Can I arrive late or leave early? What is the refund policy?

Check-in for the retreat starts at 3:00 pm on Friday, outside of the auditorium. You will receive your room key, a goodie bag, and a copy of the program when you sign in.

Although we strongly encourage attendees to arrive between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm on Friday, we understand that travel schedules may be challenging during this time of year. If you arrive after 5:00 pm on Friday, you will need to stop by the Tuscarora Inn & Conference Center main lobby to check in for the event. They will have your registration information and room key to get you started. Whenever you must leave, please stop by the main lobby to drop off your room key.

Individual reservations that are cancelled at any point will forfeit a minimum deposit of $35 per person. All individual cancellations will be handled on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the conference center and their reservations staff.

How do I find a roommate?

We encourage women to ask at their congregation if anyone else is attending the retreat and looking for a roommate. Additionally, you can always invite a friend to attend the retreat and become your roommate.

If neither of these are possible, mail in your registration form and payment anyway and Tuscarora Inn & Conference Center will match you with a roommate. They will place you with other ladies in a room at the price you registered (or similar). At this women’s retreat, there are no cliques. We encourage everyone to meet as many women as possible, to share in the love of Yeshua. What better way to make new friends than by meeting someone as your roommate at this special event?

Is there public transportation to get to Tuscarora Inn?

Tuscarora Inn does not have any transportation options offered by the conference center as pick-up or drop-off to any airport, bus stations, or train stations. You are responsible for your own travel arrangements.

As a suggestions for traveling by bus from Manhattan, Martz Trailways bus departs Manhattan and stops at Stroudsburg/ Delaware Water Gap, PA. From this stop it's about 15 minutes by cab to Tuscarora. Below is the info to look up the bus and cab:

Martz Trailways (martztrailways.com1-800-432-8069 ; Delware Water Gap office 570-421-3040

The line from Manhattan to Stroudsburg/Delaware Water Gap, PA is the one suggested by Tuscarora.

Pocono Cab (570-424-2800) charges about $15 - $20 from Stroudsburg to Tuscarora.

WGM Transportation cab (570-223-9289) charges around $20 - $30.

In general, we advise attendees to ask their congregation for help with transportation especially if other women are attending the retreat.

What is the closest airport to the Retreat venue?

The closest airports are Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE), 3311 Airport Road, Allentown, PA 18109, and Newark International Airport (EWR), Brewster Road, Newark, NJ.  Car rentals are available at both airports to drive from there to Tuscarora Inn & Conference Center in Mt. Bethel, PA.

Can Beth Zion or Tuscarora help me figure out transportation, car pooling, etc?

For transportation arrangements, we recommend that you contact your congregation to coordinate carpools with other ladies attending. Neither the planning committee behind the Beth Zion Women's Retreat nor the staff at Tuscarora have the resources to arrange transportation.
