Beantown Camp News: Only 2 Weeks To Go

For everyone planning to attend who has not yet completed a registration, it would be a huge help if you get your registration and full payment in ASAP! There are packets to assemble and the college has rooms to prepare. We want your complete camp experience to be smooth sailing from the moment you arrive and the more we can do in advance, the easier for us to make that happen:-) The weekend includes competitions for all levels and it is still possible to sign up. The competitions are always a blast and come with a wonderful, supportive audience. Got soul? Why not sign up for the new Soul division? That does sound like fun! Also new for this year, we have sponsors providing prizes for each division and they are all awesome!

  • International Lindy Hop Championships
  • Lindy Focus
  • Boston Tea Party
  • Canadian Swing Championships
  • Aris Allen

Join us for our 15th year - it’s going to be phenomenal! (Really, seriously, it is!) Camp runs from June 23 to June 30 with multiple registration options. If you’ve never done the full week, this will be the year to do it. There is so much that you will not want to miss! The schedule continues to be updated as the class descriptions are filled in. Be sure to check out the camp forum for ride sharing and other information. This is a great way to communicate with other campers and maybe organize a door-to-door airport shuttle or request a ride from a local. For our local campers, we would really appreciate if you check the forum to see if there are any visiting campers you can help out. It is wonderful when we all work together to make this an amazing experience for everyone:-) Beantown Camp information.

Salem Ferry to Beantown Camp

Traveling to camp from Boston? Take the Salem Ferry! What a great way to start off your camp adventure. The ferry terminal is only two stops on the Blue Line Subway from Logan Airport and easy to reach from any other Boston location. The regular fee with all charges added is $11.50 one way and $3 off with an Endicott College discount. Here are the details provided by the Event and Conference Services:

The Event And Conference Services Department is pleased to announce a partnership with the Salem Ferry (part of Boston Best Cruises), in offering a discounted rate for all residential groups who stay at Endicott. The Salem Ferry operates daily between Salem and Boston Harbor, and is an ideal way to arrive to the North Shore, or to go to the city and explore Boston in a casual and fun way. In 45 minutes, the narrated tour will even give you a historical overview of the areas you’re passing by, such as Salem Sound, Marblehead and the Boston Harbor. There even is a bar on board where you can purchase beverages or small snacks. From the Salem dock, it is only a 2.5 mile ride to Endicott College. To receive our special rate, please use code 3911 when booking the tickets online. This code does not work when buying tickets at the ferry terminal!
