We recommend medical insurance for your camper if they have no other form of insurance. At a cost of approximately $3 per day this policy from Travel Insurance Services offers adequate coverage should a large medical expense be required. Click here for more information. We recommend the following coverage options under “Plan Selection”:
Plan B, $0 deductible, no additional AD&D, no Intercollegiate sports coverage and yes for hazardous activities.
Camp Twin Creeks offers children a wonderful opportunity to spend their summer in a place of spectacular beauty, adventure and fun, while also learning or improving their English.
Once each day, they will have English class and the rest of the day they will spend with their cabin and friends conversing in English, with the guidance and overview from their ESL Teacher.
The charge for ESL is $300 per session.
When booking flights please book them on a morning departure, arriving at Dulles International Airport, Washington DC between 1pm and 5pm. This will ensure they arrive at camp at the same time as the other campers. Departure flights at the end of the session should not leave before Saturday, 2pm from Dulles.
Your camper will be met by a Twin Creeks staff member immediately upon their arrival at International Arrivals, after they go through customs. We will call you when we meet them and again when they arrive at camp. The $295 transportation fee covers the round trip from Dulles to Camp and back again. This includes round trip airport transportation and chaperone service, bedding and towels, luggage coordination, unlimited ‘e-communication’ to and from your camp, laundry, Twin Creeks t-shirt, canteen and miscellaneous supplies as needed.
Upon arrival in the US, your camper should use the following address on all immigration forms:

Mornings and evenings can be cool so please pack some warm clothing, sweaters and pants. We will provide your camper with sheets, blankets and towels. There is no need for you to pack these large items.
You can find a packing list here.
Your camper needs no money while at camp. You can provide $40 for the trip to and from camp for food and drinks.
You can easily write to your child by email. To send your camper email during the summer we use an email system that is integrated into our camper database and parent portal, CampInTouch. Full instructions will be provided prior to the summer.
