Shipping Trunks & Duffels

Maybe your camper is flying to Camp and you’d like to ship her trunk and duffel to be here when she arrives. Or maybe you are going on vacation after Camp and want to ship some of her things straight home.

If you are planning to ship your camper’s trunk or duffel bag to or from Camp, we ask that you use Ship Camps to schedule a shipment online. A direct link to the Ship Camps service for Camp DeSoto is available under Forms in your camper’s online account.

Ship Camp services are available for both one-way or round-trip shipping of camper luggage. Ship Camps allows you to print labels at home, and have your camper’s luggage picked up at your front door. Want to have your items shipped back home after the term? Ship Camps returns directly to Camp DeSoto at the end of the term to collect your camper’s items, and delivers it safely to you.

Had a change of plans short notice? That’s okay! Ship Camps opens for booking 60 days prior to shipment date, and Next Day services are also available.

We would appreciate your consideration of this service, as it makes our handling of trunks and duffles much more efficient before and after Camp terms. You can learn more about Ship Camps here. If you have any questions, please contact Martin ( and he will be happy to help!

We are happy to provide this service for families. Your help on the front end will make it easier for your camper and our Camp Staff as we prepare to ship items home at the end of the term.

Please be mindful as you and your daughter pack for Camp that if she is shipping her luggage home, she will need to be able to easily repack all of her things in just the trunk and duffel she came with.

If she is flying with her luggage and only allowed a certain amount on the plane, we can ship home a (reasonably sized) box with any extras that just won’t fit. Please let us know ahead of time if you think that will be necessary.
