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

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.
Our bus stops & times vary slightly by session and are determined by enrollment. Detailed transportation information for 2016 will be available in December. Feel free to consult the map below to see stop locations from 2015; while these locations may be subject to change, our 2015 map will present a reasonably accurate picture of the areas we serve.
From the second he woke up on camp days to the second he came home, he was singing Camp Kinneret songs. I've never seen my son happier. He was terribly sad to say goodbye to his counselors. He still talks about the Lemonade tower!! Most memorable summer ever!- Stacy F., 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
We are so delighted to have found Camp Kinneret. With over 50 years of experience they have really figured out how to give children a memorable summer experience. Parents don’t have to worry because they know their children will be safe, have fun, learn a lot, gain muscle, confidence and friends.- Kimberly D., Camp Kinneret Parent
Camp Kinneret has provided wonderful experiences for my children for many, many years. The site and activities are fun, but it’s the quality of the counselors that make the experience what it is each summer. The traditional “feel” and camp songs are wholesome, just like when us parents were kids. I can’t recommend highly enough.- Jeff S., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
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
