Your child’s camp experience begins the moment they step on to the bus

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 […]

We use the professional bus services of Mission School Transportation. All buses are driven by professional school bus drivers and are equipped with seatbelts and air conditioning.


Our Rider Cup Spirit Challenge is a friendly inter-bus competition that includes singing, bus decorating, and performing a unique new bus song for each bus each session.


We hire and train 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 are 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, Moorpark, Oak Park, Sherman Oaks, Simi Valley, Studio City, Tarzana, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Westlake Village and Woodland Hills.

All transportation is provided at no additional charge. For a complete listing of bus stops and times, scroll down to the bottom of this page.

Meet your Bus Counselors!

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 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.

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...

What Parents & Campers Are Saying

What I see now is the cumulative effect of what Camp Kinneret has done for my kids all of these years. We are so grateful they have had this opportunity. Camp Kinneret has given them these experiences that we haven’t been able to as parents. They’ve had what we had as kids, but better, with this group of amazing people.

Camp Kinneret Parent

The counselors are placed very specifically depending on which age group they work best with. They are with the same counselor every day and get to build a relationship with them as well as see their counselors from the past. Having the same people year after year, Camp Kinneret has become like family for them.

Camp Kinneret Parent

I feel that Camp Kinneret works very hard finding the best people to work at the camp and then training them very closely so they can handle any situation. They also have always given my kids a counselor that was just right for them at the age they were. The counselors also helped my kids to learn how to deal with other kids in group situations – they’d come home and tell me how they had learned they had to take turns doing things so everyone had a chance and that it was important to be kind and helpful to the other kids.
