“What are you talking about!? I love the bus! It’s like a magic portal to the best place on earth!”

There are several options for Kingswood campers to get to and from camp for 2023. We will provide bus services from the New York, Boston, and Portland areas, and a chaperoned flight option from Florida. There is a $200 round-trip transportation fee for all campers that will be added to your balance in your CampInTouch account upon completion of the Transportation Form. This transportation fee includes all bussing during the camp session, and is the same charge regardless of whether a camper flies, drives or is picked up at camp. Drop-off at camp is not permitted.

Our primary drop-off location is the Jewish Community Day School in Watertown, MA. From there, campers ride on buses by age-group, meeting other kids and counselors from their unit before arriving to camp. From all other airport and city camper departure locations campers will ride to camp on one bus with campers of mixed grades.

Please complete the Camper Transportation Form available in your CampInTouch account, and return it to us by May 1, 2023.

At the end of the session, parents are asked to be at their camper’s return destination with time to be parked and waiting for the bus. Campers will only be released to a parent or guardian camp has had previous contact with. If a family requires pick up by a different adult, the request must be made in writing. Prior approval with photo ID is required one week before the pick-up date.
