Please review the tentative bus schedule for Junior Youth Group Kallah 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 is unpredictable in February, and in the past we have had significant delays due to snow and traffic in Chicago and Milwaukee. 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 Regional Teen Engagement Director Max Hendrix at nftyno@urj.org for a copy you can personalize.
