Teen Travel FAQs
All participants are responsible for scheduling their flights to arrive and depart from the designated airport at the appointed time.
What is the nearest airport and do you have a shuttle service?
- Participants should schedule their flights into the appropriate program airport listed above. All campers will be met either at baggage claim or right outside customs by their trip leaders. If you are traveling with an Unaccompanied Minor Service, instructors will meet you outside your arrival gate. After arrival, all campers and their luggage will be transported to our accommodations. On the way home, our staff return the campers to the airport, and remain there until each camper’s flight has taken off.
I’m nervous about traveling to another Costa Rica alone. Can I travel with your instructor?
- For campers in programs with longer flights looking for assistance when navigating customs and immigration, we will have a trip leader available to travel with students. Please call our office for flight details to arrange this option.
On both July 2nd and July 17th, 2016 Costa Rica participants can meet their trip leader at the Atlanta airport and travel together on flight #353 at 10:00am into Liberia.
What if I can’t get in by the set check in time?
- In order to avoid missing any planned activities, campers should plan to arrive on the first day of camp and depart on the last day of camp within the designated arrival and departure windows (listed above). Our office staff will be diligent in coordinating your camper’s travel schedule with our trip leaders, should there be any delays or changes in itinerary. Please contact our Program Coordinator Blake Brown to discuss arrivals and departures outside of our preferred times.
What if my luggage doesn’t make it?
- Occasionally the airlines will misplace luggage or your suitcases will miss connecting flights. We recommend campers keep essentials, such as medications, toiletries, bathing suit, and an extra change of clothes, in their carry-on luggage just in case.
Unaccompanied Minor Services
For all teen camps involving air travel, please be sure to check with your airline regarding their Unaccompanied Minor Policy. If your student will be traveling with an Unaccompanied Minor Service, our office will supply with the information needed at check-in, such as the name and address (as it appears on government ID) of the WB Surf Camp staff member meeting the student at their arrival gate. We will provide this information the week prior to camp via email. Likewise, the information needed for the returning leg is the name and address (again, as it appears on government ID) of the person meeting the student upon return. Please ensure that you pay the unaccompanied minor fee for both legs of travel. If you pay in advance for the returning leg, the camper must keep the receipt for verification purposes.
