For Those Using Our Motorcoach Transportation

Safety Rules & Procedures:

Parents, please have campers at the pickup site at least 20-30 minutes prior to departure for loading. Since we need to be on time for the next pickup point, we cannot hold the bus for late arrivals. Please check-in with the camp chaperone in charge before boarding the bus. Once campers board the bus, they are not to disembark until they reach camp.

When picking up returning campers, please check-in with the bus chaperone and identify yourself before departing with your camper. Parents must notify the camp in writing or by email if someone other than a parent will be picking up a camper.

Please pack a lunch and beverage for the trip to camp. Please resist packing a lot of sweets and soda, as this generally adds up to “travel tummy”. All remaining food or drink items will be discarded upon arrival to camp. There is a bathroom on the bus. We will pack a lunch for the trip home.
A maximum of 2 bags per camper is allowed! (For example, a tote box or suitcase for clothes & a bag for sleeping bag & pillow.)

Do not send electronics such as an Ipod, DS or cell phone for the trip – there are movies on the motorcoach and 50 other campers to get to know. We will email you when the bus arrives at camp.
