How Will My Child Get to Camp?

The first day of camp is an exciting start to the summer. We want to make sure that your Camper arrives to a welcoming staff member and starts developing relationships from the start. There are three different ways to come to and from camp:

  • On a Bus up from Northbrook, IL
  • On a Plane to either Chicago O’hare or Milwaukee’s Mitchell Airport
  • In a Car that’s driven by a family member or friend

Bus Information

The Northbrook bus picks up and drops off at the same location:

Glenbrook North High School
2300 Shermer Road
Northbook, IL 60062

The bus will load at the far South-West lot which is closest to the field. Turn on Sherman Drive, which is off of Shermer Road, between Maple School and Glenbrook North High School.

Flight Information

We understand and appreciate that by choosing Beber Camp, many Parents are also making a decision to send your child a great distance. The partnership between Parents and Camp is essential in helping to ensure that everyone has a safe, positive summer experience. We are committed to working with your Family to make getting to and from Camp as safe and easy as possible.

Escorted Flight Options

Beber Camp provides staff escorted flights from our Cleveland, Denver, New York, and Louisville communities, as well as our Pioneer Israel Trip. Our staff will meet you and your camper at the airline check-in counter, bring the group through security, and fly to Milwaukee or Chicago with the campers. They will then take the bus up to camp with other campers and staff. At the end of each session, your camper will fly with the group back home and the staff member will bring the campers to baggage claim.

Non-Escorted Flight Options

If flying into O’hare your Child will be met at the gate. You must provide your airlines with the name and contact information for the Beber Staff member meeting the flight so that we can get our staff through security.

When making your reservation, call your airline and tell them a “Beber staff member” will be meeting the flight. You can then call later and provide specifics. Bus transportation is provided at no additional charge between Chicago O’Hare/Milwaukee’s Mitchell Airport and Beber Camp.

Arrival and Departure Times

Your Child’s flight should be scheduled to arrive at O’Hare or Milwaukee on the first day of the session (June 18 or July 16) and leaving on the last day (July 14 or August 11) between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.

Due to the logistical realities of transporting 120+ Campers to/from the airports and Camp, we need to fill buses with Campers and staff before they can get sent up to Camp. This is why it is critical you book travel for your Campers between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Please do not book flights outside of this window.

Driving to Camp

Driving up to camp is a great way to see your Child’s bunk, meet some of their counselors and get a sense of what camp looks like and what your children have been writing home about!

  • Drop off is between 12:00 Noon and 2:00 PM on the first day of the session.
  • Pick up on the last day of camp is between 9:00 AM and 12:00 Noon.

For directions to camp please see check out our directions page.
