Arrivals: The Proctor Institute begins on Monday, July 16th. The following information may help you plan your arrival time accordingly:
Departures: The last day of the Proctor Institute is Friday, July 20. The final day includes a Children and Justice plenary session, a Charge from Marian Wright Edelman, and the Closing Celebration of Worship and Commitment which will culminate with a presentation by the children of participants who are enrolled in the Proctor Institute Freedom School. The Proctor Institute will end at 11:30 a.m.
Allow at least two hours from your CDF Haley Farm departure until your flight’s departure time (to provide time for the shuttle ride to the airport and the recommended hour for check-in). We encourage you to schedule a flight that departs after 1:30 p.m. which will allow you to remain through the conclusion of the Proctor Institute at 11:30 a.m. You won’t want to miss this special culmination of the week.
