Camp begins as soon as your child steps onto the bus in the morning and ends when he/she gets off the bus at the end of the day. Campers are picked up and returned by yellow school bus or mini bus. Parents have the option of driving their children. Bus transportation is door-to-door in New Canaan, Stamford, Pound Ridge, Bedford, Westport, Weston, Wilton, Southport, Norwalk, Rowayton, Darien, Greenwich, Old Greenwich, Riverside, and Cos Cob with central pick-up in other towns unless otherwise discussed between parent and camp director. The cost of transportation is included in tuition. Additionally, we offer an early drop-off from 8:30 a.m. and late pick-up until 5:00 p.m. at no additional cost.
All vehicles have seat belts and are driven by professional drivers. At least one Camp Playland counselor is on each bus and is assigned to be the Bus Counselor. This person helps campers enjoy a safe and fun ride to and from camp. Campers are never left unattended.
Parents may call to pick up a camper or to make other arrangements. Due to limited capacity on buses we cannot promise that a camper will be allowed to ride another vehicle.
Camp Playland is a secure facilitiy. A staff person is situated at the Playland entrance. All visitors check in at the “Visitor Check-In Table.” No camper is released without clearance from camp directors.
