Camp Extras

Camp Shuttle

Save yourself a trip to Base Camp! We have a shuttle that leaves the Southridge Rec Center each morning and another shuttle that returns to the Southridge Rec Center each afternoon (summer only).

  • Anyone in any Camp Backcountry summer session can ride the camp shuttle
  • Cost: $5 each direction when pre-register; $8 each direction when register day-of
  • Drop-off and pick-up location: Southridge Rec Center
  • Morning shuttle: If your child is headed to Base Camp on the morning shuttle, you will drop your child off in the front loop of the Southridge Rec Center between 8:30 and 8:40 a.m. The shuttle will leave promptly at 8:40 a.m. Campers who arrive at Southridge after 8:40 a.m. will miss the shuttle and will need to be dropped off at our Base Camp.
  • Afternoon shuttle: If your child is returning on the afternoon shuttle, please be in the front loop of the Southridge Rec Center to pick up your child no later than 4:00 p.m. If you would like for your child to sign themselves out in the afternoon to walk home, please contact the Camp Director for the camper self-release form.
