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

Our family cannot say enough good things about Camp Kinneret! Both of my boys go there and have been since they were 5 (they are now 9 and 7) and count down the minutes until summer is here and they can board their favorite yellow buses! The staff is absolutely amazing … everyone from the [...]- Felicia G., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
Camp Kinneret is a safe and warm environment for a child to explore new activities and friendships. The administration has a very high standard for safety and their staffing and the kids have a blast and learn how to be a more spirited version of themselves. It's a joy to watch them light up inside -- and they don't even notice how filthy they are at the end of a good, hard day at camp!- Melissa M., Camp Kinneret Parent
After trying several other local camps over the last few summers and having mediocre experiences at best, my 7 year old son was hesitant to try Camp Kinneret. But from the very first day, he loved it and could not wait to go back that week. The counselors made him feel so comfortable from the very first moment he arrived at the camp. He made great friends, and had the most amazing summer, filled with activities that he loved and memories that will last a lifetime. He literally begged me to let him go back to Kinneret again next year!- Renee N., Camp Kinneret Parent
Look no further for an amazing summer camp for your kids! Camp Kinneret is the best! Both of my kids absolutely love it. The staff is amazing…everyone from Ryan the director to the counselors and bus drivers. They are fun, energetic, attentive, honest and great role models. My kids sing all summer long! Everything at [...]- Karen S., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
The biggest difference to other camps is the attention the leadership pays to providing real life activities and excellent staff. The counselors are true leaders and examples for the children. The kind of people we want our children to be with.- Camp Kinneret Parent
