Alternate ways to get to / from camp
If you miss the bus in Manhattan or Newark International or are planning to come to camp on a day that we’re not running chartered buses and need a ride to camp, here’s how you can find your way:
Assuming you don’t rent a car and drive yourself, take the subway from Newark International airport or from wherever you are in New York and go to New York Port Authority on 8th Ave & 41st streets. Purchase a bus ticket to Stroudsburg PA (there are two stops, either stop is fine). Once the bus stops in Stroudsburg, call an Uber or taxi and they will take you to camp.
If you are leaving camp on a day that we are not running buses and didn’t drive and need to head back into the city or the airport, call a local taxi or Uber and they will pick you up at camp and bring you to the bus station in Stroudsburg. Once you’re at the bus station, you can purchase a ticket to head back into Manhattan. When you’re back in Manhattan, you can take a subway or taxi to the airport(s).
Check out Martz Trailways (570-421-3040) for current bus schedules or contact Pocono Cab Company (570-424-2800) for taxi rates and information.
Please do not call and ask us to “send someone to pick you up” as we are unable to accommodate those requests.
*The bus rate is subject to a fuel surcharge and, if imposed, will be collected when you board. Reservations made after July 15 must be paid by credit card. Cancellations are subject to a $5 fee per trip, and changes made after your confirmation notice (issued in early August) is sent are subject to a $5 fee.
