East Coast Camp Details

All girls eligible for JV & Varsity fall sports teams were invited to join their teammates for a week at field hockey residential camp. 
Camp will be from Sunday August 2 - Thursday August 6. 


Transportation
Carpools have been arranged.  Since we have volunteer drivers, we are expecting riders to help cover gas costs. 
Drivers will receive specific maps for trip down, return. 
We are planning a lunch stop on the way down (Subway in Mansfield, PA) so that the girls have a filling lunch before camp starts. 
  • Families who are not driving are expected to pay $20 cash per way.  ($40 total - cash please)
  • Families who are driving one way are expected to pay $20 cash one way.  ($20 total - cash please)
  • Sunday departure -- please be at PHS by 7:30.
  • Thursday return -- drivers will bring girls home after 4

Location

Camp was originally being held at Susquehanna University.  Due to an overbooking on the university's end, the girls will now be at Camp Maple Lake, in Forksville, PA, a former US Olympic Village. It is a "wilderness camp" setting;  check them out on www.campmaplelake.com or on FB (Camp  Maple Lake)
