IF ARRIVING BY CAR
If you are traveling in your personal vehicle, please plan to arrive at the Melwood Retreat and Recreation Center between the hours of 3:00pm and 4:30pm. This will give you plenty of time to get settled before the Cycle begins.
IF ARRIVING BY AIR
Your itinerary will arrive directly from Melwood via e-mail, typically at least one week in advance of your departure. Please check it over carefully and ensure that you arrive at the airport at least an hour prior to your flight (2 hours for Hawaii due to the Department of Agriculture requirements, and 2 hours early for any other OCONUS departure).You will receive a second e-mail, no later than 24 hours before your flight, with the contact information of the driver who will be meeting you at the airport.
Upon arrival you must check in at the main administration building and we will help you transport your luggage to your assigned room. You will be asked to park your vehicle at the main lot for the duration of your stay and we will ask you to leave your keys, which will be secured at that location. Should you need access to your vehicle over the course of the week, an Operation: Tohidu Mentor will be glad to assist you.
Please understand that it is Melwood policy that our participants are responsible for their conduct while traveling to and from the retreat center.
On your arrival day, if you need to reach someone for assistance please telephone Michaela Fralen at 301.599.2735
On behalf of everyone at Operation: Tohidu, we wish you safe travels. We all look forward to your arrival.
