Airport to and from Camp
We offer a pick up service between DFW Airport and Hoblitzelle Camp & Conference Center or the Courtyard by Marriott Midlothian at specific times on Thursday, October 19th of the retreat. We are unable to charge for this service because it may make us an unlicensed taxi service, but we will accept donations at the Retreat Office or Camp Store. We will charge $30.00 per person for a for-hire shuttle service on Monday morning to take students back to the airport. Sorry, but we do not offer shuttle service to Dallas Love Field Airport. See schedule and how to arrange for services at TBD. If you have not previously signed up for our shuttle, please contact our shuttle manager at TBD for options.
Hotel to Camp Transportation
We will offer shuttle bus transportation to and from the Courtyard by Marriott Midlothian at no charge for the four days. Sorry, but we do not provide transportation to any other area hotels. See schedule and how to use services at TBD. If you use the shuttle, help us defray the costs of providing this service by making a donation at the retreat booth.
Everyone on campus must register and wear a badge. If not taking classes, you will be charged a “guest fee” of $25.00. The fee permits you to be on the campus and also covers the cost of admission to the evening instructor concerts and sessions. A badge will be issued at check-in.
