Departures and Arrivals

On the end date of camp, buses arrive at the same location at about 4pm. Please see the bus table to see when you should arrive at the drop-off and pick up.


Please note, there is construction on Highway 17 this year, which may cause delays for the pickup at the end of camp. There will be a Pioneer Camp staff at the church ahead of the buses, with updated information if the bus is running late.
