Flying to Camp?

The secret is out, and kids from all over the world are flying into our Texas summer camp to catch that little thing we call Huawni Magic.

Believe it or not, we’re experts at shuttling campers to and from the airport. If that’s you - here’s what you need to know about air arrivals.

Airport Access

  • Center Municipal Airport, Private Planes Only - 14 miles from Camp Huawni.
  • Gregg County/East Texas Regional Airport (GGG), American Eagle - 60 miles from Camp Huawni.
  • Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV), American/Allegient/Delta/United - 70 miles from Camp Huawni.
  • Tyler Pounds Airport (TYR), American Eagle/United - 80 miles
  • Houston Bush Intercontinental (IAH), All Airlines - 155 miles
Huawni Campers come from all over, including California, Colorado, Florida, Mexico, and even South America.

Easy Pick-Up

Parents, we make it easy and safe if your kids are coming to Camp Huawni by air. We’ll have two senior staff members call you when your kids hit the ground and when they arrive at Camp. We’ll do the same on their way back home if it’s too far for you to make closing day. Make sure and approve your flight schedules 2 weeks in advance with the Camp office. FYI - there’s a $75 shuttle fee each way for airport transportation. Make sure if you are arriving by air to login to your CampInTouch account and fill out your transportation form with all your flight details.

Closing Day is bittersweet - you get to embrace and share Camp with your parents while saying goodbye until next year to your best friends. We like to say, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
