If the door to door service is not available, such as a dead-end street or where construction is ongoing, another location will be chosen and those families will be notified.

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 Pioneer 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.
Please note that there is no Early Morning Drop Off or Late Stay Pick Up when choosing to use bus service.
