Best option would be to rent a car and drive yourself.

Transportation in this area of the US by train, bus, etc. is not as good as in the UK or the northeastern part of the US. For the most part, everyone drives themselves everywhere - except within a city where taxis, buses, and other mass transit options may be available - but again that is within a city and not from one to another. Your options are drive yourself, Greyhound, or fly. You might be able to get a car service or maybe Uber to take you, but that would likely cost more than flying. Options for car services can be found on the Atlanta airport website. You could contact them to see.

The only option that doesn't make you completely dependent on someone eles's schedule is to rent a car and drive yourself. If you can't do that, Greyhound would be the next best option. You would just have to work your schedule around theirs. The only regional shuttles that I could find at the Atlanta airport don't go to Huntsville.

You could send him from Atlanta to Huntsville via Delta Airlines as an unaccompanied minor. There are numerous daily direct flights from Atlanta to Huntsville to choose from. The Space Center will pick your child up at the airport and will drop them off for the return trip. Hundreds of people every year entrust their children to the Space Camp people for escorts to and from the airport without incident. Be sure to contact Space Camp and Delta to coordinate sending your child alone. I would highly suggest you use early to midday flights to allow for weather delays and flight changes just in case there is an air traffic or weather issue that causes a delay.

"Without incident". Not quite. My grandson missed his scheduled flight home because camp staff failed to get him to the airport on time.

You should make your son aware of such a possibility and ask him to be assertive in his efforts to get to airport on time.

That said he should have a great time

I agree with @coastermeister. If you aren't comfortable driving by yourself, the flight from Atl to HSV is about 28 minutes and the camp does pick campers up at the airport.

Good morning, have you managed to resolve this issue of transport? Can you give me some pointers? I'm going with my daughter to the Nasa competition and I'm having the same problem. Thanks!
