Please review the tentative bus schedule for Kolbo for tentative arrival and departure information. The cost to ride the bus is included in the event fee and you will be asked to choose a stop during registration. If you are interested in arriving and departing from different locations, please contact Logan Zinman at lzinman@urj.org for permission and to ensure there is space on the bus.

Please note the early departure times for the buses. During such a short weekend, it is important to ensure that our buses can arrive on time (before Chicago and Milwaukee rush hour) so we can maximize our time together and to ensure we provide ample time to get the teens to camp in as safe a manner as possible.

If you need a letter from NFTY to share with your school for a religious exemption for attendance purposes, please be in touch with Logan Zinman at lzinman@urj.org.
