Transportation

Getting to Camp

Your child’s camp experience begins the moment they step on to the bus. With that in mind, here’s some information about our bus transportation…

  • All transportation is provided at no additional charge.
  • We pick up at 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.
  • We use the professional bus services of Mission School Transportation. All buses are driven by professional school bus drivers and are equipped with seat belts and air conditioning.
  • The bus ride is fun! 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 4-8 bus counselors on board. Bus staff are in constant communication with the camp office.
  • To help campers feel prepared for their first day, we offer the opportunity to visit your bus stop and meet your bus staff prior to every summer.

Parent Provided Transportation / Extended Hours

Our extended hours are available at no additional charge. Parents are welcome to drive their campers to and from camp instead of riding the bus. Camp staff are available during the following hours:

  • Drop off your camper between 8:15 – 9:00am
  • Pick up your camper between 3:50 – 4:45pm

Campers may arrive via bus and be picked up at camp during extended hours or vice-versa.

If you are coming for a visit or to pick up your camper, please be sure to bring your ID. Visitors must check in with our greeter and they will ask for your ID. For directions to the site, click here.

Based on past enrollment trends we expect the following

*This stop may move to a different bus route and time during Session Two, which will be determined before the start of the session.

**This is a Session One only stop. Please select another stop if you are enrolling in Session Two only.

***This is a Session Two only stop. Please select another stop if you are enrolling in Session One only.

Extended Hours: Parent Pick-Up and Drop-Off at Camp
  • AM: 8:15 – 9:00
  • PM: 3:50 – 4:45

Final routes and times are determined by enrollment and are finalized at the beginning of June. On rare occasions, stop times may change by approximately 5-10 minutes and a stop location may be moved to a nearby location or assigned to a different bus.

Enrollment for each session varies resulting in slightly different routes for Session Two. The anticipated changes, based on recent summers, are listed below each affected stop. These changes are just estimates and it is possible that some changes not listed may need to be made. You will be notified when and if any changes are made that affect your family. Families enrolling for just Session Two should not select a stop designated as Session One only. Families enrolling in both sessions who select a Session One only stop for Session One will be asked to select a Session Two stop at a later date unless enrollment permit the continuation of their Session One only stop.
