Please send an email or note: if your camper is leaving early, if you are picking up your child at camp, or if someone else is picking up your child at camp or at their bus stop. Please give all notes to the bus counselor or bus driver — this is to protect your child.
In the AM, please plan to be at your child’s stop at least five minutes earlier than the posted time. If you are late in the morning or afternoon, and miss your bus, go to the next stop listed on the route. In the afternoon, the bus driver will wait at the last stop with your camper until you arrive. The bus driver will allow a 10-minute courtesy time after driving to the last stop in the afternoon. After the 10 minutes, there will be a $1.00 charge per minute. The driver will give you a copy of the bill for their time and the other copy will go to the office. Make checks payable to Kidcam Camps and pay within 24 hours.
*Note that routes, times, and order of stops may be modified throughout the summer to accommodate appropriate bus capacities. We will always contact the family to inform of any changes.
