Traveling to AwesomeMath

Please keep in mind the following guidelines for residential students:

  • The flights should be scheduled to arrive and depart based on information in the table below.
  • AMSP staff, who will be wearing AwesomeMath t-shirts and name tags, will be present at these airports waiting for students at the baggage claim area of their flight. Students should not leave the baggage claim area until they have made contact with our staff. Our staff will make sure participants will arrive safely to the campus (transportation being arranged ahead of time).
  • On the departure day for each camp, we will provide transportation for students from campus to their respective airports.

Students Traveling as Unaccompanied Minors (UAM)

We do not provide Unaccompanied Minor (UAM) Service. Parents are responsible for understanding the UAM definition, as defined by their desired airline, to determine if their child is “qualified” to travel on the their own. If not, an adult (or other qualified chaperone) should accompany their child to their destination. In other words, an AwesomeMath Staff Member does not provide the airline with a contact name/phone number and meet a child at their gate. As stated above, we will have AwesomeMath Staff present near the Baggage Claim area for their flight. Shuttle service (for the child only) will be provided at no charge to/from campus. This same policy applies to a child’s return flight.
  • Click here for a list of some of the commonly flown airlines and a link to their UAM policy.
  • Other Suggestions for Students traveling by air who require UAM services:
    • Consider flying an alternate airline that allows a child to fly alone at a younger age.
    • AwesomeMath is happy to connect you with parents (after April 4th) of other older students who have been accepted to our camp from your local area.  You may be able to coordinate flying with another student who is of age to be considered your child’s chaperone on a flight.
    • Consider attending a different camp location/session which has a flight option to allow your child to fly alone or with older students attending camp.

Students who wish to use Cornell’s Campus-to-Campus Transportation Services

Please note that AwesomeMath can provide limited assistance for students wishing to use the Campus-to-Campus bus service at Cornell. We can make sure that students get to the bus station on time, as long as their departure time is before 2:00 PM on departure day. The closest bus station to our dorms is North Campus, Ithaca.

Very Important: During the summer, this bus service is highly inconsistent and the buses do not stop at all regularly scheduled locations on the route, leaving students and staff scrambling for other options. Please understand that AwesomeMath is not responsible for making alternative arrangements for students who will not be able to depart at their designated time. Parents should be in constant contact with their kids to make sure they board the bus (and possibly to make alternative travel arrangements, if necessary). Please refer to Cornell’s Campus-to-Campus website for more information and for reservations. Phone Number: 607-254-8747

Airline Unaccompanied Minor (UAM) Policies

Each airline has their own rules and definition of what constitutes an Unaccompanied Minor (UAM). Parents, please verify if your child is “qualified” to travel on the their own. If not, an adult (or other qualified chaperone) should accompany them to their destination. Below lists some of the commonly flown airlines and a link to their UAM policy:
