Bus transportation is offered on three separate routes, with a total of 12 stops at convenient locations throughout Greater Hartford. Bus service on these centrally located buses is FREE of charge.
We also provide door-to-door bus service on two separate routes to West Hartford residents for a fee. Every effort is made to ensure a safe ride and to minimize the amount of time spent on the bus. Summer Place counselors supervise the campers on each bus.View the schedule
Campers may either bring their own brown-bag lunch each day or purchase a full session of prepaid bag lunches prepared by an outside food service company. All lunches are refrigerated. Summer Place provides a beverage at lunch and a mid-afternoon Popsicle snack.View the menu
