PLANES, TRAINS, AND BUSES

For those campers who cannot make our charter bus schedule, commercial bus travel is available from many locations to Vermont or New Hampshire. We recommend Dartmouth Coach (www.dartmouthcoach.com) which offers service to Lebanon, NH or Greyhound (www.greyhound.com/home) which offers bus service to White River Junction, Vermont.  Train Service via Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) is also an option.

Farm & Wilderness van service is limited to the following airports, bus terminals and train stations:

 Vermont:  White River Junction and Rutland                     New Hampshire:  Lebanon and Manchester

  • The cost is $35 per camper each way ($70 roundtrip) to/from White River Junction, Rutland or Lebanon
  • $65 per camper each way ($130 roundtrip) to/from Manchester.

For all airport, bus and train arrivals, please schedule your camper’s arrival at the station/airport between 11 am and 4 pm.

Upon leaving camp, please schedule your camper’s departure from the station/airport between 9 am and 2 pm.

Please do not schedule earlier or later departure times as those times disrupt sleep for cabin mates as well as travelers and involve greater safety risk in pre-dawn van rides.

 TRAVEL BY UNACCOMPANIED MINORS

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that minor-age camper(s) can travel legitimately, safely, and without undue hardship when using commercial transportation. Commercial travel restrictions for unaccompanied minors have become increasingly tight and vary by commercial carrier. Many commercial carriers now require photo ID for all passengers. We recommend that you obtain a photo ID for any camper, of whatever age, who will be using commercial transportation to get to and from F&W.

We will hold passports, return tickets, and other valuables. Please have your child give these items to camp staff for safe keeping during the camp session.

If you have questions about transportation please contact Erik Biornstad at the main office. (802)422-3761 ext. 221 or [email protected]
