A Note about Ride Shares:

Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America wants to make every effort to cut down the amount of automobile emissions traveling to and from the event. Four weeks, two weeks and one week before the event, we will e-mail a list of people who are looking for ride shares. We will list your name, e-mail, city/state of origin and number of spaces available in the vehicle. Ride share arrangements are your responsibility. Please fully agree to how costs will be shared and what room will be available in the vehicle prior to agreeing to the ride share. If you are looking for a ride share or would like more information about them, please contact Mindy at Also, please be sure to indicate this information in the Travel Information section when you register.

Traveling by Airplane:

We will be using Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington DC as the main point for arrivals and departures. However, there are options for anyone wishing to fly into or out of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) or Baltimore Washington Airport (BWI). Details are below. Please be sure to read the limitations on not flying into our primary location.

Dulles International Airport (IAD) – Primary Airport

Plan to meet the Mosaic Shuttle at Dulles Airport (IAD) at 2:15 pm on Thursday, September 1st. When booking your flight, please allow enough time to pick up your luggage and get through the terminal. We will meet in the baggage claim area between baggage carousels #2 & #3. (This location has plenty of seating, and is near restrooms, food, and exits.) Click here to see a partial airport map showing where we will meet.

The Mosaic Shuttle will arrive at Dulles Airport (IAD) after 12:30 pm on Monday, September 5th. To be safe, you should book your flight to depart after 2:30 pm from Dulles Airport.

Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)

If you are flying into or out of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and want to take the Mosaic Shuttle to or from camp, take the Metro Blue Line directly out of the airport towards Largo Town Center Metro Station, then switch to the Orange Line at Rosslyn Metro Station and take it to the end (Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro Station). Allow about an hour to get between the airport and Vienna/Fairfax Metro Station. The Mosaic Shuttle will pick you up at the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro Station promptly at 2:00 pm. Sorry, we WILL NOT wait for you, so be on time!!!

Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI)

Rick Dronsky has volunteered to drive a Mosaic Shuttle to pick up anyone who wants to fly into Baltimore Washington International Airport. You need to be at the baggage claim by 2:15pm on Thursday September 1st to meet up with Rick.

Please Note:

  1. Rick will be using the Shuttle for the Post-trip. Unless you are going on the Post-trip, YOU will be responsible for finding a ride back to BWI. Mosaic will make every effort to help you find a ride, but it will be your responsibility. If you are going on the Post-trip, you will have a ride back to BWI airport by way of the Shuttle.
  2. The Mosaic Shuttle coming from BWI will stop at Dulles Airport on the way to the camp to pick up any arrivals, then travel on to the camp. Total travel time to the camp is approximately 3 hours without traffic, which is approximately 1 hour more than going to Dulles airport.

Mosaic Shuttle

There are several options for using the Shuttle:

  • If you are participating in the Pre-trip but not the Post-trip and would like to take the Shuttle from camp to the airport on Sep. 5, then the price will be $20 for the one-way trip. The Shuttle (or ride share) from Pre-trip to camp on Sep. 1 is included with the Pre-trip.
  • If you would like to take the Shuttle from BWI to camp on Sep. 1, then the cost will be $20 for the one-way trip. Please note that if you select this option and are not participating in the Post-trip, then you will be responsible for getting back to BWI on Sep. 5. For Post-trip participants, the Shuttle to BWI on Sep. 7th is included with the Post-trip if you have paid for the round trip shuttle.
  • If you are flying one way and doing either the pretrip or post trip, you must pay for the one-way shuttle.
  • If you are flying in and flying out and taking the Mosaic shuttle or are meeting the shuttle to and from the Metro station, you must pay for the round trip shuttle.
  • Anyone else who wants to take the Shuttle must pay the round-trip cost of $40. There will be no refunds for one-way trips.
