*Please note these times are estimates. Please arrive early and be prepared to wait as needed. The shuttle will not wait for late arrivals and there will be no refunds for missing a shuttle.
*Pick-up times will vary, depending on SFO arrivals. If we have no SFO arrivals, our departure from near SFO will be 8am and Castro Valley will be at 8:30am. Confirmed times will be emailed out during the week prior to the camp.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I register for the Adventure Shuttle?
Select the Adventure Shuttle Add-On when registering or email us to add it to your existing booking. You will also need to complete the Yosemite Adventure Shuttle Registration Form (link).
Will there be somebody to meet my child when he/she arrives at the San Francisco International Airport? Will there be somebody to help check-in my child on Friday as well?
The Lasting Adventures staff member/driver will meet your child/participant in the bus area outside the Arrivals Terminal at SFO. Your child/participant should carry a cell phone with them to check in with you and with the driver when they get outside (please note, cell phones will be packed away during the hiking portion of their trip and will not be accessible). On Friday airport drop-offs, the shuttle will drop-off at the respective airline terminals and check-in areas.
Who does my child call/contact when he/she arrives at the airport?
Your child/participant will contact the shuttle driver when they’ve arrived. The driver’s telephone number will be shared with you 24-48 hours prior to the start of the trip. As needed, the number for Lasting Adventures is 1-800-513-8651. (This message line pings multiple members on our team.)
What if the scheduled flight arrives after 10 am?
Please contact us to see if we can make arrangements. In general, a flight arriving a few minutes after 10 am won’t cause much inconvenience, but because we have some trips hiking into the wilderness on the first day of the adventure, even minor delays may cause significant problems in getting trips on the trail.
Where can my child who is flying to you pick up lunch?
There will be a snack/lunch and restroom stop 1/2 way through the drive in Oakdale, California on the way to Yosemite.
If the Youth Program start time is earlier, wont this shuttle be late?
Technically yes, but it’s ok! We plan on the Adventure Shuttle arriving after all other participants, as this gives us time to get earlier arrivals checked in and fully set up. When the Adventure Shuttle arrives, we only need to get those participants who are arriving on the Adventure Shuttle set up with their groups before setting out on the adventure. Once your child arrives to Yosemite, we will also let you know.
When will I hear more updates and confirmed locations?
We will update this page occasionally as well we will be sending out final Adventure Shuttle specifics during the week prior to the camp.
What if I need to cancel the Adventure Shuttle?
No problem, just contact us ASAP by email. Outside of 60-days in advance, there is no cost. Between 60-days and 30-days in advance we will retain 50% of the cost, and within 30-days there is no refund.
What other options are there if we are not coming from the SF Bay Area?
See our Yosemite Transportation Options.
