The bus ride was the best part according to my kids!! They LOVED learning and singing the songs (which they still are singing). The counselors were always punctual, as was the bus, and friendly both in the morning and in the afternoon after a long, hot day. The counselors were always very attentive to both [...]- Kelly P., Camp Kinneret Parent
We use the professional bus services of Atlantic Express. All buses are driven by professional school bus drivers and are equipped with seatbelts and air conditioning.
Our Rider Cup Bus Spirit Challenge is a friendly inter-bus competition that includes singing, bus decorating, and the composition of a unique new bus song for each bus each session.
We hire our staff to ride our buses to and from camp. Each bus’s staff team works together under the supervision of a Bus Captain. Most buses have anywhere from 4-6 bus counselors on board. Bus staff is in constant communication with the camp office.
More than 25 different conveniently located neighborhood meeting points. Stops are located in Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Encino, Hidden Hills, Newbury Park, Oak Park, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Tarzana, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Westlake Village and Woodland Hills.
On the Saturday prior to each session, bus counselors travel to each bus stop to meet campers and make personal connections. These meetings often provide that little extra peace of mind for new younger campers (and their parents) as they prepare for the first days of camp.
The bus is awesome–a perfect mix of safety and supervision with summer silliness and fun.- Stephanie W., Camp Kinneret Parent
Parents are welcome to drive their campers to and from camp. Camp staff are available during the following hours:
Drop off your camper from 8:15 – 9:00am
Pick up your camper from 3:50 – 4:45pm
Campers may be picked up or dropped off by their parents and ride the bus in the other direction. Simply sign up for bus transportation and let us know which direction you will be driving.
There is no additional charge for utilizing the extended hours and there is no discount available for parent provided transportation.
It makes you feel good being there.- Noah, Camp Kinneret Camper, Age 7
My son always has a summer of growing at Kinneret. My son equates summer with Camp Kinneret. He waits for the school year to be over so he can get on that bus and head back to the place he loves most.- Amanda S., Camp Kinneret Parent
Camp Kinneret is 1st class all the way! Top notch counselors and staff. Every detail is well planned and thought out with kids (and parents) in mind. The Sleepout is an incredible experience of growth and independence, even at 5 and 6 years old. Camp Kinneret philosophy and warmth is what keeps us coming back year after year.- Sharon B., Camp Kinneret Parent
The exceptional way that counselors and staff treat all children with respect and understanding. Also, the engaged involvement of group counselors and bus counselors helps parents feel safe to have children ride the bus, and especially to feel comfortable having kids at the beach, and other off-site spots. Positive behavior standards and conduct are not [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
Great experience for a first time camper... she's still talking about it and still sings some of the songs she learned at camp!- Azzie F., Camp Kinneret Parent
