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 considering shipping your camper’s trunk or duffel bag to or from Camp, you can use Ship Camps to schedule a shipment online, print labels at home, and have your camper’s luggage picked up at your door. You can learn more about Ship Camps here.

Shipping to Camp

Trunks should be shipped to:

Camp DeSoto
264 Highway Above the Clouds
Mentone, Alabama 35984

Please display your camper’s name prominently on the outside of the box. Her luggage will be waiting in her cabin when she arrives.

Shipping Home

We save all large boxes in order to ship trunks and duffel bags home at the end of the month. If you would like your camper to ship any of her things home at the end of Camp, please call or send us an email to explain your shipping preferences in detail: what items, in what box, and to what address.

The cost of shipping luggage will be charged to your account, and you’ll receive an invoice for this amount.

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.
