SC 2023: Transportation form

Deadline for this form: June 1.

To fill the form, you must be logged in to your account created at registration.

SigmaCamp organizes a charter bus service from John F Kennedy Airport to the site of the camp in Sharon, CT and back for campers who are flying without parents. The travel time between JFK and the camp is about 2 hours, depending on traffic.

We need to make arrangements early to be able to provide transportation at reasonable cost, so we ask you to fill this form as soon as possible. The transportation prices are valid until June 1. If you do need to request transportation after June 1, a late fee will be added.

Transportation to camp:
SigmaCamp staff will meet students in JFK airport, NY, on Saturday, August 12, between 2-6pm and accompany them on the bus to camp. The cost of this service is $120 and includes transportation and extra overnight stay at camp. Note that regular camp starts on Sunday, August 13.

Transportation from camp:
SigmaCamp staff will bring students to JFK airport on August 20 by 1pm and will put them on flights departing between 3-7pm. The cost is $100 for return transportation. Sigma Camp staff will assist the campers with check-in and supervise children flying as unaccompanied minors as required by the airlines.

Please do not buy the flight tickets yet: We will get back to you ASAP to optimize arrival/departure times to minimize the amount of wait time at the airport. We will communicate with all parents requesting transportation in order to consolidate the number of flight for campers flying to and from the same location. To facilitate flight arrangements, please check that you allow us to share your contact information with parents sending their children from the same location.

If these times (arrival to JFK 2-6pm and departure from JFK 3-7pm) are impossible for you, you will need to arrange for a private transportation (possibly shared with other families). Please indicate your choices below and we will get back to you.

It is the parents' responsibility to check the airline requirements for travel of unaccompanied minors and to fill out the required forms. For international travel, more paperwork may be needed (depending on your country); make sure you check all the official rules and regulations.

Finally, only for campers who are flying, we also offer brand new set of bedding (bed-in-a-bag): pillow, pillow cover, blanket, blanket cover, sheet. The cost of the set is $45. The set is yours to keep after camp. 

If you require financial assistance meeting the cost of transportation or tuition, please fill out the financial aid form.
