at the gate and traditional campers flying into Denver will be met at the baggage claim by Avid4 Adventure camp personnel wearing a staff uniform and holding a sign with your camper’s name on it. Campers will then be escorted to a marked Avid4 Adventure van for the 1-hour trip to camp. Campers should carry a list of phone numbers, including the Expedition Camp Director, and a small amount of travel money. Camp staff will inform the parents/guardians by telephone, that their camper has arrived safely.

Tickets, passports, money, cell phones, and Unaccompanied Minor forms will be collected from the camper and placed in the camp office until departure.

Departure

Our staff will escort your child to the airline check-in counter and if your camper is 12 and under, accompany your child to their gate until they board their flight. For campers over 12, our staff will escort your child to the check-in counter and remain with them until they proceed through the main security area. Time spent in DIA will vary widely depending upon flight changes and delays. Expect a long day!

Travel Tips

It is highly recommended that campers pack a change of clothes in their carry-on/backpack along with any money, identification, tickets, medications, and paperwork. This is essential in the instance that their luggage arrives late. Please be sure to label clearly your camper’s luggage with his/her name.

Pre-Camp Checklist

No later than 30 days prior to departure, the camp director must have the following information:

  • Name of camper
  • Airline
  • Flight number
  • Flight Arrival and/or Departure Date and Time
  • Cell phone number of camper
