Bus

Our bus service is the most convenient way for campers to get to and from camp. Parents appreciate the sense of security and peace of mind they get from our bus tracking technology — a feature available from the Family Dashboard during the summer months — that shows real-time information on the location of their child's bus!
Also, we hire and train counselors to serve as Bus Captains and Bus Monitors. Our Bus Captains greet families at each stop and work hard to turn the bus ride into an extension of the camp day by playing games and leading spirit challenges along the way! At the end of the day, Bus Captains ensure that each child is safely delivered to their designated stop and that campers are picked up only by authorized individuals. Each bus also has at least one Bus Monitor. Bus Monitors help with attendance and supervising camper behavior.
Our buses cover many towns in the greater Boston area, and we are always open to adding additional towns!
Our bus schedules for summer 2023 are under development. Families who register for the bus will receive an email as soon as the times are set, which will be in the spring.

Details

Pick-up cards are required each day at drop-off and pick-up. Our Bus Captains use secure, proprietary LINX technology to track attendance and correctly identify individuals authorized for pick-up.
Please plan to arrive at your stop 10 minutes before bus pick-up in the morning and 10 minutes before the bus drop-off in the afternoon.
Buses depart from our campus by 4:30pm each afternoon to begin their routes.
Please note: Bus schedules are subject to change.

Bus Stop Request

Each summer we create bus stops at optimal locations for our families and take recommendations for the safest bus stop locations. The more families from one neighborhood that attend LINX Camps during the same weeks, the more likely we can place a bus stop right in the neighborhood!

Rates

The cost of the bus is $10 less per week for each sibling. For example, when the bus is at its full price of $85/week, then the first child from the family to ride the bus costs $85, their sibling costs $75/week, their next sibling costs $65/week, etc.

2023 Rates

You won’t see a better rate than you see today! As summer gets closer, each future promotion will never be quite as awesome as the one before it.

The rates for Jr. Fun Bunch Camp and our Counselor in Training (CIT) program are lower than the rates you see below and can be found on their program pages.

We offer a sibling discount on bus service which is $10 less per week for each sibling. Please use the pricing calculator to estimate your rate with bus savings.

My son was lucky enough to be in his group one week and couldn't say enough great things about him. He clearly has the passion and energy to excel in his role. The kids love him and as a parent, he's a daily reminder that LINX Camps hires only the best and brightest for their counselors!" K.S., Sherborn
I was impressed with the counselors on the bus. They seemed to know every child's name and they were very friendly and organized." I was impressed with the counselors on the bus. They seemed to know every child's name and they were very friendly and organized." M.K., Needham
We were thrilled that you added a Needham Heights bus stop this year. We appreciated how convenient the new stop was and that it allowed our camper a new level of independence of walking home on his own!!"
