Travel and Check-in Info

 

Check-in/Check-out
Registration is 2pm – 7pm on Sunday. All campers must depart Saturday before 12pm.

 

PHC Campus Tour
On the Sunday when students are being dropped off for camp, there will be an Admissions Counselor on site to give a tour of the campus and sit down and answer any questions that parents or students may have about the college.

If you would like to know more about Patrick Henry College, the Admissions Counselor would love to be of help in any way possible. The tour will begin at 3:00 and last 30-45 minutes, and there will be time afterward to have any further questions answered. Please RSVP by noon of the Friday before the start of camp to the Admissions Office of PHC at admissions@phc.edu, and let us know what day you will like a tour. Thank you and may God bless your summer!

 

Flying
Transportation is provided from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) only.  See below for shuttles times. There are no exceptions to arrival and departure times.

 

Arrivals: The first shuttle arrives at IAD at 2pm Sunday and the final shuttle leaves the airport at 7pm Sunday. Note: Any student arriving after 7pm will need to pay for own transportation to PHC, even if the delay is outside of the camper's control. Instructions for taxi service from IAD to PHC will be included in the information packet.

 

Departures: The first shuttle will arrive at IAD at 6:30am on Saturday and the last will arrive at 12pm. 

 

Unaccompanied Minors: If a camper is traveling as an unaccompanied minor, they must arrive during our shuttle times and we must know in advance. Airline policies require Teen Camp staff to sign paperwork stating that we have picked up the passenger and require us on departure to wait with the passenger at the gate until they have boarded the plane. Thus, the departure must occur prior to 12pm on Saturday so that our staff can return to campus on the last shuttle.

 

Driving
Dinner is offered at 6pm. If you want to take advantage of that, arrive earlier to ensure adequate time to settle in.
