Camper Travel on Arrival and Departure Days 2024

Camp starts on the bus, so we strongly encourage every camper to take the bus. Camp Zeke provides a pickup at Newark airport for our many campers who come from further away. The only campers who may be permitted to drive to camp are those who live closer to camp than they do to a bus location. You can see more details in our parent handbook. Regardless of how you’re arriving, please fill out the transportation form on your CampInTouch account if you have not yet done so. Please see below for drop-off  and pick-up times. 

Important Note for Departures: Campers may only be picked up by the individuals listed on the Authorized Adult Pick-Up Form. Please be sure to fill out this form on your CampInTouch account. Authorized individuals will need a valid photo ID to check out campers at the bus drop-off or at camp.
