At last years prices, arriving Wednesday afternoon and departing Sunday morning, staying in the cheaper dorm, and eating every meal in the cafeteria, the cost would have been $259. The more expensive dorm was $10/night more, and there is also camping available on campus for $5/night.
I like to camp and the New York park system is very good with nice facilities. The state camp is just 1 mile from the assembly and the rates run from $13.00 to $23.00 depending if you need hook ups or not. There were many campers with the familiar wood/canvas boat on the roof of the car, truck or camper. Just walk around in the evening and stop by to discuss/admire
this fine old craft. If not a camper, go for the dorms which are still a bargain and the whole event will be remembered for a long time.
