Summer Bus Information

For most summer camp programs, transportation is included with the fee. Please check the webpage for the program you are registering for to ensure transportation applies to your program, as transportation is not available from all locations for certain programs. 


Be Bus Wise

For your child's safety, when dropping off or picking up your child please be sure to let our staff person know. We want to ensure that your child is safely out of and into your hands. Ensure your child has been properly signed onto the bus in the morning and signed out from a staff member at the end of the day. Make your child aware of this routine.

If you wish to change your bus stop location, please call the office prior to the session start date as bus stop lists are prepared in advance.
