If you are driving to camp in your own car or a rented car, you will not need to pay for any shuttles. Check-in at camp opens at 4:00 p.m. Please be kind to the organizers and do not arrive beforehand (we will turn you away at the door if you do). Keep in mind, there may be heavy traffic on Thursday afternoon. The address of the camp is 1 Pine Grove Road,, South Sterling, PA 18460. If you arrive between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. go directly to the dining hall and leave your stuff in the car for later. You will be able to drive your car to your cabin to off-load your stuff if you arrive before dinner. Afterwards the camp will close the roads and you will be forced to park in the parking lots. Any car that is on camp grounds not in a parking lot after 8:00 p.m. on Thursday will be subject to being towed.
IMPORTANT NOTE IF YOU ARE DRIVING TO CAMP FROM THE SOUTH: If you are driving to camp via the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Interstate 476), your directions may have you exit the Turnpike at exit 87 (route 903) (and likewise, your return directions may have you take route 115 to route 903 to re-enter the turnpike). This exit/entrance is open to E-ZPass tagholders only. If you do not have an E-ZPass, you should instead continue to exit 95 to I-80 East (when leaving camp, take exit 277 to I-476 South).
