Getting To Camp
(NOTE: Your arrival date is the date listed on your contract! If you have any questions, please email Wendy (email@example.com)
Camp is located in Smithfield, Maine. The closest city is Waterville, Maine, which is approximately nine miles from camp. We are approximately 1 1/2 hours from Portland (75 miles) and approximately 3 hours from Boston (200 miles). When planning your travel to and from camp, please take the following into consideration:
*It may be necessary to arrange an overnight stay in a motel/hostel/hotel on either or both of your arrival and departure trips,
if you plan to use the camp provided transportation.
*You are expected to be at camp for the duration of the time stated on your contract. When planning your return flight, you must take into consideration the date and time your contract ends. If your contract ends on August 17th, then the morning of August 17th is the earliest you will be able to leave camp. It may be better to plan your flight after 4:00PM or for the next morning to allow you traveling time from camp to your departing airport.
