Santa Cruz Day Camp

Transportation

Riding the bus is an INCREDIBLE growth opportunity for kids. Waving goodbye and boarding the bus in the morning and returning 8 hours later builds independence. That is a key character trait we seek to develop. The bus is also a lot of fun. Our staff lead songs while the professional driver brings everyone safely to camp. It starts off the day with a big boost of energy that you don’t get otherwise! A few notes:

  • Stop times & routes are tentative. Any slight changes will be announced by email the week prior to each session.
  • Pick one stop per session.
  • All buses are equipped with seatbelts.

Driving your camper is permitted. It takes 15-20 minutes from Soquel Ave to reach camp. To minimize traffic, please carpool and let us know of approved adults to pick up your camper. And, please remember to drive 25mph on Glen Haven Road and 15mph on our roads. When dropping off or picking up, please stay in your car and wait to be directed by our staff as we keep traffic moving to load or unload campers.
