For most campers, the day begins and ends with a bus ride. Transportation to and from Camp Shalom is provided by Badger Bus Company. Campers must get on the bus at the same stop in the mornings and off the bus at the same stop in the afternoons at the stops selected during the registration process. Every bus has at least two Bus Counselors riding along to greet the campers and take attendance, play games to make the ride more fun and to provide supervision. Campers are checked on and off the bus at each stop and at Camp. Transportation is not provided for extended care.
Contact email@example.com for more information about bus stops.
