The majority of our campers are driven to camp by their family/guardian. The drive time from Richmond and Raleigh is about 2 hours, Washington DC is 4 hours, and Philadelphia is around 6 hours.
Check-in for AstroCamp is always between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Camp staff will meet you at the entrance to camp. Please do not arrive before 1:00 p.m. as camp staff are completing preparations for the session. Lunch is not provided on arrival day.
AstroCamp pick up is always between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Camp staff will meet you at the entrance to camp.
Please do not arrive before 9:00am as you will interfere with luggage, dorm check-outs, and camp staff preparing for your arrival. Any camper not picked up by 11:00 a.m. will be charged a late fee of $50.00 per hour or any portion of time thereof at the discretion of the Camp Director. This charge must be paid upon pick-up of camper.
If your camper is driving their own vehicle to camp, it must be left in our Main Office parking lot and the keys MUST be handed to staff at check-in. AstroCamp, Camp Motorsport & Camp CHOP does not accept any responsibility for the loss, damage, or theft of or from personal vehicles.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to provide transportation to or from the airport for Summer 2021. Transportation to and from camp is the responsibility of the camper’s parent or guardian.
YES! Campers attending more than one consecutive session of camp can indeed stay at camp from one session to the next. Campers will be fully supervised during this time. Campers cannot stay at camp before, in-between, or after our 2-week camp sessions. You will need to indicate your wish for your camper to stay over on your travel form. On the travel form for the first session attending please select “stay over for the departure.” On the travel form for the second session attending please select “stay over for the arrival.” If you have any questions about this process please contact our Camp Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-888-836-1212.
