In light of security measures being implemented by the airline industry for all arriving and departing air travel, US Performing Arts Camps is taking every step possible to make your child’s travels safe and simple this summer. Please take special note of our pickup and dropoff procedures for all US Performing Arts campers traveling to camp by air. Also, as a reminder and per airline regulations, children age 12 and older must present a valid photo I.D. or birth certificate to board any flight. Please make sure your child is carrying some form of identification.
If your child is arriving or departing by air and is planning to utilize US Performing Arts airport transportation service to or from campus:
- We must receive your completed travel forms, along with a copy of your child’s itinerary, in our office no later than two weeks before the start of your program.
- Required airport arrival, departure, and transportation fees are site specific and differ from program to program. Please refer to our Check-in and Travel Information block on the page for the program.
A fee of $100.00 will be charged for shuttles needed for flights outside of the specified time frames.
- We must receive full payment for all transportation upon receiving your travel forms. We cannot reserve a seat on the shuttle without transportation payment.
Student Pick Up
Camp staff members will meet campers at the baggage claim area of their flight. They will be wearing US Performing Arts t-shirts and holding US Performing Arts welcome signs. In the unlikely event that a staff member is late, please have your child remain at the baggage claim area of their flight until someone arrives.
Student Drop Off
Students will be escorted to security and be given an emergency phone number in case of last minute delays or cancellations due to flight complications, etc.
If a camper is flying as an unaccompanied minor, please contact the Company Manager for your program, listed under “Important Contact Information” in your information packet.
Parents are encouraged to furnish campers with cell phones and/or calling cards. Please make sure your child travels with all the phone numbers provided in your information packet to ensure a smooth and easy arrival and/or departure in the event of a delay or cancellation.
USPA highly recommends that students secure travel insurance to cover trip cancellation, interruption, and/or medical emergency.
