If you are taking a flight, you should plan to arrive at Newark Liberty International Airport. Train travelers should arrive at Newark Penn Station. Alison will arrange shuttle buses to take folks to camp from there.

Carpooling list is here:

Venue and accommodations

Hands in 4 Youth Camp, West Milford NJ.

We will be staying in camp cabins, which are pretty spare. Some of the rooms are shared and others are not. You can put your roommate preferences here:

The camp provides pillows, sheets, and blankets, but you should also bring your own more comfortable ones if you want.

You must bring your own towels and toiletries!

Information about who is rooming with whom is here


The camp will be providing all of our meals. Please make sure Alison is aware of your dietary needs well in advance!

Our accommodations include kitchens in each building, so we will have plenty of space to bring our own snacks and drinks.

Things to do at the camp
  • Hiking and walking trails
  • Boating (unfortunately we won't be able to swim because there's no life guard)
  • Ropes course
  • Fishing (BYO equipment)
  • Hanging out by the lake

Mid-September weather should be very nice, in the 70s, likely will be dry. Will update this closer to the date.
