Travel Info

At least two weeks before each rehearsal “camp” weekend, you will receive an email invitation to attend via the Corpsdata system. Please be sure it doesn’t go into your SPAM folder. This invitation will include all vital details relating to the weekend, including the time and location of camp. Please be sure to confirm your attendance at least one week prior to the camp. If you need to request a pick-up or drop-off from/to a public transit station, you must submit all pertinent information through the RSVP by midnight the Tuesday before camp.

If you have not received a camp invitation prior to the Monday before a camp weekend, please contact us at: info@JerseySurf.org.

If you arrive at an airport or other transportation hub without having confirmed previous arrangements with us, you may be on your own. We do not advise our members, prospective members and volunteers to simply “show-up” without a plan.

Winter and early spring camps (November through April) are dismissed following our monthly “show and tell” performances which take place at 1PM. Members are dismissed at approximately 2:15PM following final corps meetings, load-out and clean-up. Later spring camps (May and June) are dismissed at the conclusion of rehearsal at 4PM. Members are dismissed at approximately 4:30 following final corps meeting, load-out and clean-up. We depend on the commitment of all of our members to ensure that our obligations to our housing facilities are met. Teamwork is the key to our success.

By Automobile:

Please plan to arrive at the school between 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM on Friday evenings. Registration will start at 7:30 PM and the rehearsal will start at 9PM. There’s always plenty to do to assist in getting things set up, and your help is appreciated. Please do not enter the school until there are staff members present.

By Air / Train / Bus:

Jersey Surf shuttles to and from public transportation centers are arranged exclusively through the RSVP screen in Corpsdata. You will receive an email confirmation several days before the camp with your pick up and other contact information based on your RSVP response.

2018 Season, NOVEMBER–APRIL:
When possible, the corps will provide transportation at no charge to and from
• Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
AMTRAK (and MegaBus) 30th Street Station in Philadelphia (PHL)
Philadelphia Greyhound Terminal (1001 Filbert Street)
Peter Pan Bus Lines – Mt. Laurel, NJ Station (538 Fellowship Road)
PATCO Speedline – Lindenwold, NJ Station (901 N. Berlin Road)
Travel MUST be scheduled to arrive BEFORE 9PM on FRIDAY evenings and depart AFTER 5PM on SUNDAY evenings.

For the 2018 Season, MAY and JUNE:
Starting in May, camps will be dismissed at 4:15 and departure times MUST be booked AFTER 6:30 PM on SUNDAY.

Failure to contact us before midnight on the Tuesday of the week of each camp means we likely CANNOT pick you up. If you request a ride through your Corpsdata RSVP, you will receive an email by midnight Thursday before the camp with pick-up instructions and contact information.

Confirming Your Attendance through the Corpsdata RSVP System:

Regardless of your method of transportation, please make sure you submit your RSVP at least one week before the start of each camp weekend. The staff and administration needs to know these details for menu planning, transit shuttles, rehearsal facilities, music, name tags and many more details… all to provide you with a World Class drum corps experience!
