Transportation

Bus transportation is included in camp tuition.  Campers travel in 16, 20 or 24 passenger yellow school buses.  Each bus driver has Commercial Driver’s License with a Passenger and School Bus Endorsements. Each bus has a riding counselor to supervise campers during the bus route.  All campers wear seat belts.  For the 3 and 4-year old half day program, transportation to camp is included in their tution; however, a parent or guardian must pick up these campers at 12:30 pm.

Camp Riverbend tuition includes either bus service or a place in our extended day program.  If you want to use both (for example, bus service in the morning and extended day in the afternoon), there is an additional fee per child of $300 for 6 or 7 weeks, $200 for 4 or 5 weeks, and $100 for 2 or 3 weeks.
