FLYING IN FOR CHORO CAMP?
Fly into Bradley International (Hartford/Springfield) if you can. It’s a half hour away, whereas Boston is about a 2 hour drive, and New York is over 3.
If you really have to fly into Boston and want to use public transportation to get to Northampton, check out Peter Pan bus line schedules. If you fly into New York City there are multiple train and bus options you’ll have to research on your own as they change from time to time.
SHUTTLE AND RIDE SHARING FROM BRADLEY
From Bradley you can either take a shuttle through Valley Transporter or share an Uber or Lyft to the Smith campus. (You will not need a car while on campus at Smith, so if you can avoid renting a car we recommend you do so.)
Check the cost of an Uber or other similar service, as it may be lower than the shuttle even if you take it all by yourself. If you share it will turn out to be a pretty cheap half-hour trip. If you want to try to set up ride-sharing from the airport with someone else attending Choro Camp, follow the link below to the ride boards we’ve prepared. (There are tabs at the bottom at the spreadsheet that allow you to toggle between Arrivals and Departures.)
We leave it to you to get in touch with each other and make arrangements. Seems to work. Good luck!
DIRECTIONS TO OUR VARIOUS VENUES
If you are looking for directions to one of our locations on the Smith College Campus, their online maps seem to work just fine. Here’s all the info you should need to plug in and get you here:
To Our Dorms and Check-in
Home base for us in 2023 will be on Green St — where we were our first year — in Tyler, Morris and Lawrence Houses. These dorms are directly across the street from the Mendenhall Center for Performing Arts, so if you need a street address for use in a GPS, use theirs: 122 Green St, Northampton, MA 01063.
To the Northampton Center for the Arts
The Northampton Center for the Arts (our concert venue) is located at 33 Hawley Street, Northampton, MA. It’s walkable from Smith, but on the other end of the downtown area, so give yourself 15 minutes to get there on foot from campus. Their website. On Google maps
