Camp Opening Day 2017

June 24 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

!!!SOME CHANGES TO START TIMES!!

!!SAME LOCATIONS AS LAST SUMMER!!!

TRAVELING TO CAMP

Camp Opens on Saturday, June 24th. Parents will need to let us know via the Transportation Form in your child’s online account how your child will be traveling to Camp at the end of the summer. Please do not rely upon email alone, as it is not 100% reliable. In addition, we cannot remember travel arrangements from last year without being reminded (we’re good, but not that good!). We thank you for your assistance in our travel planning.

TRAVEL BY BUS FROM NY, NJ and CT

Again, we will assume that all campers will be boarding at the bus stops located in their home states, unless we are specifically notified by you of any other arrangements! If it is more convenient for you to have your child board at another stop, please contact us and let us know before the departure date. Please do not assume that we will remember last year’s individual arrangements.

New Jersey Departure — 8:00 AM on Saturday, June 24th – Marriott Hotel, Saddlebrook, NJ.  The hotel is located at the junction of the Garden State Parkway and Route 80.  The bus will be in the parking lot at the front of the hotel.  Check in no later than 7:45 AM. This bus must leave by 8:00, since it will be joining our New York group. Click here for directions.

New York Departure – 10:00 AM on Saturday, June 24th – SUNY Purchase College, Performing Arts Center Parking Lot, 735 Anderson Hill Rd, Purchase, NY 10577. Please check in no later than 9:45 AM. Click here for directions.

Signs are posted throughout the campus leading to the Performing Arts Center Parking Lot.  From the parking lot you will be able to see this view of the Performing Arts Center.

Fairfield County Departure – Please arrive between 10:45 and 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 24th – EXIT 22 SERVICE AREA off of I-95 in Fairfield, CT.  Parents are asked to the buses in the bus parking area just beyond the gas filling area and restaurants.

TRAVEL BY BUS FROM MA AND RI

Boston Area buses to Camp will depart on Saturday, June 24th at 2:30 PM, from the Riverside MBTA Parking Lot, Far End.  The station is located just off Exit 22 of Route 95.  Please plan to check in with our staff no later than 2:15 PM. Click here for directions

TRAVEL BY PLANE TO CAMP

If your child is traveling to Camp by plane please be in direct contact with the Camp Office no later than May 1st to confirm your child’s travel plans.  Please make sure that you consult with Jason in the Camp Office before booking any flights.  This summer we have children traveling to Camp from over a dozen states and five countries, and it is crucial that we know the complete travel itinerary of each child. Families interested in what their child should bring on an unaccompanied flight may find this link helpful.

If your child is traveling by plane please remember that luggage should not be checked, but should be shipped by separate carrier, as discussed in the “Baggage” section.

TRAVEL BY CAR TO CAMP —A SPECIAL NOTE…

We strongly recommend that new campers come up on the Camp bus rather than by car. The Camp experience really begins on the bus ride up to Camp–new friendships are often formed by the end of that bus ride. Good-byes are also easier at the bus. If you are considering this option, it is very important that you let us know as soon as possible.  Please plan to arrive between 2:30 and 2:45 PM., and make your departure as speedy as possible.
