Please review the tentative bus schedule for Hag/Mac for tentative arrival and departure information. Locations are dependent on registration. Final bus stop information will be determined and sent in pre-event emails 1-2 weeks before the event. The cost to ride the bus is included in the event fee and you will be asked to choose a stop during registration.

We know that these times are early and require teens to leave school before the end of the day on Friday. Weather and traffic are unpredictable, and in the past we have had significant delays due to both. In order to avoid these issues, we have the bus leave earlier in the day. If you need a letter excusing your teen from school for religious purposes so they won’t receive an unexcused absence, please email Senior Regional Director Amanda Wachstein at for a copy you can personalize.
