Schedule and transportation
Check-in on Sunday
Check in at Van Peursem Hall upon arriving for camp. (Campus maps will be sent to accepted applicants.) If you are flying, make your travel plans to arrive at and depart from the nearest regional airport, which is Sioux Gateway Airport (SUX), approximately one hour from Orange City in Sioux City, Iowa (not Sioux Falls, South Dakota). Commuter flights connect to Sioux City, Iowa, through the commuter flight hub in Chicago, IL.
Limited shuttle service from/to the Sioux Gateway Airport in Sioux City, Iowa, will be provided on the Sunday before camp begins and the Friday or Saturday after camp ends. You’ll need to provide your own transportation if you’re arriving or departing from other regional airports (for example: Sioux Falls, SD).
