Central Phoenix – All Camps
Central United Methodist Church
1875 N Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004
We offer bus transportation to and from our northern camps (Shadow Rim, Camp Maripai, and Willow Springs), and recommend parent/guardians send their campers on the bus to help reduce congestion at our facilities. This gives campers a chance to meet other campers and get acquainted before they arrive. Buses are air conditioned, equipped with bathrooms, and are supervised by bus chaperones. We will reduce the capacity on the buses in 2021 due to COVID-19 policies. Campers, bus chaperones, and the driver wear masks during transportation.
Reservations must be made in advance. It’s easiest to purchase bus transportation while reserving your camper’s session. The cost is $35 one way or $70 round trip. To add this service closer to your camper’s session date, contact Customer Care at 602-452-7030 or email@example.com. If you do not indicate that you wanted your camper to ride the bus upon registration or have not contacted us via phone, or email, your camper is not registered to take the bus.
See general logistics below. A more detailed confirmation packet with maps, directions, COVID-19 and other safety procedures will be sent to bus riders one week before the session starts.
Call 602-452-7030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is NOT possible to plan for someone to stay with your camper beyond the bus check-out time. If a change occurs and buses will not be returning to Phoenix on time, we will make every attempt (via email and phone) to contact you and be present at bus stop to answer questions.
We are always looking for volunteers to chaperone our buses. If your camper rides the bus and you volunteer as a chaperone, they can ride for no cost! You must register and pay for bus transportation in advance and a bus refund will be issued after the trip is completed. All chaperones will start the journey from our Central Phoenix stop. Official confirmation will be emailed the week before the trip.
You're welcome to volunteer for trips even though your camper is not attending a session. We’d love your help! Reimbursements will ONLY be given to those who have reserved a spot. Reimbursements will be processed and returned to the card used after the trip is completed – amount will not exceed amount of bus trips per girl.
