How many stops will there be on my child's bus route?
One or two, with the majority of routes only having one stop. We've found that having only one or two pick-up/drop off station per route reduces the tedium for campers, keeps them together as one egalitarian community for each drive and helps them arrive at camp fresh and ready for an adventurous day.

Will there be adequate supervision on the bus?
California law mandates special training for each bus driver. But we think, that person should be focused on one thing alone – driving. We have hired professional bus drivers to do just that for us and also that's why we staff each bus with a counselor or equivalent Cali Camp staffer. The fun, Bus Cup Challenge and Cali community starts the moment your child steps on the bus.
How does my child know which bus is their's?
On the first day of camp each camper receives a bus bracelet with their bus name. Every bus is represented by a different tree, and the counselors display the bus info at the end of the day, as well as the morning, so campers know which bus is theirs.
Counselors ride on each bus. And every counselor has a list of the campers assigned on that bus. Who assists my child getting on the right bus to come home?
The transportation director, camp director, team leaders and transportation staff are in the parking lot at the end of each day to assist any child that needs assistance.
Tell your child: No one leaves until every camper is on the right bus, we've taken roll, and a final and correct count from each driver is confirmed.
Every child is encouraged to seek help if they need it.
