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

When your kids come off the bus each day covered in dirt, disheveled and with the biggest smiles on their faces you know that that day was awesome. When they sing the camp songs at dinner and laugh uncontrollably at a memory that took place at Friendship Hill you know that Kinneret is the best [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
My children have spent their summers at Camp Kinneret since they were going into kindergarten. They have made friends, and built relationships with the counselors that are still close to our hearts. Going to camp feels like being at home for them. They absolutely love it.- Camp Kinneret Parent
Our kids started with Camp Kinneret because of my fond memories as a camper from when I was a child. They have been going to Camp Kinneret for years now and it’s made their summers so special and memorable. Camp Kinneret’s incredible staff is so attentive and of such high caliber that it truly makes [...]- Yael R., Camp Kinneret Parent
All I can say is that every year when school is out, they start asking “When do we get to go to Camp Kinneret?” They are more excited about that than anything else going on in their summer!- 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
