Cornell Cooperative Extension

615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca NY 14850

Program participants choosing to go on the road with traveling programs will meet each morning at Cornell Cooperative Extension (615 Willow Ave, Ithaca NY 14850). Camps requiring transportation to a different wilderness area each day will CCE between 9:00am-9:15am and again for pick up between 4:00pm-4:15pm.

From Ithaca, take Route 13 north past the Science Center, turn right on Dey Street, then immediately right on Willow Ave. The CCE parking lot will be on your left around the corner. It can be a bit of a challenge with lots of coming-and-going at CCE.

To help everyone navigate drop off and pick up, we ask that you use the following system in the morning and afternoon:


Feel free to circle through the CCE lot if you’re simply letting your child or children in or out of the vehicle. An instructor will be on hand near the CCE garden to receive them in the morning and guide them to your vehicle in the afternoon.

NEED TO PARK to deal with gear, discuss something with an instructor or another parent?
Please park along the side streets. Dey Street is usually the easiest to access and park on.
There will be an instructor near the CCE garden gate on Dey St. to receive kids in the morning or send kids to you in the afternoon. We appreciate your help in keeping the CCE parking lot safe and accessible for all the folks that come through!
