Visa Information

Which Visa to Get

For campers who must acquire a visa in order to travel to the United States, please be advised that you should seek a Pleasure/Tourism Visitor Visa, otherwise known as a (B-2) visa. Once registration and payment are completed, the director can provide documentation verifying participant involvement in the program.

Please do not hesitate to contact the camp director with questions about the international traveling process.

Flights

Destination

Campers attending Camp Stonewall should arrange to fly into Boston's Logan Airport; transportation to/from Logan is included in international camper fees. CSW does not offer transportation services to/from any other airport. Campers may arrange arrival/departure from airports other than Logan Airport if an adult is transporting the camper to/from CSW independently.

Flight Times

CSW understands that international flight times vary widely. Ideally, flight arrivals and departures will happen after 08:00 and before 22:00. Please confirm flight details with the director before booking.

Unaccompanied Minor Service

Camp Stonewall is happy to provide unaccompanied minor chaperones for participants traveling alone. It is critical that families/consultants indicate the need for this service at the time of flight booking, and understand that it may take a few days to confirm the UM chaperone many months in advance.

Traveler's Insurance

Campers are not required to get traveler's insurance, but it is strongly recommended that they do so. We refer all inquiries as to which plan is best to the family and country of origin.

 

Valuables

We recommend that participants - American or international - do not bring to Camp Stonewall any items that are valuable or irreplaceable.

However, some items are extremely valuable and must be brought with campers, such as passports, visas, plane tickets, and pocket money. Items in this category can and should be kept with the directors in the CSW vault. Campers' documents and spending money can be returned to them at any and all intervals during their stay. Camp Stonewall is not responsible for the loss or damage to valuables, including cash, if campers/families choose not to store them in the camp vault.
