Travel to Camp by Bus
The camp experience truly begins on the bus —getting to know other campers, staff, cheers, and songs— and that is why we prefer that you send your child to Camp by bus. Not only does taking the bus help campers transition into camp-mode, it also helps parents transition.
When the buses arrive at camp, all of the counselors are there to welcome each camper. Upon arrival, the counselors help each camper unpack and set up their beds. They also have special activities planned for the campers in the bunk as soon as they arrive to help them get to know each other and transition smoothly into camp.
FAQ for Bus Travel:
- Our buses depart for camp ON TIME. Please be at the designated location in your city at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure to check in. If you are late we will NOT hold the bus. You will need to make arrangements to drive to camp.
- Once a camper checks in, he/she will receive a name tag. Only campers with name tags can board the bus.
- Parents will not be permitted on the bus; campers will not be allowed off the bus once they board.
- The Campers will arrive at Camp in time for lunch, but please pack a dairy snack for the bus ride. The buses will not stop along the way. There are bathrooms on the bus.
- All campers will be checked for lice and temperatures upon arrival at camp.
They will then be directed to their cabins for staff to help them unpack and get settled.
- We will update parents when the buses arrive at camp on Opening Day.
- There are currently no buses for the Nitzanim campers that come and go during the middle of the session.
- Buses to and from camp are $40 each way for Houston and Dallas campers and $20 each way for Austin and San Antonio campers. When you fill out our transportation form and select the bus, we will charge your credit card on file for the bus fee.
