FAQ

Is it ok to book the 6am flight for my child’s departure on the final day of camp?

Absolutely! In fact, the majority of our campers leave on the 6 am flight.

There are no travel options to get my child to Sitka by 3 pm on the first day of camp. Is it better to have my child arrive late on the first day or to come a day early?

It is better for students to arrive later on the first day of camp. Your child’s counselor will make sure he or she is caught up with orientation and that any auditions are rescheduled. If it is not possible to arrive on the first day of camp and your child must come a day early, please contact the Fine Arts Camp office. There is an $85 fee for students who arrive a day early or depart a day late from campus (this fee includes a shuttle from the airport or ferry terminal). All early arrivals and late departures must be noted in the students travel form and arranged with SFAC’s Main Office by calling 907-747-3085 or emailing office@fineartscamp.org.

How does my child get from the airport or ferry terminal to camp?

Sitka Fine Arts Camp offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the Sitka airport or ferry terminal on all program arrival and departure dates. For students arriving and departing on other dates or at other locations there is a $15 fee for shuttle service. Sitka Fine Arts Camp does not provide shuttle service for parents or other family members. Be sure to fill out the Travel Form to let the camp office know when and how your student is arriving.
