We also have multiple buses that service Howard County. If you live in Howard County, we’re closer than you think! The average ride time from Howard County to camp is the SAME as a Baltimore County stop.
Our close proximity to many population centers means a reasonable riding time for our campers. In addition to the many staff who are aboard as passengers, two special counselors ride each bus to take roll, guide the driver on the route, monitor street crossing, help the campers get on and off the bus, and provide continuous supervision. These special bus counselors also make the bus ride enjoyable by leading singing and games along the way. Our buses are in constant communication with the bus company and the camp via radios and phones. We make our bus routes as efficient as possible by rerouting buses each summer. Also, some campers in regular transportation areas may have corner pick-ups/drop-offs, because it is often not practical to send buses down dead-ends and long courts.
The exact locations of these centralized points, however, are not determined until our registration is complete. We locate the stops where they will be the most convenient and helpful to the greatest number of our camper families.
In past summers, our Howard County bus stops included: River Hill Village Center, Dorsey Search Village Center, Rockburn Park Center, Walmart on North Ridge Road, Waverly Village Center, Pointers Run Elementary, The Village of King’s Contrivance, and Long Gate Shopping Center. It is important to note that central stops can change every summer and are based on enrollment and where campers are more concentrated in population.
