Bus Details

Picking a Bus Stop:

Select your bus stop at the time of registration.  If no bus stop is indicated, we will not place your camper on a bus, and you will need to provide her transportation to and from camp.  The same bus stop must be used for morning and afternoon. Changes from one bus/stop to another are highly discouraged after June 1, not always possible, and will result in a $25 bus change fee if space on the bus is available and approved by the camp director.

Bus Times:

Bus times will be provided in the camper letter mailed home prior to the start of camp. Those times are best estimates, so please arrive early to allow time to check your camper on and off the bus.

Thursday/Friday Transportation:

No transportation will be provided Thursday evening or Friday morning. For those campers who choose not to overnight, parents will be responsible for transporting their daughters to and from camp at those times.

Bus Procedures:

Each camper must be signed in before riding the bus each morning. At the time of sign-in, you will be asked to list the name of the person who will be picking up the camper from the bus that day. When the camper arrives back at the bus stop in the afternoon, she will be released only to her parent or the person listed on the sign-out sheet. All persons picking up campers must show a photo ID at the time of pickup. If you need to make a change to this pick-up, you will need to call the camp before 2:00 that day. If the person assigned to pick up the camper is not waiting at the bus stop at the time the bus arrives, the camper will remain on the bus until the bus reaches the last stop where she will wait with the adult bus captain. Once all campers have exited the bus, the bus will not remain at the stop. Failure to pick your camper up on time will result in a late fee of $1.00 per minute for each minute that the bus captain must wait for you to arrive. Please arrange your daily plans carefully so that the system will run smoothly. This procedure is designed to ensure the safety of each camper.

Parent Driver Details

If your camper is not riding the bus, she will need to be dropped off and picked up at camp each day.

Drop-off Procedure:

Drop-off begins at 9:00. When you drop off your camper, you will need to park in the first parking lot, walk across the field to Patterson Hall (the brown building behind the flag pole), sign your daughter in on the clipboard by the door facing the flagpole, and list the name of the person who will be picking her up at the end of the day.

Pick-up procedure:

Pick-up is at 3:30, following the flag ceremony. Similar to the morning, you will park in the first parking lot, walk across the field, and come to Patterson Hall. Campers will be waiting on the porch. Families will come to the picnic table by the stairs facing the flag pole, show photo ID, and sign your camper out for the day.

Driving Safety:

The roads to Camp Sugar Hollow are narrow and windy. You will also cross two one-lane bridges as you get close to camp. Many runners and bicyclists share our love for this area and exercise on these roads. It is really important for our camp buses, camper families, and neighbors that you follow all speed limits and drive carefully. GPS and cell service is limited, so have driving directions ready before you head towards camp.  

 

Requesting a Change to Transportation Plans

June 1

On June 1, registration closes and all registration information is used to create unit rosters, bus lists, and parent driver lists. These documents total over 144 pages of color copies. Any requests for transportation changes after that date will result in a $25 paperwork processing fee and is subject to Director approval based on bus availability.

This fee is applicable for all changes, including:

  • Changing from one bus stop to another

  • Changing from bus to parent driver or vice versa

If your camper usually rides the bus, but is being picked up at camp one day (swim meet, family event, doctor’s appointment, etc.), please send in a note or call the camp office by 2:00 so that we can manually move your camper from the bus list to the parent driver list.
