Transportation To and From Camp

van-transportationWe provide chaperoned transportation from the nearby metropolitan areas to camp at the beginning and end of the summer, and help coordinate travel for our campers from further away. Campers who are flying to the Portland and Boston airports are met at security by staff wearing camp uniform at the beginning of the summer. At the end of the summer camp staff escort campers to security and remain at the airport until flights have departed.

Following is a description of what camp will offer for transportation to and from camp this summer. Camp will be providing bus transportation to camp on June 23rd from New York City, Westchester, NY and Boston and from camp on August 11th to New York City, Westchester, NY and Boston. More detailed information about both trips will be emailed to you one week prior to the departure date.

Our plans are as follows:

If you are planning to drive your daughter to camp please let us know that as well and please plan to arrive at camp on Friday, June 23rd between 2 and 4 pm.  If you are planning to pick your daughter up at camp please do this between 8:00 and 10 am on Friday, August 11th.  Thanks you!

From New York City: The bus will leave at 8:00 am on Friday, June 23rd from the south side of the Lincoln Center, 62nd Street. Please plan to arrive no later than 7:30 am.  We will send you an email once the bus has arrived at camp.  The Bus will return to the same location on Friday, August 11th between 2:30 and 3:30 pm.  We will send you an email once the bus has left camp for New York City and again when it is about an hour from the City.

From Westchester: The bus will leave at 8:30 am on Friday, June 23rd from the Bloomingdales’ parking lot in White Plains, 175 Bloomingdale Road, White Plains, NY 10605 (exit 8 off 287.)

The Bus will return to the same location on Friday, August 11th between 2 and 3 pm.  We will send you an email once the bus has left camp for Westchester and again when it is about an hour from the City.

From Boston: The bus will leave at 12:00 noon on Friday, June 23rd from the Northbound Lexington Service Area on Route 128 (also called I-95.) The Lexington Service Area is on the exit ramp between Exits 30A and 30B. If you are driving southbound you will need to reverse direction at Exit 29 (Route 2.) Please have your daughter eat lunch before departure and plan to arrive at the service area no later than 11:30 am.  We will send you an email once the bus has arrived at camp.  The Bus will return to the same location on Friday, August 11th between 10:30 and 11 am.  We will send you an email once the bus has left camp for Boston.

If your daughter is traveling to camp by plane please plan to have her fly into Portland, ME and have her arrive between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Camp staff will be at the airport to meet her and will transport her to camp in camp vans. Return flights on Friday, August 11th from Portland, ME should be scheduled to leave the Portland Jetport between 8:00 am and 12 noon.  Our experience is that flights that leave earlier than 8 am or after noon tend to be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances beyond our control.

***Bunk 12 travels to camp a few days earlier than the other campers.  They arrive on Tuesday, June 20th.  As is Walden tradition, Bunk 12 will be met at the Portland Airport and travel to camp together. Please try to schedule their arrival to the Portland, ME Airport on Tuesday, June 20th between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.
