Transport

Book one of our escorted transport services or find out about dropping your child off at camp yourself.

Escorted transport

With Kingswood Camps staff supervision all the way to and from the camp, our Escorted Travel is a popular choice with many parents which also allows your child’s camp experience to start early as they will be socialising with fellow campers before even arriving on camp!

Choose from one of our meeting points, where your child will be signed in and transferred to the camp accompanied by our staff. On the return, all children are taken back to the meeting point, where our staff accompanying the children and transport team in the office will remain on duty until all children are collected. Places for our Sunday transport service fill up fast, so we’d recommend reserving your spot early - call us on 0800 655 6560 or book online.
