Transportation:

Travel by private car is by far the safest mode of travel right now. For this reason we are unable to offer shuttles to and from camp this year. If you ordinarily rely on the shuttle, please start making other arrangements now.

If you ordinarily fly to camp, you need to adhere to the New York State quarantine guidelines as they pertain to those flying from out-of-state. This means you will need to fly to the New York area well before camp and quarantine for 10 days before Opening Day. Please start making those arrangements now. 

If you are an essential worker or need to discuss this travel protocol for any reason, please reach out to us via email, subject line: opening day travel protocols. 

Drop off times:

Now that the majority of our campers will be fully vaccinated by the time camp starts, we are able to streamline Opening Day into just two arrival times. 
 
For the Session Starting on June 29:
All campers enrolled in the July Embedded session (3 weeks) should arrive at 3:30pm.
All other campers should arrive at 2:00pm.
 
If you have a camper enrolled in the Embedded session and another sibling enrolled in the July session, you should arrive altogether as a family at 3:30 p.m. (or arrive separately at the scheduled times).
 
If you are unable to arrive at the scheduled time, please contact travel@edenvillagecamp.org as soon as possible. Every unvaccinated camper must arrive at drop off with a parent or caregiver who will wait for the results of their rapid Covid test; if the test is positive, that camper will not be permitted on site.
 

There will be a mandatory Parent Webinar on Thursday evening, June 17, at 8 p.m. to discuss details of the pre-camp low-risk activity period as well as additional details regarding Opening Day. You can join that Webinar by clicking here.

For the Session Starting on August 3:

Please be patient for additional Opening Day details. 

Speaking to the nurse, social worker, chef or counselor:

Usually, many of these conversation can and do happen on Opening Day. This year, that won't be possible, although it is important for you to connect with these people before camp if you have a question or concern. Someone from camp will be calling you before your arrival to go over things you would ordinarily discuss on opening day. If you want to preemptively schedule a call like this to fit your schedule, please email us, with the subject line: pre-camp check-in.
