FLYING IN FOR CHORO CAMP?
Fly into Bradley International (Hartford/Stringfield) 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.)
We recently checked the prices and found that the cost of an Uber was estimated to 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 your luck with sharing rides from the airport follow these links to the ride boards we’ve prepared. 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, online mapping services 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 2020 will be Cutter and Ziskind Houses on the Smith campus. (Where we had meals in 2019.) These dorms are directly across the street from the Smith College Campus Center, so if you need a street address for use in a GPS, use the Campus Center’s address: 100 Elm St, Northampton, MA 01063. The wings of Cutter and Ziskind come together to form a courtyard at the end of which is a long, white brick wall which will be easy to recognize across the street from the Campus center.
To The Academy of Music
The Academy (our concert venue) is located at 274 Main Street, Northampton, MA 01060. That’s the intersection of Main and Rte 10/ South St. Their website is here.
