5 Ways Ship Camps Makes Summer Camp Travel Easier

Summer camp is an incredible experience for children of all ages. It’s a chance to unplug from technology, make new friends, learn new skills, and explore the great outdoors. But before the summer fun can begin, there’s a lengthy list of items you need to obtain for your child. Once that’s done, it’s time to determine how you’re going to get all that gear to camp. Will you drag everything through the airport? Or will you opt for an overpacked car with no visibility, instead? Luckily, there’s a third option. And it’s far easier and more convenient. It’s Ship Camps! Ship Camps is a service that will collect your child’s trunks and luggage from your home and deliver them to camp safely and on-time. This means all you have to do is pack, then sit back and relax. They’ll handle all of the heavy lifting and, another plus, you won’t have to pay any of those pricey airline baggage fees.

Ship Camps are also one of our newest partners. They’ve committed to helping A THOUSAND SUMMERS campership recipients ship luggage to camp.

They’re already trusted by hundreds of world-class camps and camp families to ship luggage to and from home. Here are 5 reasons why:

  1. Convenient
    We’ve all experienced the long lines at the airport, the dreaded overhead bins, the large crowds at baggage claim, and the looming concern of “I hope my bag rolls out next.” Ship Camps eliminates all of those worries and headaches. Once you experience traveling through the airport hands-free, you’ll never go back.
  2. Personalized
    The Ship Camps service is tailormade to what works best for you and your child. They offer flexible pickup and delivery dates and times to accommodate your schedule and allow you to ship various item types including luggage (duffel bags and suitcases), boxes, and trunks.
  3. Safe
    More than 2 million bags were lost or mishandled by the airlines in 2022. Could you imagine sending your child off to camp only to find their luggage didn’t make it? Not only does Ship Camps eliminate touchpoints at the airport, but every shipment comes with access to real-time tracking and an unbeatable on-time delivery guarantee. So, your bags will be where you need
    them, when you need them there. All shipments also come with complimentary insurance. If your child happens to be traveling with more expensive items, you can select a higher insurance amount that best matches the value of their belongings.
  4. Time-Saver
    Arguably the greatest benefit of shipping luggage to camp is that it saves you time on both the sending and receiving ends. Scheduling your shipment is easy and can be completed over the phone or online in just a few clicks. Shipping labels will be mailed to you in ready-to-attach pouches for qualifying orders. Then, all that’s left to do is wait for pickup! No need to worry about packing your car or expending energy at the airport. Upon arrival at camp, you’ll find the move-in process is simplified, too. Since your child’s bags are already there, you’ll be able to enjoy the last few moments with them to the fullest, instead
    of worrying about the logistics of getting them settled in.
  5. White-Glove
    The cherry on top to Ship Camps is its exceptional customer support team. They are available seven days a week by phone, text, or email for any questions or concerns you may have. They also closely monitor your child’s shipment to ensure on-time delivery and send you email updates when your bags have been picked up, once they’re out for delivery, and after they’ve been delivered to summer camp.

They’ve truly thought of everything so you don’t have to. Enjoy the Ship Camps experience all season long and make this summer the best one yet. Get a free quote to get started!
