Transportation

The shuttle bus goes were the demand is the greatest.

New stops are added and stops are discontinued each year.

After May 15th, no new stops will be added for any reason. All campers must be signed up in advance for this service.

AM Shuttle: No charge   PM Shuttle: $65 weekly per family at the same stop. $15.00 daily per child.  Parents may change drop off locations and pick up information only if we get a note in writing each day there is a change.

Routes begin at 7:00 AM. Campers must be on time; we cannot wait for late arrivals.

Buses are full size yellow school buses with the Safe Couch bus company. All busses are fully licensed and insured with seat belts.

Campers must be signed up for this service. No camper will be dropped off unless an adult listed on the pickup permission form is present to sign for the child.
