Each session begins the afternoon before our departure date. ACJ Staff meet campers at St. Louis Airport return to Drury Inn, hold a brief program orientation, enjoy a light super and go to bed early. Staff and campers wake up very early for our departure flight. Departure times and connecting flights vary each session, and year to year. These details are sent to travelers after they have been confirmed. Regardless of time, airline or connection, staff and campers travel together and are met in Jamaica by our van and driver, who will transport everyone to Seven Palms Villa, where the fun begins.
Campers and staff travel as a group from Jamaica back to St. Louis. We usually arrive home in the early evening. Parents should plan on meeting campers at airport after their return home.
Please use the following information when coordinating travel plans for your camper.
For those meeting us in St.Louis
Campers who will be flying into St. Louis the day before our departure date will be met at the airport by a staff member who will then take them to the Drury Inn to meet the other arriving campers. There is no cost for the shuttle service between the airport and the hotel.
For those flying home from St. Louis
Campers who need to fly home from St. Louis after our trip should not book their return flights until after our tickets are secured. We can also arrange for hotel accommodations and a staff chaperone to stay with a camper who needs to fly home the morning after our return (additional fees will apply).
