Getting to Camp
Camp begins on the bus! We will have bus transportation from Northern, Southern and Central California directly to our Camp in Dunlap, California. You should pack your child a lunch for the trip up to Camp and the Camp Committee will provide lunch for the return trip (there will be no lunch provided for the Central Valley bus). Bus departure locations are as follows: St. Mary - Costa Mesa, St. Leon - Burbank, St. Paul – Fresno, St. John - San Francisco.
Note: The busses from St. Mary, St. Paul and St. John are not guaranteed each week and are subject to cancellation due to low registration.
It is important that you be at your respective drop-off location 1 hour before the scheduled departure time to make sure that we can properly organize, pack and board the bus. If you are late, the bus will leave without you and there are no refunds! The cost to ride the bus to camp is $90.00 for those coming from Northern or Southern California and Orange County. The cost for those taking the bus from Central California is $40.00.

Directions from the North
As Highway 99 brings you to Fresno, look for exit signs to Kings Canyon National Park and Highway 180. Follow Highway 180 East about 40-50 miles until you pass the 4,000 ft. elevation sign and Snowline Lodge. See "SNOWLINE LODGE" below.
Directions from the South
Take Highway 5 North to Highway 99 North. Near Visalia take Highway 198, exit the first exit, Plaza Dr. and turn left. Continue on Plaza Dr. (Road 80/Alta Ave.) for about 23 miles until it dead ends at E. American Ave. Turn right onto E. American Dr. then turn left onto Cove Rd for about 4 miles. Then take Highway 180 and make a right. Continue on Highway 180 for about 20 miles (25 minutes) until you pass the 4,000 ft. elevation sign and Snowline Lodge. See "SNOWLINE LODGE" below.
About a mile past Snowline Lodge, there is a large brown road sign indicating "Armenian Church Camp" next to some mailboxes. Turn left and go up the hill. Follow the "Armenian Church Camp" signs into the camp, turning left at each "Y" in the road. It is approximately three miles (10 minutes) to camp from the turnoff at Highway 180.
