Door-to-door bus service is available for Highland Park residents, providing convenience for you and the highest quality camp experience for your children.
Busing is no longer available for any camps EXCEPT Crew Camp. In lieu of home pick up/drop off, we are offering Before and After Camp Care with enhanced hours.
Our convenient door-to-door bus service only picks up campers participating in Crew Camp from their homes, delivers them to camp, and brings them home at the end of the day. Campers are greeted and supervised by the bus driver and camp staff for the duration of each trip. Campers must be escorted to and from the bus stop (which will be as close to the camper’s home as feasible) by a parent or authorized adult, with no exceptions. Campers must be picked up and dropped off at their permanent Highland Park address Monday-Friday.
Parents are responsible for ensuring their child’s safety while walking to and from the bus at pick-up and drop-off.
Please make arrangements in the morning and afternoon to meet and supervise your children at the stop.
Park District camps use the same school buses as School District 112. Backpacks are issued on the first day of camp to identify Park District riders.
Only Park District campers who are registered for bus service may ride the bus. Campers not registered for bus service may not ride the bus home with friends. Campers registered for bus service may not ride a different bus home with friends for any reason.
All buses are equipped with safety belts, receive regular safety inspections, and are air-conditioned.
For safety and accessibility purposes, some addresses may require a nearby alternative pick-up location. If this is the case, the Park District will notify you.
Camp routes are approximately 45 minutes (at maximum) in length to accommodate all riders.
Campers may not be picked up or dropped off at businesses or organizations other than their home address. No exceptions.
Bus registration is available only for Crew campers riding the bus in the morning and afternoon. No exceptions.
Registration for Crew Camp bus service may not be combined with Before & After Camp.
