Yes. We understand the value of your child’s camp gear and include $500 of complimentary insurance for all domestic and international luggage shipments with the option to insure up to $7,500 for a nominal cost.
Ship Camps recommends you select an amount that best matches the total estimated value of the item you are shipping. This would include the total value of the items inside your box, trunk, or luggage and the cost of the roller suitcase or duffel bag you use to ship.
Shipment insurance protects against complete loss of your shipped item or against any physical damage that has occurred to the shipment while in transit. For items not shipped in a box, the outside casing is considered the shipping container and will not be insured.
No. You can ship your child’s luggage in a roller suitcase, duffel bag or a box. For instructions on how to properly attach the shipping label to their luggage shipment, please visit our support center.
Yes. Ship Camps offers three different luggage options: carry-on luggage (25 lbs), checked luggage (50 lbs), and oversized luggage (75 lbs). If your luggage is shipped and weighs more than the maximum weight for your item type, your bag may be delayed in transit and you may be charged an overage fee.
You can purchase a shipping box at your local carrier store or a shipping supplies store near you.
Their luggage needs to be packed in a roller suitcase, duffel bag or box. Make sure the shipping container is completely sealed and all zippers, buckles, and latches are tight and secure. You will have to affix the shipping label to the outside or their luggage as securely as possible with clear packaging tape if using a box or plastic roller suitcase. If using a fabric or soft-sided roller suitcase or duffel bag, we strongly advise getting a fly tag. It is also recommended to print a second copy of your shipping label and include it in an outside pocket (assuming you are shipping with a soft case that has one).

Yes. Bags and cases that are being shipped to camp internationally should not be locked for customs reasons. For more information regarding specific packing instructions for shipping your luggage internationally, please visit our support center.
