Learn how to get to Keystone
For campers who are flying by commercial airline or private plane, we will meet you at Asheville Regional Airport or the Greenville/Spartanburg Airport on Opening Day. A staff member in a uniform shirt will be waiting on the other side of the security gate for your daughter.
Please try to schedule flights so that they arrive and depart Asheville or Greenville between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. Asheville is approximately 30 minutes away and Greenville is 1.5 hours away. Flights before 9am mean super early wake up times after factoring in travel and security lines at the airport. It is extremely important that we have your daughter’s flight itinerary prior to opening day.
If you decide to travel with your daughter and would like to accompany her to Keystone to help her get settled in, you will want to rent a car at the airport. We cannot provide shuttle service to and from the airport for parents, as our schedule is often quite rigid.
The Asheville Regional Airport is currently served by Allegiant, Delta, United, and USAirways. The Greenville/Spartanburg Airport is served by Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, United, and USAirways.
Every airline has their own policy for unaccompanied minors(UM). Please make sure to check in with your daughter’s airline while booking the flight to find out their policies. If your daughter is flying as a UM make sure that all fees have been paid prior to her flight. Most airlines only let you pay one way, so make sure the flight back UM fee is paid in advance to us bringing your daughter to the airport. When filling out the unaccompanied minor form for your daughter’s flight, the airline will require a specific name for the person meeting your daughter at the airport. Please put the Director’s name, Page Lemel, down as the name of the responsible party. The Asheville and Greenville Airport officials are used to working with camps and our staff members will be at the airport in uniform with proper identification.
Please be sure to pack a carry-on bag containing a change of clothes, tennis shoes, and a bathing suit.
Keystone is a three hour drive from Atlanta, GA and Winston-Salem, NC, and a two and a half hour drive from Columbia, SC and Knoxville, TN. If you are arriving by car, please arrive between 9 am and noon on opening day.
