Transportation and Lodging

If you’re coming from some distance, you’ll probably want to arrive on Thursday or Friday evening (depending on if you’re attending API Day on April 26 or want to go to the group dinner Friday evening) and leave on Sunday.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re having trouble finding a ride or have questions about transportation or lodging.

Getting Here

We’ve got you covered, no matter how you’re traveling


Because TC Camp is all about networking and sharing, why not start with the drive? If you’re interested in carpooling (either driving or riding), we’ve set up an account at where you can register:

Be sure to coordinate with the other drivers and riders. It might also make sense for all people in one car to stay at the same hotel, so you can drive to/from the camp venue together as well.
