Transportation

Hi Hills offers door-to door transportation service as well as community stops.  We have our own buses and vans, hire our own drivers and create the best possible routes to accommodate our camp families. Our vehicles are all in compliance with state regulations and our drivers are background checked and fully licensed. Every bus has a bus counselor to attend to the needs of your camper and extend the camp day experience.

Transportation covers many areas of Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Union, Warren, Hunterdon and Essex Counties.

Transportation is available and included for Hi Hills Traditional Day Camp. However, there is an additional cost for transportation for campers enrolled in only enrichment, academic and/ or sports camps.

    Hi Hills takes the health and well-being of our campers very seriously.

This practice also applies to stormy days.
