bus information

The Lonehollow camp journey officially begins each summer when campers gather in Houston, Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio to board chartered buses bound for Lonehollow adventure. Payment is non-refundable four weeks prior to camp. Please be on time to your bus departure and make sure that you have all forms turned in and payments made so your bus check-in will go smoothly.  Please note that the bus will only wait for 15 minutes past the scheduled departure time for delayed campers.  Bus stop locations and camper bus stop arrival times are listed below:

Your specific bus itinerary along with numbered luggage tags will be mailed to you prior to the start of your session. Buses are pre-assigned based on camper grade and each camper’s luggage tags are numbered accordingly.  (Should you have a specific bus assignment need, please contact the office in advance of your scheduled departure and we will try to accommodate your request.) Once you arrive at the specified location, Lonehollow staff will greet you and help you with your luggage. Then, you can say your final goodbye and check in your camper. Upon check-in, we will show campers to their assigned bus and get them ready for the trip to camp. Please make sure every piece of your camper’s luggage and any carry-ons are clearly marked with first and last names AND that you have firmly attached the luggage tags we send you.

 

During their journey, campers watch camp videos, sing their favorite Lonehollow tunes, connect with old and new friends alike, and get prepared for the best summer ever!

 

what to bring on the bus

Campers should bring a sack lunch and drink for the bus ride.  A backpack is a great accessory to carry lunch, snacks, and anything else your camper will need on the bus. Campers are allowed to pack certain perishable and electronic items FOR THE BUS TRIP ONLY. These include cell phones, iPods with video playback, Wi-Fi enabled devices, tablets/e-readers, food and beverages. However, food and electronics will be collected by the bus chaperones upon arrival at camp.  Electronics will be stored in Headquarters and returned to parents on Closing Day at the camper check out table.  Please review the Camper Pledge to review our policy on electronics.
