For those not driving to camp: A convenient and inexpensive option for travel to camp is taking a bus to Conway, NH (only 20 minutes from camp!) Current schedules and fares are available at the Greyhound website. Concord Coach Lines also has bus service to Conway from Boston and Manchester.

Portland is over an hour drive each way, so we encourage non-driving campers to make Conway, NH their destination, rather than Portland if at all possible. Your Mainewoods volunteers are stretched very thin, and trips to Portland become quite time-consuming and take us away from the work that needs to be done at camp. For those who are flying, a flight to Boston with a bus to Conway could be a good way to go. Mainewoods will charge a pick-up/drop-off fee of $30.00 per person each way for a Portland trip or $10.00 per person each way for a Conway trip.

Another alternative is to fly into Manchester, NH, which often has very low airfares, and rent a car.
