Many of our day camp families take advantage of our bus service to get their campers to our property safely each day. We offer school bus transport provided by Durham School Services.
Please see below for the towns that we pickup from and the arrival/drop off times. Please note, these are estimates so please allow for unforeseen circumstances such as traffic delays.
Camp staff will meet you at the bus meetup to welcome you and get your camper loaded on. They’ll double check that all of your paperwork has been submitted at the start of the session week and answer any questions before your camper boards the bus. Once everyone is on board the journey begins!
Campers of all ages will be there, and it’s a great opportunity for new campers to make their first friends. The ride is reasonably short even with stops along the way.
The best way to secure a spot on the camp bus for your chosen session(s) is to use our online registration platform. You can do this when signing up for your sessions, or at a later date. Please be aware, during the summer the cut off date for signing up for bussing online is the Wednesday on the week prior to your session. After that date, we ask that you call to reserve a place on the bus. A link to our online registration platform is located here
Every year our bus routes sell out, so we would advise to sign up as early as possible if you intend to use this service. The cost per week is $65 per camper for a roundtrip bus from any of the above listed routes.
Driving to camp is a great option for parents who want to see their campers off for the day and perhaps meet counselors, etc.
We are located around 10 minutes off of I-95, exit 64 (south), 69 (north) or I-9 new exit 7. Click here for google maps:
Bushy Hill Day Camp. Our street address is 253 Bushy Hill Rd, Deep River, CT.
We ask that all campers being driven to camp follow our signage, as some parts of our property operate a one way system.
For families driving, drop off time is between 8am - 9am, and pickup time is between 4pm - 5pm.
AM Care allows drop off at 7.30am, and PM Care allows pickup at up to 6pm.
