*Please note these times are estimates. Please arrive early and be prepared to wait as needed. The shuttle will not wait for late arrivals and there will be no refunds for missing a shuttle.
*Pick-up times will vary, depending on SEA arrivals. If we have no SEA arrivals, our departure from near SEA will be 8am and Olympia will be at 9:00 am. In the weeks prior to the start of camp we will send an email confirmation with confirmed pick-up times.
Will there be somebody to meet my child when he/she arrives at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport? Will there be somebody to help check-in my child on Friday as well?
The Lasting Adventures staff member/driver will meet your child/participant in the bus area outside the Arrivals Terminal at SEA. Your child/participant should carry a cell phone with them to check in with you and with the driver when they get outside (please note, cell phones will be packed away during the hiking portion of their trip and will not be accessible). On Friday airport drop-offs, the shuttle will drop-off at the respective airline terminals and check-in areas.
Who does my child call/contact when he/she arrives at the airport?
Your child/participant will contact the shuttle driver when they’ve arrived at the bus area outside the Arrivals terminal. The driver’s telephone number will be shared with you 24-48 hours prior to the start of the trip. As needed, the number for Lasting Adventures is 1-800-513-8651. (This message line pings multiple members on our team.)
What if the scheduled flight arrives after 10 am?
Please contact us to see if we can make arrangements. In general, a flight arriving a few minutes after 10 am won’t cause much inconvenience, but because we have some trips hiking into the wilderness on the first day of the adventure, even minor delays may cause significant problems in getting trips on the trail.
Where can my child who is flying to you pick up lunch?
There will be a snack/lunch and restroom stop in Olympia as well as one more on the way to our destination.
If the Youth Program starts earlier, wont this shuttle be late?
Technically yes, but it’s ok! We plan on the Adventure Shuttle arriving after all other participants, as this gives us time to get earlier arrivals checked in and fully set up. When the Adventure Shuttle arrives, we only need to get those participants who are arriving on the Adventure Shuttle set up with their groups before setting out on the adventure. Once your child arrives to Olympic, we will also let you know.

When will I hear more updates and confirmed locations?

No problem, just contact us ASAP by email. Outside of 60-days in advance, there is no cost. Between 60-days and 30-days in advance we will retain 50% of the cost, and within 30-days there is no refund.
What other options are there if we are not coming from the Seattle Area?

Lasting Adventures will be providing transportation from near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and the greater Seattle-Tacoma area to our Youth Backpacking Programs in Olympic National Park. Skip the long drive and traffic while helping save the environment.
