Summer Camp Transportation - Camp Robin Hood Buses!

We take Camp Bussing Seriously

We are committed to a SAFE, FUN and EFFICIENT summer camp transportation.
Why? Because we think the drive is worth it.

Camp Robin Hood Really Does Start on our Buses!

Our dedicated transportation team works continuously to improve our bus experience, for campers AND parents. From responsible bus counsellors, to bus spirit, to our sophisticated bus route software we take our camp buses seriously.

Choose the Summer Camp Transportation Option that is Right for You!

Door to door pick up and neighborhood pick up locations, allow families to choose what works for them based on their needs and their budget. Of course driving your camper to camp on your own is always an option too.
Once your decision is made; to add neighborhood pick up, simply add $120 per session per camper. To add door-to-door, add $250 per session for each camper. And now, we are offering sibling discounts for transportation! Your second child taking the bus receives a 5% discount and your third child 10%!

SAFE

We are thrilled to be working with Landmark Bus Lines. We appreciate their constant commitment to camper safety and open communication with our Robin Hood transportation team. Our pre-summer bus driver meeting allows the professional drivers from Landmark to meet our team and receive training on all aspects of Robin Hood transportation. We also have a representative from Landmark on-site daily to help facilitate communication between camp and our bus drivers. Every Robin Hood bus has dedicated staff to keep our campers safe, happy and engaged during every bus ride. Their presence allows our drivers to focus on their job so our staff can interact with our campers. We have also developed systems to allow for the safe transfer of campers to their designated family member at the end of the day.

I love the camp bus. We have so much fun, we sing and play games with our bus counsellor and I get to talk to my bus friends before we even get to camp.

FUN

Our famous themed camp buses are a great example of the fun on the bus! Campers participate in a variety of activities and games, learn cheers and help to create decorations that correspond to the theme of the day. Our Bus Themes Calendar (published in June) helps families prepare for our twice-weekly dress-up days, while our Bus Counsellors (staff supervisors) work hard to surprise campers with special surprise themes on the other days. Why all the effort? Well because they are competing for the prestigious Bus Challenge Cup! A fun highlight of the summer for everyone. The 2020 Bus Themes Calendar will be posted in June of 2020, however you can view our 2019 Bus Themes Calendar here for a sample of what you might see in 2020.

EFFICIENT

Our routes are designed so that the majority of campers are picked up between 8:00 AM and 8:30 AM (in the morning) and dropped off between 4:30 PM and 5:15 PM (in the afternoon). Each afternoon our buses depart at 4:00 PM.

 Our Transportation Director Robin Perlmutter and Larry Bell, Camp Robin Hood’s founder, , are camps “in-house” bus/transportation experts. Using our proprietary software known as “LARRY” (a Legendary Approach to Reliable Routing for Youth) we create routes and constantly monitor (via GPS) all of our buses. We use the 407 Toll Highway which makes travel to camp fast and mostly traffic-free.

As you choose your transportation choice, for Summer 2020, we have designed 19 exclusive neighborhood routes which incorporate over 40 popular locations in our pick up area! With a maximum of 4 neighborhood stops, it is straight to camp for a day of fun and spirit. The same for the way home.

Please Note: With the increasing traffic and summer construction throughout the GTA, our transportation team continually monitor and assess our routes to find the most efficient way to and from camp. We design routes to have a minimal amount of stops and still maximize capacity. With the addition of subways, road fixes and residential construction, realistic expectations of timing of bus routes are necessary to get your children to our beautiful country setting. But, we promise, the fun starts on our camp buses!
