For All Girls Under the Age of 12 Traveling by Plane
Most airlines consider girls under the age of 12 to be “an unaccompanied minor.” Check with your airline to ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed and in the child’s possession when she flies. She will need these papers on both her outbound and return flights. We cannot be responsible for this required paperwork – it can only be completed by parents or guardians.
If you are interested in coordinating group transportation for girls in your area either by public conveyance or by charter, contact the Camp Office. We can assist you by providing contact information for other campers in the vicinity. If you have any questions call the Camp Office at 802-893-7850 or the Westport Office at 518-962-4720.
