Google map directions

The course begins early in the morning on the first day.  You are welcome to arrive the night before the course starts if this is more convenient for you.  Dinner will be available for folks arriving early.  

If you are a VOBS staff and are planning to arrive earlier than 1 night before the course begins or stay overnight after the course ends, you must approve this early-arrival or late departure with the staffing director. If you are a non-VOBS staff please indicate your time of arrival to, Megan Thiele during the registration process.   

Plenty of parking is available at the base camp.  Follow signs to the main office building where you'll be asked to sign in at an un-staffed welcome table.  At this table, you'll also find your housing assignment and a map of the campus.  Feel free to park near your housing assignment while you unload but then move your car to the long-term parking lot.  

For VOBS Staff: If you need a ride to VOBS or would be willing to offer a ride to someone, please post your needs or availability on the staff ride board on the Golden Chair.  All VOBS staff have access to this community forum.  If you have questions about accessing this resource, please contact the staffing director.
