Bus Information

Transportation from Winnipeg to Kenora and return is provided by chartered bus. The buses are equipped with air conditioning, a bathroom and video screens for a movie presentation. All departures and returns will be from the Asper Jewish Community Campus’ school parking lot (123 Doncaster Street), in front of the Gray Academy school building.

Buses will be boarded by age group and in some age sections by gender. Campers are assigned to a particular bus for the ride to and from Camp. Please find the tentative bus schedule for this summer following this section. Camp buses will be staggered to accommodate the limited dock space in Kenora. Camp buses will leave early in the morning between 7:45 – 8:30 A.M.

If you plan to meet the buses in Kenora instead, you must be at the Main Street docks by 10:15 A.M. Parents must notify the Kenora office 48 hours in advance if they choose to drive to Kenora.

The camp bus returns to Winnipeg between 12:00 - 2:00 P.M. The buses will again be staggered. Your child(ren) will return on the same bus group assignment. Families wishing to meet their children in Kenora should be at the Main Street docks by 10:30 A.M. Again, you must contact the camp office 48 hours in advance if you want to pick up your child(ren) in Kenora.

BUS ASSIGNMENT SCHEDULE*

Families are asked to meet at the Asper Campus 15 minutes prior to departure time. Your child’s bus assignment will be sent to your home two weeks prior to departure by Email. Remember that the return times are an estimate time of arrival. Please do not contact the Kenora camp office for bus arrival updates. Camp staff are quite busy during departure dates and the phone lines have limited supervision during this time. Please phone the Winnipeg Camp Office at 204.477.7512 after 11:00 A.M. on the day of your child(ren)’s arrival date to confirm your time (except Habonim, please call after 3:30 P.M.). A recorded bus arrival schedule will be posted on the voice mail.
