Camp Transportation: Leave The Driving To Us!

Camp season at Frogbridge is just around the corner. We are so excited to see familiar faces and meet new ones! Our drivers are all revved-up, too! They’re the magic carpet rides that bring our campers safely from home to camp and back again each day. Their care for the children, make campers feel comfortable and our parents feel secure knowing that their children are well looked after when the bus pulls away. To the drivers, their bus routes are so much more personal than just a bus-ride or a job: they are looking after extended family! 

Children Arriving at Summer Camp on Bus

Parents feel confident leaving their kids with our drivers, not just because of their smiling faces each morning, but because we only hire the best and most experienced drivers to transport such precious cargo. At Frogbridge we take great pains to ensure that our drivers are competent and trustworthy. All drivers are CDL licensed, finger printed as well as drug tested and have passed several background checks. In fact, our transportation specialists have many years of experience transporting children throughout central New Jersey. 

Whether your child is 4 or 14 years old, we understand the pre-camp jitters and how scary it can seem to be driven to a new place by a strange person. To give them the confidence they need, we introduce campers to their drivers with a dry-run meet and greet in June before camp starts. This makes the children (and parents too!) feel comfortable during their ride because they have a familiar face they already met before the first day of camp. 

New Summer, New Stops!

Central Express is one of our most popular transportation options. At designated locations throughout Central NJ, groups of campers can be picked up at a discounted rate. Each day, parents bring their kids to the designated bus stop where our drivers are waiting to bring them to a new day of frog-tastic fun! 

We are proud to announce that this option is now available to even more families because we are adding several new stops to the Central Express. We believe that ever camper should have the opportunity and ease to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience to be had at Frogbridge. If transportation has been the obstacle in the way of your child’s attendance at Frogbridge Day Camp or if you’ve been looking for a more convenient central location, see if any of our Central Express stops work for you:

Transportation Options For All Family Schedules 

It’s as easy as A,B,C…and D! 

A) As always, our door-to-door transportation is available for all campers. Each morning and evening our drivers will pick up your child(ren) from home and return them safely, so you as a parent never have to worry about driving or missing a bus.  

B) For parents and families with busy schedules or who prefer to drive their precious cargo themselves, there is the option for parents to drop off and pick up their children each day, and best of all, at a discounted rate!.  

Basic parent drop off follows the same arrival and departure time as our bus transportation, with drop off times between 9:00-9:10am and pick up times between 4:00-4:10pm. each day. 

C) Those who choose to enroll in our Extended Care program can drop off their campers as early as 7:30 am and pick up as late as 6:00pm. so parents can work around busy work schedules. (i.e. if both parents work in the city and are unable to be home at the time camp ends). This program allows children to be supervised by teachers and counselors leading activities until an adult family member is able to take the child home, ensuring their safety.  

D) We now also offer a late bus option to some towns throughout our pick up zones. In an effort to make matters even more convenient for those who cannot make it to camp to pick up their children by 6:00pm, we now have late busses that will drive to designated central bus stops, dropping kids off at or around 6:00pm. Please call our office for details and to register for this amazing new transportation option! 

For more information on our transportation services and extended care options see our Transportation Page or give us a call!  

Thinking about enrolling? It’s never too late. Simply call our friendly office and arrange a personal tour today!
