There is a gatehouse as you drive onto Cate School’s driveway. The guard at the bottom of the gate will have the name of all CSI participants and will direct you to the parking lot.
If you are flying first to Southern California, we suggest flying to the Santa Barbara airport (SBA) or the Los Angeles airport (LAX). SBA is a 30 minute drive and LAX is a two hour drive from Cate. If you are accompanying your child to camp, please plan to arrive at Cate between 1:30pm and 3:00pm on the first day of the session and to be on campus by 9:00am on the last day of the session, leaving Cate no later than 10:00am.
Driver Pick Up Times:
LAX – Flights arriving Sunday between 10am and 1pm
SBA – Flights arriving Sunday between 11am and 2:30pm
Driver Drop Off Times:
LAX – Flights departing Saturday between 10am and 1pm
SBA – Flights departing Saturday between 9am and 12pm
If your child will be flying as an unaccompanied minor, please notify us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will pick up and drop off campers from the Santa Barbara airport for a fee of $80 ($40 one way) and from LAX in Los Angeles for a fee of $400 ($200 one way). If your child will be flying alone to CSI, please understand the airline’s unaccompanied minor policy. For airport drop off, CSI will help participants check in and walk them to the TSA line, but we will not wait with the participant until the flight departs. Once you have arranged your travel information, please let us know by email (email@example.com).
If you plan to spend any time locally, please check on the School’s main admission visit page for local hotel information.
