We provide transportation to and from camp throughout most of our service area. Our most popular towns are served by one or more centralized stops. We will assess a $50 fee per week per child to access our transportation network.

The “Day Transportation Form” which allows you to sign up for transportation and choose your stops will be available in CampMinder after we have confirmed arrangements with the organizations that host the stop locations. We will send out an announcement to all registered families at that time.

Below is a list of our anticipated bus stops and times. This is subject to change as summer gets closer and we fine-tune the routes to meet the needs of folks who have signed up. If you require transportation and none of these stops will meet yours needs, please reach out to us and we will try to accommodate you.

How are campers transported?

A trusted local bus company provides professional, state licensed school bus drivers. Campers are transported in full-sized yellow school buses. We operate 3-4 buses, transporting campers from most areas within 30 miles of camp. We also own 3 vans, driven by select members of our camp staff who are specially trained and supervised.

Can I choose a different stop for pick-up and drop-off? Or different stops on different days?

Yes. We have transportation software that allows great flexibility and enables us to be sure that your camper(s) board the correct bus each morning and afternoon. We print a new bus list for every run. Its best to give us a day’s notice, but we can manage with less. To make an afternoon change in the same day, or for a change for the next morning, we’d like to hear from you before 3:00 p.m. to best give us a day’s notice, but we can manage with less.

Do you have bus monitors?

Yes. A camp staff member (occasionally 2) monitors behavior on the bus, and to be sure that campers are released properly at the appropriate bus stop. Staff members will cross the road with campers whenever campers need to cross. Buses use the same safety/warning lights that they use during the school year. In addition, many of our staff ride our buses to work. They are always on duty when in the presence of our campers, even when they are not the designated bus counselor.

Do you offer door-to-door pick-ups?

We are no longer able to provide door-to-door transportation. The post-pandemic added cost of transporting campers dictates that we must run our busses on the most efficient routes possible.

What happens if I am late to meet the bus in the afternoon?

Unless you have signed a form giving your camper(s) permission to wait for you alone, the camper will not be left at the bus stop. The bus counselor will wait for 2 minutes, and then call the camp to let us know they are continuing on their route with the camper on board. We will try to reach you, and you will probably be calling us, as well. When we are in communication, we will creatively hook you up with your camper. Sometimes it means your having to drive to the end of the route. More often than not, we can make a connection at a subsequent stop, or have the bus bring the camper back to your location when the route is completed. In the rare case that we have not heard from you by the end of the route, the bus will bring the camper back to camp and we will continue to try to reach you or someone you have indicated as an emergency contact.

How are bus stops determined?

Many campers board the bus as early as 8:00 am, so we choose just a stop or two in each town to reduce travel time. As the buses near camp, we adjust the routes according to enrollment in each individual session. Some buses are full before they enter our local radius and they come straight to camp with no local stops. Also, our camp vans offer us more flexibility, allowing us to sometimes serve families in outlying tows with smaller camper populations.
