Camper Bus Transportation

Deer Run offers camper transportation to and from day camps via a bus from 9 area locations.

$55 per week per camper, Monday a.m. – Friday p.m.
Seating is limited and is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Add during online registration or at any time by logging into your account.

IMPORTANT: ONLY campers who signed up for bus transportation, have paid in FULL, and have signed the required online forms can check in at the bus location on Monday morning (1st day of camp). Call (615) 794-2918 if you have questions.

For questions related to bus safety and seat belts, visit www.nhtsa.dot.gov/School-Buses.

**ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR MONDAY MORNING CHECK-IN**

Campers should be at the location at least 10 minutes before the scheduled pick up time. 

The person picking up a camper should be at the location at least 10 minutes before the scheduled drop-off time.

The person picking up a camper MUST have the camper pickup code and is REQUIRED to show or say the code to Deer Run staff each day at checkout in order for the camper(s) to be released to them. A camper will not be released to someone even if the staff recognize them and have seen them each day of pick up without the camper pickup code.

If the person picking up your camper(s) does not have the camper pickup code, they will be asked step out of the line to contact the parent or guardian of the camper to retrieve the code. However, the bus cannot wait if the parent or guardian does not answer the phone and it is time to move on to the next stop. In this case, the camper(s) will not be released and will need to be picked up at camp by the parent, guardian or person who is able to say or show the camper pickup code.

If your camper needs to be picked up in the morning at one location and dropped off in the afternoon at a different location, both locations need to be selected in the online registration and each paid for to reserve a seat on the vehicle at both locations.

A minimum of two Deer Run Bus Commanders are on each vehicle. Bus Commanders check-in and check-out campers at each bus stop plus supervise campers and monitor behavior on the ride to and from camp.

  • max 2 per seat
  • assigned seats
  • siblings sitting together
  • kids in same camp group sitting together
  • windows open for circulation
  • thorough bus sanitizing each morning and afternoon
  • masks are optional and up to parent discretion

Locations and Schedules are Subject to Change.
If a change is made to the schedule, you will be contacted by email at least 1 week prior to the camp start date.
