Transportation & Extended Care

Transportation & Extended Care


side-single-girls-red-tshirtsMountainside provides bus transportation to and from camp each day at no additional cost. A Bar-T staff member meets our families at each of our transportation sites and rides the bus to and from camp to help ensure our camper’s safety. Bar-T staff will arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled bus departure to check our campers in and answer any questions parents may have. We ask that our parents remain on site until after the bus has departed to help ensure everyone’s safety. Our staff will help make sure that our campers reach their group with a smile on their face each morning and will remain at the transportation site each afternoon until all campers have been picked up.

Below you can find the transportation locations for 2017. We are currently working on locations for 2018, but anticipate them to be very similar to this past year.
