Transportation

camper-dropoffSafe transportation to and from camp is the name of the game. To do that, we employ trusted drivers, keep ahead of scheduled bus maintenance and use centralized stops that are safe and easy to access. Serving the surrounding communities including Brookline, Newton, Chestnut Hill, and Boston, Beaver transportation features:

  • Buses that are owned, operated and serviced by a professional bus company
  • Buses that are equipped with seat belts
  • Drivers who have Massachusetts School Bus Commercial Driver’s Licenses, outstanding driving safety records and have passed frequent backgrounds checks
  • Experienced, mature professionals who drive children year-round
  • Drivers who are trained to conduct daily, detailed safety inspections of their bus
  • The additional supervision of at least 2 Beaver staff members who receive training in how to safely manage campers on a school bus
  • The convenience of enrolling by the week, either round trip or one way

Why Take the Bus?

  • Avoid waiting in the afternoon-pick-up line
  • Save fuel and be kind to the environment
  • It’s reasonably priced
