GENERAL TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION
For us, even though we are thinking and planning for camp year-round, we mark the official beginning of the camp experience as soon as that first camper gets on the bus and don’t mark its end until all of our campers have arrived home safely. The bus ride is often a time for campers to make new friends and/or reacquaint with old ones. For reluctant or first time campers, the bus ride can often serve as a valuable “transition time”. Our skilled bus counsellors spend time with each of our campers on the bus to ensure that they are prepared and comfortable for their arrival at camp. Our mandate is to provide a safe, enjoyable, and efficient trip to and from camp for all of our campers. Our bus company, Coach Canada, is of the best in the business. For all of these reasons we encourage families to use our bus system even when it may seem more convenient to drive their camper to camp. Please find below, all the specific transportation information you will need to assist your camper in travelling to and from camp.
SPECIFIC TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION:
Completion of the Transportation form will ensure that there is adequate seating for your camper on the bus. It has been our experience that in any camping environment, when busses are delayed, discomfort is felt by both campers and parents. For this reason, we have made many efforts to keep the transportation process clear and understandable. The maps in this package, and our bag tag system are some examples of this. Computer printed labels indicating your camper’s name, unit, departure city, and arrival city have been placed on specifically coloured baggage tags. This detailed and lengthy process is necessary to ensure that your camper’s baggage arrives at the appropriate destination and is easy for you to find upon their return from camp. Particularly when there is more than one camper in a family, please ensure that the correct tags are placed on the appropriate bags:
ALL OTHERS: WHITE
