If you drive your child to/from camp, you will receive a discount of $850 per camper attending for 6, 7, and 8 weeks ($600 for 4 and 5 week campers). Drop-off is between 8:45 am and 9:00 am ; pickup is between 3:45 pm and 4:00 pm.
CENTRAL EXPRESS BUS STOP DISCOUNT - Up To $500 Per Camper
Chances are, there’s a Pick-up/Drop-off location near you!
If you drive your child to/from a Central Express stop, you will receive a discount of $500 per camper attending for 6, 7, and 8 weeks ($350 for 4 and 5 week campers). More than 90% of our camp families opt for our Central Pick-Up option.
EXPRESS CENTRAL STOPS
Black Bear Lake offers EXPRESS CENTRAL STOPS. Express buses head directly to Camp after their pick-up and when leaving camp in the afternoon go directly to the EXPRESS CENTRAL STOP. After boarding at an Express Central Stop the bus goes directly to Camp without making any other stops along the way. If you want your child to have the shortest run possible, please opt for one of our EXPRESS CENTRAL STOPS. EXPRESS CENTRAL Bus Runs are between 15-25 minutes. We have EXPRESS CENTRAL STOPS in all of the areas we service.
NEIGHBORHOOD CENTRAL STOP RUNS
Neighborhood Central Stops have 2 or 3 central stops along the run. All stops are in the same general area and are on the way to camp. We added these Neighborhood Central Stops to developments and communities where we have a large concentration of campers. These bus runs are only a few minutes longer than our EXPRESS CENTRAL STOPS. These runs are between 20-40 minutes.
Each Black Bear Lake bus is designed to provide maximum comfort and safety. All buses are air-conditioned and equipped with seat belts, cell phones and tracking devices. Each bus is driven by a New Jersey CDL-certified driver and is supervised by a bus counselor to ensure the safety and welfare of our campers.

THE MOST RIGOROUS SAFETY STANDARDS USED
BBL only uses NJ LICENSED & REGULATED School Buses
- All Vehicles MEET STATE STANDARDS and regulations as a child transport vehicle.
- All Vehicles are SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR SAFETY- with heavy duty structure, bright color, and EMERGENCY EXITS.
- All vehicles have FLASHING WARNING LIGHTS to alert others to stop when your child gets on/off the bus.
BBL only uses PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS
- All Drivers possess A NJ SCHOOL BUS CDL LICENSE and are scrutinized for their driving safety record by the State of NJ.
- These drivers are mature professionals who DRIVE CHILDREN TO SCHOOL & CAMP ALL YEAR and do not work at camp all day long.
- These drivers have EXPERIENCE DRIVING WITH ACTIVE CHILDREN on local roads, in the rain, and with high noise levels.
Some area camps are using the outdated converted white passenger vans to transport campers. These vehicles do not have any of the safety features of a school bus and are often driven by inexperienced drivers who, generally, do not have state-issued school bus driver licenses (CDL). Passenger vans are much less expensive to operate but we feel it puts children at risk.
