For those campers who travel to camp by air, Brainy Camps utilizes Dulles International and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI), both of which serve the Washington Metropolitan area. Campers are escorted from the Baggage Areas to a camp car or camp bus for travel to our campsite. If necessary, arrangements can be made for the campers to be met at their gates by Brainy Camps staff. Bus travel is supervised by camp staff and all bus drivers are employed by the Hampshire County school system.  It is a two hour drive from both airports to our campsite in High View, WV.

For those campers who live within a 300 mile radius of our campsite and need to travel by air, Angel Flight Mid-Atlantic may be able to provide medical air transport for your child.  Please visit their website at for more information and to determine if your child is eligible for this service.


Train transportation is available through Amtrak into Union Station in Washington, DC or the BWI Airport Station in Baltimore.  Please visit their website at for more information.
