We provide you a free service to GPS track the location of your campers bus!  Prior to the start of camp, you will be sent instructions on how to follow the bus both morning an evening via your computer or mobile device!  A great service that parents love!

We will be using yellow school buses and vans for service. Vehicle type will depend on your area of pickup. Note: Not all vehicles are air conditioned.

Door to door pickup and drop, is not available in some cases. If door to door pickup is not available we use communal corner stops. You will be given your morning bus number and evening bus number as well as the name(s) of your bus counselor(s).

PLEASE NOTE IT WILL TAKE SEVERAL DAYS FOR BUS SERVICE TO GET A CONSISTENT SCHEDULE IN PLACE, SO PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME DURING THIS ADJUSTMENT PERIOD. PLEASE HAVE YOUR CAMPER READY VERY EARLY AND BE HOME EARLY TO GREET THEM UNTIL THE SCHEDULE IS CONSISTENT.

Once a regular schedule is in place, please have your camper ready approximately 5 10 min prior to your scheduled pick up each day. Once the bus arrives, it will wait about 3 minutes for a camper before departing. Once the bus leaves, it will not return on that morning to pick up your child.

If your child is not coming to camp on a particular day, you DO NOT NEED TO CALL THE CAMP OFFICE. This is a change from previous years and is being implemented by the bus company. However, please keep in mind that you will need to have your child ready as stated above. If your child will not need bus service home on a particular day, you must call the camp office before 3:00 PM to let us know so as to not put your camper on the bus.

In the evening drop off, please make sure to have someone waiting to receive your camper. If no one is there to greet them, the bus will wait about 3 min before leaving for the next stop and your camper will have to remain on the bus for the duration of the run before being returned to the camp office where they will have to be picked up.

Mill Basin Day Camp bus counselor(s) will be on each bus for morning pick up and evening drop off. Please introduce yourself to them. Their responsibilities include bus attendance, safety and supervision. All Pre-School campers will be seat belted in. Someone will need to hand your child off to the bus counselor and/or to receive your child off the bus each day. A bus counselor cannot and will not leave the bus to escort campers across the street or into homes or buildings. This is done to ensure the safety of the campers remaining on the bus. There are no exceptions to this rule.

If your camper has special requirements for bus transportation or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the camp office so we can pass the information on to the bus company.

As always, please feel free to call the camp anytime if you have questions. See You Soon!

Bus Information

If Door to door pickup is not available in some areas you will be notified where to meet the bus.

However, we suggest the following: No matter what time(s) you are given, it would be a wise idea to have your camper ready as early as possible for the first few days. We suggest being ready around 7:00 am in the morning and 4:30 pm in the afternoon. This way you will be able to accurately know what time the bus will arrive daily.
