Arrival Day and Getting to Camp

Due to COVID-19, all campers must arrive by car accompanied by a parent or guardian. We anticipate asking parents to sign up for a schedule of staggered arrival times to facilitate testing needs and intake screening. Stay tuned for details.

–––– Please see Covid and 2021 for more details –––

Pemi is a 1.5 hour drive by car from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) and 2.5 hours by car from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). For directions, please see Driving and Directions.

Notes of Interest for Arrival Day

  • We will require documentation of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival.
  • Prior to arrival day, please do everything you can to help your child follow a 10-day “minimization-of-risk period” outside of any school obligations, avoiding close contact with people outside of your household, and following CDC recommended behaviors: good hand washing, wearing face coverings while around others, and daily monitoring of health.
  • Pre-camp “isolation” will be critical to the success of establishing our “bubble.”
  • We anticipate parents/guardians will need to remain inside their vehicle for the entirety of the drop-off.
  • In order to establish and maintain our “bubble,” we will be unable to offer restrooms or our traditional reception to parents/guardians on arrival day.

Departure Day - Saturday August 14

Departure by PLANE

Airport travel is acceptable for departure days. We are offering shuttles to Boston or Manchester Airports on departure days only. Shuttle rates are posted below, and you may select those items on the Additional Options form in your online account. We print boarding passes at Pemi using the information you provide for departure on the Travel Form. Camp Pemigewassett staff will accompany your son to one of two airports, help unload, check in, and get to the gate. Chaperones remain at the airport until the plane has left the ground. We will provide chaperones’ names and cell numbers a few days ahead.

US campers fly out of Manchester, NH (MHT) and should try to schedule flights to depart between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM for chaperoned travel. International campers fly out of Boston Logan (BOS) and should try to schedule flights to depart between 12 noon and 4:00 PM for chaperoned travel.

Lastly, let us remind you that tipping of counselors is not done at Pemigewassett (including gift cards). The best way to express your appreciation for a counselor’s care and hard work is a friendly conversation and a warm handshake, or consider a donation to the scholarship fund in his honor.
