Will my travel be reimbursed?
Money spent on buses or taxis to get to camp will be reimbursed upon your arrival to camp, but you must turn in those receipts.
Can I get my money exchanged?
You should exchange your money in the airport before you leave. It is tough to find places to exchange your money outside of NYC. Those arriving early to work pre-camp will be paid in cash (US dollars). We recommend that you purchase travelers checks which may be cashed at or nearby camp.
