Bus Information


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.

  • Transportation is provided to and from camp. Convenient locations have been selected in your neighborhood. Please select only one bus stop on the registration form.
  • Normal Bus Routes do not run on Thursday afternoons due to Family Night. Please see Parent Handbook for more info on Thursday evening Family Nights.
  • Camp buses stop only at locations listed on schedule.
  • Actual pickup spot may change from week to week due to location requirements; please give yourselves a few extra minutes to locate the bus on Monday mornings.
  • Traffic congestion and road construction may slightly affect actual times.
  • The bus sites are not supervised before pickup times or after drop off times.
  • Please be on time, as your delay will affect others.
  • Campers not picked up by an adult on the list will be brought back to the Ridgedale YMCA.
  • No bus changes will be accepted after the first day of your camp session.

For your camper’s safety…

Whoever is picking up the camper must have a photo ID and be listed on the Authorized Pick Up section of the registration form. Please contact the camp at 952-472-1018 to make any changes prior to noon on the day of the change.
