We do not provide transportation directly to/from the airport. You must purchase a VanGalder shuttle bus ticket from the airport to Rockford/Beloit area. Once at our designated VanGalder bus stop, we will pick you up and bring you to the camp school. We will also return you to the same bus stop for your departure on Sunday.
VanGalder Bus Company runs from the Chicago airports up to the Rockford area hourly. You can pre-purchase your round trip bus ticket online prior to your arrival OR you may purchase your ticket once on the bus. Each camp “may” have a different stop, so be sure to pay attention to the information you receive or read on the website as to where the camp bus stop is for each camp. You may want to check VanGalder’s Bus schedule as you’re making your flight arrangements so that you can make the two work together.
If you are under 18 years or under and traveling on the VanGalder bus, you should download this VanGalder permission slip form and keep with you for your trips on the bus. They may or may not request to see it.
