The bus ride was the best part according to my kids!! They LOVED learning and singing the songs (which they still are singing). The counselors were always punctual, as was the bus, and friendly both in the morning and in the afternoon after a long, hot day. The counselors were always very attentive to both [...]- Kelly P., Camp Kinneret Parent
We use the professional bus services of Atlantic Express. All buses are driven by professional school bus drivers and are equipped with seatbelts and air conditioning.
Our Rider Cup Bus Spirit Challenge is a friendly inter-bus competition that includes singing, bus decorating, and the composition of a unique new bus song for each bus each session.
We hire our staff to ride our buses to and from camp. Each bus’s staff team works together under the supervision of a Bus Captain. Most buses have anywhere from 4-6 bus counselors on board. Bus staff is in constant communication with the camp office.
More than 25 different conveniently located neighborhood meeting points. Stops are located in Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Encino, Hidden Hills, Newbury Park, Oak Park, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Tarzana, Thousand Oaks, West Hills, Westlake Village and Woodland Hills.
On the Saturday prior to each session, bus counselors travel to each bus stop to meet campers and make personal connections. These meetings often provide that little extra peace of mind for new younger campers (and their parents) as they prepare for the first days of camp.
The bus is awesome–a perfect mix of safety and supervision with summer silliness and fun.- Stephanie W., Camp Kinneret Parent
Parents are welcome to drive their campers to and from camp. Camp staff are available during the following hours:

Pick up your camper from 3:50 – 4:45pm
Campers may be picked up or dropped off by their parents and ride the bus in the other direction. Simply sign up for bus transportation and let us know which direction you will be driving.
There is no additional charge for utilizing the extended hours and there is no discount available for parent provided transportation.

Camp Kinneret has provided wonderful experiences for my children for many, many years. The site and activities are fun, but it’s the quality of the counselors that make the experience what it is each summer. The traditional “feel” and camp songs are wholesome, just like when us parents were kids. I can’t recommend highly enough.- Jeff S., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
My children have spent their summers at Camp Kinneret since they were going into kindergarten. They have made friends, and built relationships with the counselors that are still close to our hearts. Going to camp feels like being at home for them. They absolutely love it.- Camp Kinneret Parent
Year after year, Camp Kinneret consistently offers a wonderful, safe and fun experience for my children. At the end of each camp day, they enthusiastically share about all of the exciting activities they did, friends they made, songs they sang and juice bars that they ate. At the close of the second session, they walk [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
What I see now is the cumulative effect of what Camp Kinneret has done for my kids all of these years. We are so grateful they have had this opportunity. Camp Kinneret has given them these experiences that we haven't been able to as parents. They've had what we had as kids, but better, with this group of amazing people.- Camp Kinneret Parent
This is the most amazing, loving, nurturing camp out there!- Rachel G., Camp Kinneret Parent
