Thank you so much and we are truly sorry and appreciate your understanding.
Each bus will travel independently to our first stop on Monday evening and then into Houston the next day in an effort to be as efficient as possible with stops along the way. Once in Houston your bus will also transport your group to and from NRG Park for the Gathering each day. On our return trip we will drive straight through overnight to arrive home on July 2, 2018.
*Please note: If you are taking the synod bus, you must indicate on your ELCA Youth Gathering Registration you will be arriving in Houston on TUESDAY, JUNE 26 and you will need to include your hotel reservations for that night as well (hotel reservations are assigned in spring 2018 by ELCA Youth Gathering - you will contact the hotel directly once assigned).
- Bus Arrival: Tuesday, June 26- Bus Departure: Sunday, July 1- Charter Bus Questions: **Note, you as an individual congregation are NOT leasing these busses so these questions that pertain to bus company, contact information, etc. DO NOT APPLY to congregations taking the synod bus. We will NOT be subleasing the busses to the Gathering.- Gathering-provided Transportation Daily: No, we will use our own busses for daily transportation.
You will be asked at a later date to provide us with a rooming list from your congregation that includes names, ages and genders for all travelers.
Once booked, please submit a $150.00 per congregation deposit by March 1, 2018. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your deposit once received along with the remaining balance which is due no later than May 15, 2018.
