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.

The buses are wonderful and getting to interact with some of the counselors every morning was great. Hearing all his stories and listening to all his crazy songs made me feel like a kid again...- Camp Kinneret Parent
In just a couple of weeks we already saw a change in our daughter. Her confidence and willingness to try new things improved, and she became more independent as a result. We were very happy with our Camp Kinneret experience!- Scott S., Camp Kinneret Parent
As parents, we love Kinneret too! We are always impressed with the quick, professional response any time we call. More importantly, the well-trained and gifted staff are ready for any situation, and you always know your kids are safe, happy, and enriched by a day of summer fun at Kinneret. The boys came off the [...]- Stephanie W., Camp Kinneret Parent
My daughter had the time of her life this past summer. She would step off of the bus filthy, exhausted, and excited to tell me all about her day -- which was exactly the sort of camp experience we were looking for!- Amanda W., Camp Kinneret Parent
Year after year, Camp Kinneret consistently offers a wonderful, safe and fun experience for my children. At the end of each camp day, they enthusiastically share about all of the exciting activities they did, friends they made, songs they sang and juice bars that they ate. At the close of the second session, they walk [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
