THERE ARE 3 TRAVEL OPTIONS FOR STAFF:

Driving Option 1.

Drive in your private vehicle from your home to a school in Cleveland, GA, approximately 4 miles from CBM.  Please do not carpool with other staff.  We will do first-day COVID-19 screening. Following your screening, you’ll drive on to CBM where you’ll be greeted and welcomed, provided your Staff Training materials and assigned cabin.  You will have time to unpack and meet with your specialty/unit team and heading to the dining hall for dinner.

NOTE:  All staff will be permitted to drive to CBM this summer.  This option, however, may not be the best option for you.

Please consider:  Camp Barney will be a virtual “bubble” this summer.  Staff days-off and time-off, beginning upon arrival through the end of 2nd session (or your contracted employment) will be on-site at Camp Barney.  Therefore, you may wish to have a family member drive you up to the school in Cleveland, GA this summer (driving option 2) approximately 1 hour/20 minutes from metro-Atlanta, for the pre-arrival COVID-19 screening and make the 4-mile journey with your luggage on our CBM coach shuttle buses – versus having your car remain parked in our ‘dusty’ CBM parking lot for the duration of camp

Driving Option 2.

Drive with a family member in your private vehicle from your home to a school in Cleveland, GA, approximately 4 miles from CBM.  Please do not carpool with other staff.  We will do first-day COVID-19 screening.  Following your screening, you can say “goodbye” family and may then board our CBM coach shuttle buses, with your luggage, and head to camp.  You will be greeted and welcomed, provided your Staff Training materials and assigned cabin.  Luggage will be driven to your Village Porch.  You will have time to unpack and meet with your specialty area/unit team and heading to the dining hall for dinner.

 Flying Option.

Staff can fly to and from your home city via Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International airport. Staff will be guided to “baggage claim” and then, with luggage, to our CBM airport shuttle heading up to CBM.  Staff will continue wearing masks and physical distancing on the 90-minute journey up to camp.

Staff should plan to arrive into the Atlanta airport on the first day of your Staff Training date between 11:00am – 1:00pm.
