Transportation & Bus Routes

Green Acres School Summer Day Camp is accessible by carpool and bus. In our effort to reduce traffic in the neighborhood and comply with zoning requirements from the County Board of Zoning Appeals, the Board has implemented the following policy:
In the afternoon, all children need to be in a carpool of at least three campers, ride a bus, or attend PM Care. Regular bus service, PM Care and carpool are the only options. The only exception to this rule is for those families whose children by law must ride in a secure safety seat. In these cases we strongly recommend a carpool of at least two campers. All other families must utilize bus or carpool options. This carpool rule does not apply in the morning.

Bus transportation is provided to several close satellite locations in the mornings and the afternoons for a small additional charge. Extended bus service (for an additional fee) is provided on a group stop basis. A group stop is a stop where 5 or more campers are picked up at one convenient location. While most of our bus riders use the bus both ways, we will try to accommodate requests for one-way service. All bus transportation is offered on a space available basis.
