Camp Chippewa Bussing Reminders
On the first day of camp, your child will be given a bracelet colour corresponding to their bus – please leave this bracelet on for the remainder of camp as it will be used to identify your child at camp.
All busses have at least one staff person (bus monitor) who rides the bus from beginning to end. All children under the age of 16 must be signed out by an adult (over the age of 16).
While we make every effort to adhere to the bus schedule, we place an emphasis on safety and ask parents to arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time. Please include cell phone numbers for all authorized pick-ups in the event of a delay.
The bus you choose to transport your child must be the same for drop off and pick up for the entire week.
Busses will wait 5 minutes for children to be signed out before moving on to the next stop. Adults who arrive after the bus has departed must then pick up their child at their local YMCA (for Hamilton - lower city routes will go to the Downtown YMCA; mountain routes will go to the Les Chater YMCA or at a future bus stop on the route. The late fee will be applied to your family's account).
At YMCA Wanakita, the health and safety of our campers, families, staff and volunteers is our top priority. We are responding to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) situation and have temporarily closed YMCA Wanakita and cancelled Spring programs. Read our Letter to Camp Families.
