Onsite Accommodations

Staying onsite gives us the full experience of our US Festival, and many opportunities to meet and share experiences with our Kadampa family from around the United States.

In addition to KMC New York’s limited guest accommodations, many of the residential community vacate their rooms so that they can be offered to guests. For this reason, onsite accommodation is in high demand. In order to offer accommodation to those on the waiting list who otherwise might not be able to attend, full payment is required by June 5 for all onsite accommodations with the exception of camping or camper van. This is non-refundable unless we are able to resell your room. See Terms & Conditions for deposit and cancellation terms.

We regret we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 16 in onsite indoor accommodations for this event. 

Outdoor camping is available for children under the age of 16, provided their nominated responsible adult is camping too. Camping is $10 per night for children ages 4 to 15, and no charge for children 3 and under. Please be prepared for wet or cold weather!

Young adults can camp onsite, provided their nominated responsible adult is camping too. Young adults cannot be accommodated in shared room or dormitory accommodation. They may stay in twin or double accommodation if their nominated responsible adult is also sharing the room. 16 and 17 year olds are charged as adults.
