Session 1 Luggage Pick Up Times
You’ve read our blog on Packing and Labeling. You followed all the guidelines and have perfectly packed and organized duffels. Your camper’s excitement has grown as they began to visualize all their belongings going to camp. But, wait a second. How do these duffels that you’ve so beautifully packed – and which might actually weigh a million pounds – get to camp?
Luckily, we do most of the work for you! We partner with a luggage transportation company that brings all your camper’s duffels to camp, so that the bags are waiting at your camper’s cabin when they arrive for the summer. The only thing you have to do is drop the luggage off, and let the luggage company work their magic!
Luggage may be dropped off between 4-7pm on June 17 or June 18 at the location that is easiest for you:
- Chicago: 2407 N. Elston Ave (Mello’s parking lot)
- Northbrook/Deerfield: 497 Lake Cook Road Deerfield (Deerfield Park Plaza Parking Lot between Tile Shop & Barking Lot)
- Buffalo Grove: Northeast Corner of Lake Cook Rd. & Arlington Heights Road in Buffalo Grove (former Dominick’s parking lot)
You can choose the site, time, and date that works best for you. No signup necessary, just drop your luggage off during the specified times!
Luggage fees are included in the bus fees, so if your camper is taking the bus to camp you do not need to pay extra to have your luggage delivered. If your camper is not taking the bus to camp and you would like to send your luggage, there will be a fee (please contact us if this applies to you). Unless you have arranged with us, please do not bring your duffel bags to the bus site on the day of camper departures as space under the bus is limited.
If you have any more questions please contact our baggage partners at firstname.lastname@example.org. During drop off days, if there are any issues, please call 847-441-4437.
