Bus

Our bus service is the most convenient way for campers to get to and from camp. Parents appreciate the sense of security and peace of mind they get from our bus tracking technology — a feature available from the Family Dashboard during the summer months — that shows real-time information on the location of their child's bus!
Also, we hire and train counselors to serve as Bus Captains and Bus Monitors. Our Bus Captains greet families at each stop and work hard to turn the bus ride into an extension of the camp day by playing games and leading spirit challenges along the way! At the end of the day, Bus Captains ensure that each child is safely delivered to their designated stop and that campers are picked up only by authorized individuals. Each bus also has at least one Bus Monitor. Bus Monitors help with attendance and supervising camper behavior.
Our buses cover many towns in the greater Boston area, and we are always open to adding additional towns!
Our bus schedules for summer 2024 are under development. Families who register for the bus will receive an email as soon as the times are set, which will be in the spring.

Details

Pick-up cards are required each day at drop-off and pick-up. Our Bus Captains use secure, proprietary LINX technology to track attendance and correctly identify individuals authorized for pick-up.
Please plan to arrive at your stop 10 minutes before bus pick-up in the morning and 10 minutes before the bus drop-off in the afternoon.
Buses depart from our campus by 4:30pm each afternoon to begin their routes.
Please note: Bus schedules are subject to change.

Bus Stop Request

Each summer we create bus stops at optimal locations for our families and take recommendations for the safest bus stop locations. The more families from one neighborhood that attend NEOC during the same weeks, the more likely we can place a bus stop right in the neighborhood!

Stops for weeks of June 24th - August 19th

Stops are anticipated at locations below. We are not running a bus the week of July 1st.

Rates

The cost of the bus is $10 less per week for each sibling. For example, if the current bus promotion is $60/week, then the first child from the family to ride the bus costs $60, their sibling costs $50/week, their next sibling costs $40/week, etc.

2024 Rates

You won’t see a better rate than you see today! As summer gets closer, each future promotion will never be quite as awesome as the one before it.

We offer a sibling discount on bus service which is $10 less per week for each sibling. Please use the pricing calculator to estimate your rate with bus savings.

My son took the bus and the counselors who rode the bus with him were beyond lovely! At camp, he loved the variety of activities that kept him moving and engaged.

We had a fantastic experience! Charlotte loved the kind and welcoming counselors (both on the bus and during the day at camp). She felt comfortable right away, and, especially in her first week, made some great friends. The bus was really fun for her, and we appreciated the thoughtful bus driver."

NEOC was a great and wholesome camp for our son. The bus driver was amazing, as were the counselors who accompanied my son on the bus. Thank you!" NEOC was a great and wholesome camp for our son.
