The Campbell Center is located in the rural community of Mt. Carroll, Illinois. Due to its location, it requires some extra effort to get to the campus. Participants who fly into Chicago’s O’Hare Airport should plan to book a ticket for the Van Galder Bus Line to the terminal Rockford, Illinois, where a shuttle driver from the Campbell Center will pick you up. Shuttle service must be arranged ahead of time through the Campbell Center. If you plan to rent a car, you should fly into the Quad-Cities Airport.
