We recommend you have transportation available throughout your week at camp. Most hotels & condos properties will require group leaders to provide transportation to the Event Center. If you plan to bringing buses, we recommend you have a standard size vehicle to use for those late night runs to grab ice cream for your awesome adult leaders or any other unexpected situations that may arise. Please also note that most beachfront condos do not allow bus or trailer parking.
Student Life has partnered with some area hotels and condos so you can book your own rooms at a discounted rate! This gives you the flexibility and control to have the number of rooms & types of rooms you need to best accommodate your group! Want to arrive 1 day early or stay an extra night? Coordinate your needs with the housing option of your choice! Head over to the Beach Page to find more details (select the Orange Beach button).
For the past several years we have worked to provide meal options at Beach Camp.
Due to increases in costs of food and labor, we’ve determined it would be difficult to offer an acceptable quality and quantity of food at a price point that would be reasonable for you to pay.
We understand this may come as a disappointment. Our goal in providing meals has always been to make your camp experience as easy as possible. However, we never want to make a promise that we can provide an affordable, quality option when we continue to get disappointing responses from catering companies on what they are able to provide.
We are working on some information to include ideas and options that may help make meals at beach camp as easy as possible. We are working on compiling options and ideas to help you dream up a better and more affordable week of camp for your students.
The Wharf Restaurant Group has prepared a proposal for Lunches and Dinners for our groups! Please contact them directly to work out details, number of people and buffet or boxed meal options.
Some local favorite restaurants include: The Hangout, Tacky Jack’s, Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s, Moe’s Original BBQ and a picnic at one of the State Parks.
Of course there are the beautiful beaches just a short drive from the Wharf! In addition, the Wharf has plenty of fun to offer you and your students including laser tag, Bazooka Ball, AMC Theatre, a giant Ferris wheel along with great shops and restaurants.
