What is the last date of regular registration?
The earlier the better. To leverage the opportunity of discounted price, please book now
. Late Registration would be based upon availability of the tent.*
What should be appropriate attire for the camp?
Since major activities in camp would be based on yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, chanting, singing/listening bhajan, etc at the grassy campsite hence a proper attire for Yoga is highly recommended.
You may feel cold in early morning hence a winter garment, blanket, etc are also recommended.
Do you have any children activity?

Can we bring our own food?
We shall provide breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner for all attendees. However, if you have any constraints or special need, you may certainly bring your own. I would speak to organizing committee in this case at +1 (646)-653-4926
Is there a car parking available? Is it paid parking? Is it included in the fee? How far is the parking from the campsite?
Most of the car can be parked next to the campsite. You can easily carry stuff from car to the campsite and vice-versa by hand without much hassle. If parking near campsite is full, there are plenty car parking spots in close by locations. The car parking is included in the fee and no extra payment is needed. You can pack all necessary items in the car and bring to tent as and when needed.
How many families are allowed in the camp?
There is no limit for the number of families as long as we have available space. So early registration is better to get the confirmation.
How many cars per family is allowed in the campsite?
One car per family is good. If there are more, please co-ordinate with the organizer for the feasibility.

Maximum two tents are allowed per campsite. All the campsites are adjacent to each other in a circle, surrounding a common campground. Please refer picture of the location along with the tent location (circled below).
How many people will be in one tent?
One campsite capacity is 7-8 persons. Most of the tents will have the capacity of 10-12 persons to accommodate 7-8 person easily. In case of smaller tents, 2 tents will be set up at the same campsite.
what if I bring my own tent?
If you bring your own tent, you need to co-ordinate with organizer in advance at 646-653-4926. Please note that organizer may fit few people in your tent on need basis and will give you discount for that.
Can I bring firewood with me?
Firewood transportation is prohibited. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has issued a notice prohibiting the movement of all species of firewood into the State, effective immediately. This quarantine has been issued because of the threat posed by various wood-feeding insects, including Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), Asian Longhorned Beetle, Sirex Wood Wasp, and bark beetles that are considered threats to Pennsylvania’s forest, horticultural and recreational resources. PLEASE help us and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture by not transporting firewood into Pennsylvania. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
When is check-in and check-out?
For the campsite, check-in is after 3 PM and check-out is at 11 AM.
