Pickups from Public Transit

You are responsible for your own travel and lodging expenses outside of the camp dates. However, we will try to coordinate courtesy pickups and drop-offs State College or any of the following locations on the first and last days of camp:

  • Airport: State College, PA

  • Amtrak: Tyrone, PA

  • Megabus and Greyhound: State College, PA

There are a number of taxi companies, as well as Uber/Lyft/etc, who will drive you to Godspeed if you’re unable to make our standard pickup and drop-off windows. (Usually 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the first day of camp, and 8 a.m to 2 p.m. on the last day.)


We have a number of campers coming from the same metro areas. Once the camp roster is announced, we will try to help facilitate carpooling and ride shares for those who are interested.

I just spent three days writing thousands of words, revising and editing fifteen chapters, meeting with editors, making friends who have no connection at all to my children, drinking cheap beer around a campfire, and remembering who I am outside of my daily roles of mom and teacher. I cannot wait for next year.
