Arrival Guidelines

If at all possible, aim to arrive at the San Jose Airport during the timeframes listed below. Allow at least two hours from your landing time to get to the Mount Hermon Conference Center

Wednesday
Pre-conference Clinic

Schedule flights that arrive in San Jose on Wednesday between noon and 3:00pm. Pre-conference Clinic begins with 6:00pm dinner.

Thursday
Early Arrivals & Faculty

Schedule flights that arrive in San Jose on Thursday between 10:00am and 3:00pm.

Friday
Writers Conference

Schedule flights to arrive in San Jose on Friday between 8:00 and 10:15am. Conference begins with lunch at 12:15pm.

If you are coming in later than the above times, you may call a Lyft or Uber. This is a less expensive option than renting a car or staying in San Jose overnight.

Where do I go once I arrive at the San Jose Airport?

Collect your checked bags, then look for someone in the baggage claim area holding a Mount Hermon sign. This person will direct you to the Mount Hermon shuttle area. 

NOTE: We do our best to get everyone to the conference center as promptly as possible. However, you may need to wait a short time until we have enough passengers to fill a shuttle. If you would rather not wait for a shuttle, you may call a Lyft or Uber. However, your shuttle reservation payment will not be refunded.

Departure Guidelines

Mount Hermon shuttle service will run on Tuesday only, starting at 8:00am. Last shuttle leaves at 12:00noon.

Check-out time is 9:00am, but you may leave your luggage in secure places on the conference grounds until near your shuttle departure time.

If at all possible, schedule your return flight to depart from the San Jose Airport no earlier than 10:30am.

Allow at least two hours to get from the Mount Hermon Conference Center to the airport.
