School is out for summer, and that means summer camps are in session! Whether you offer a week long sleep away camp, a day time theme camp or a day camp that happens over a few days, you no doubt have to transport all the kids at some point. Whether it’s for field trips, morning and afternoon transportation back to their parents or to head out of town for sleepaway camp, moving a large group of kids from one place to another is sure to come with some challenges. When looking for the best way to transport a group of kids, you may have considered many options… but was a school bus one of them?!
School buses are the perfect solution for any kind of summer camp trip
School buses are perfect for day trips
Are you planning to take the kids for a day trip to a waterpark, nature reserve or somewhere else for a fun day time field trip? A school bus is the perfect way to transport the kids safely and on time. With enough room for all the kids and camp leaders, school buses are already adept at transporting kids. And since there’s no school in session, you’ll have no problem booking one to join you for your day trip!
Transporting kids to overnight camp
For overnight camps it is often easier (and part of the fun) to have parents drop their kids off at a central location where they can hop on a bus to head to where they will be spending the week. Whether the location requires an out of town road trip to get there or if there just isn’t that much parking on site, providing a school bus for transportation allows for the fun to start the minute the kids arrive in the morning. Boarding a school bus is bound to make the goodbyes easier too, since it will feel similar to the days when kids boarded the bus for a quick day at school.
Heading to a camp site that is out of town
Out of town summer camps might prove difficult to coordinate drops offs and pick ups, so it is often easier to arrange a meeting point in town. Having a central meeting point with a bus waiting to bring all the kids to summer camp simplifies the process for everyone, and adds to the adventure for campers.
Solve your transportation need
with a school bus
Whether your group is small and only needs a small bus or if it’s large enough to need a full-size scholar hauler, there is a school bus to suit your needs. All of our buses come equipped with a trained driver who specializes in safety, so getting from point A to point B isn’t even a concern! With our drivers at the wheel all you have to worry about is facilitating fun, handing out snacks, and planning the rest of the camp day. Camp songs are so much fun when sung together on a school bus!
Getting to summer camp has never
Even with a day camp a school bus helps to eliminate the need for parents to bring their kids right to the camp steps by offering a central pick up and drop off zone where a school bus can meet the kids to take them the rest of the way. Hanging out on a school bus with a bunch of camp kids is the perfect way to kick off a day at camp!
Start the bonding early for an amazing summer camp experience
The minute campers’ step on the bus for their time away at summer camp, the bonds start to form. You can help facilitate that by putting together some fun camp songs and games that are designed to help kids get to know each other and make friends. After all, isn’t that what summer camp is all about?
