Getting to Camp

Directions to VOM

(This map is for use by people attending the fiddle camp. We are sorry, but no visitors are permitted during the week while camp is in session.)

AIRPORT SHUTTLE VOM will provide a shuttle service between Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Camp Campbell for airline travelers who need a ride to and from camp. The shuttle will run only once on arrival and departure days as specified below. If you want to use the VOM shuttle, you must add the shuttle fee to your other camp fees when you pay your final bill, which will be mailed in April. If you cannot use the VOM shuttle we will try to assist you with other arrangements.

Check-in time at camp on August 25th is 4:00 p.m. Check-out time on September 2nd is no later than 10:00 a.m. VOM shuttle service has been arranged to meet these times.

Before camp the Transportation Coordinator will be in touch with all those who sign up for the shuttle.

FLIGHT BOOKING

Please book your arrival flight to land at SJC before 2:00 p.m. on Friday, August 25th.

If you plan to fly into San Francisco International (SFO), please book your flight to arrive before 12:00 noon.

Please book your return flight from SJC after 1:00 p.m., or from SFO, after 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 2nd, if at all possible. Travel time between SJC and camp is about 1 hour. For planning purposes, we suggest you allow an extra half hour, or more, to hedge against possible traffic tie-ups.

ARRIVAL

We’ll meet at the Baggage Claim area in Terminal B no later than 2:15 p.m. Look for someone holding a sign that says ‘VOM’ You might also look for a group with a bunch of fiddle and cello cases.

If you arrive at Terminal A, there is a free shuttle that will take you to Terminal B. Please give yourself a ten-minute cushion for this ride.

Call the Transportation Coordinator to let her know if you have missed a connection or if your flight has been delayed. We may be able to delay the VOM shuttle departure for a short time. We’ll wait for you at Terminal B if we’re expecting you, and have heard from you that you will be a little late. If delays cause you to miss our shuttle – and we know about it – we will have some alternative way to get you to camp. We won’t leave you stranded.

If you are unfamiliar with SJC, you can go to www.flysanjose.com and click on the “Maps and Directions” link.  You will see maps for both Terminals A and B, with airlines served and other facilities.  For your convenience and ready reference here is a diagram of Terminal B with indications for our meeting place and bus connection

SFO to SJC

If you will be arriving at SFO rather than SJC, here are several shuttle options you can use to travel between the two airports.

RETURN

Our bus will return you to the airport on Saturday, September 2nd, leaving Camp Campbell at 9:30 a.m. If, for some reason, you must book an early flight, please let us know as soon as possible so we can try to work out an alternative to our planned departure time from camp.

COST

Round trip for the VOM shuttle between SJC and VOM will cost approximately $50.00 per person, including driver’s tip. The cost will be a supplement, which you must add to your VOM final payment. You will be charged this amount even though you may only ride one way, because the bus company charges for the seat, whether it is occupied or not.

IF YOU MISS THE SHUTTLE

If your flight has been delayed and you arrive after the shuttle has left or you cannot make the shuttle, there are other ways to get to camp. Please see the separate TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES.pdf.
