  • White Plains: Be at the White Plains High School parking lot, 550 North St, White Plains, by 8:30 a.m. the Sunday you are going to camp.
  • Katonah: Be at the A&P parking lot (Route 117, about 9/10 mile south of Rt 35) by 9:30 a.m. on the Sunday your camp stay begins.
  • Fishkill: Meet at the Ramada on Rt 9 & Rt 84 by 10:00 a.m. on the Sunday your camp stay begins.


Bring a lunch to eat along the way. Duffel bags, packs or suitcases should hold all the equipment you will need during your stay at camp. Because of size, foot lockers are a definite problem, and CANNOT be carried.
