Camp Drop Off and Pick Up

Families who are dropping their camper off directly at camp and are not choosing a bus

  • When registering, you can select “No Bus Needed”
  • If you selected “No Bus Needed” please plan to arrive at camp between 8:45-9:00am and pick up from 3:30-3:45pm. Please remember to stay in your car and we will bring your camper to you. Be prepared with your photo ID! 

Bus Stop Locations

The YMCA provides safe and reliable transportation each day for our campers to begin their adventure! Bus stop locations are available throughout the communities listed. Transportation is provided by YMCA-owned vans, leased vans, and buses. All drivers have completed special training. Campers are expected to follow our bus rules and safety guidelines. All campers registered for Day Camp, Wee Backpackers or one of the Specialty Day Camps must select a bus stop or enroll in Before and After Care OR sign up for No Bus/No Care and plan on dropping off and picking up their campers directly at Camp Spring Lake.

Below are the planned bus stop locations for 2023 SO FAR, but please check back closer to camp for final bus stop locations and times.

ALL BUS LOCATIONS AND TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON ENROLLMENT NOTICE. PLEASE CHECK BACK EVERY FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
