It’s an annual rite of passage that puts smiles on the faces of both parents and children. It’s called summer camp. From a bucolic wilderness surrounding a youth ranch to the bustling activity unfolding inside a recreational center, summer camps expand the horizons of kids by providing teaching tools that lead to the most important education moment of all: Discovery
For parents, summer camp brings a much need weeklong hiatus from rearing and developing young bodies and minds. Parents can simply sit outside and soak in the sweet sounds of silence or take a much needed vacation to a favorite destination. Since most summer camps are planned by camp managers and counselors, all parents seemingly have to do is pack up the car and head out of town.
Not so fast.
As one of the most important parts of planning a summer camp, ground transportation is often the difference between you maintaining a reasonable blood pressure and pulling your hair out, while you angrily scream at the sky. Don’t worry about ground transportation for this year’s summer camp and many more summer camps to come.
Leave your summer camp ground transportation worries to the highly rated professionals at ST Charters and Buses.

ST Charters and Buses for Summer Camps
When your organization rents a charter bus for summer camp, you receive an affordable solution for your group transportation criteria. Charter buses cost less person to rent than driving several vehicles because the cost for fuel and maintenance expenses is spread out over many more children.
Here are some other reasons to go with ST Charters and Buses for summer camp ground transportation:
Have you ever sent your kids off to summer camps in a standard vehicle? If you answered yes, then you know about the logistical nightmare of organizing dozens of cars to leave and arrive at the same time. In fact, you run the risk of losing track of a car or two full of children along the route. Confusion arises when a driver takes a different route than the route agreed upon by summer camp organizers. The solution to ground transportation issues that arise by using multiple cars is to rent a bus. One charter bus departs on time and it arrives at the summer camp on time.
Outside of taking a driver’s test when you turned 16, when was the last time you received extensive driver training? The answer is most likely never, which makes St Charters and Buses the logical choice for summer camp ground transportation. Our safety rating is second to none in the group transportation industry. Why place the safety of your kids in the hands of careless and inattentive drivers. Moreover, when you contract with ST Charters and Buses, you will rest assured every one of our buses has undergone a meticulous safety inspection.
Remove All Driving Stressors
Trying to get out of greater Houston can tax the nerves of the stoutest person. Constant traffic jams caused by a wide variety of reasons can turn a 90-minute drive to summer camp into a half-day ordeal. Why put up with standing in traffic, when a professionally trained driver knows exactly how to deal with the situation. By renting a charter bus from St Charters and Buses, you say goodbye to rude drivers, as well as drivers that haven’t gotten the message that it is unsafe to text and drive.
As we mentioned, charter buses consume less fuel per passenger, which means renting a bus from ST Charters and Buses represents an excellent way to help the environment. A charter bus that carries near the maximum number of passengers allowed can get up to five time the fuel economy generated by a fleet of two-door and four-door cars.
ST Charters and Buses offer customers the ultimate in convenience. We travel to summer camps located throughout the Lone Star State, as well as to neighboring states like Louisiana and Oklahoma.
School Buses Don’t Make the Comfort Cut
The temptation to save money by renting a standard school bus can come back to bite you. Summer camp drives can take several hours and the last thing you want is a bunch of restless kids causing trouble in the aisle or roughhousing it up at the back of the bus. Let’s say your organization’s summer camp bus comes across a bottleneck on the freeway. Do you want the children to have nothing to do, while they sit in uncomfortable seats? St Charters and Buses take the boredom out of bus rides by offering kids a large number of entertainment options. We deliver supreme comfort by putting children in super soft, reclining seats that can turn restless children into peaceful kids enjoying much deserved naps.
Storage Space for Everything
Ranging from a weeklong scouting excursion to days of educational lessons, summer camp requires the packing of a significant number of personal possessions. Kids need clothing, toiletries, and electronic devices that keep them pleasantly occupied for between five and seven days. This means your group will need plenty of room to store multiple pieces of luggage brought along by dozens of children. The last thing you want as a summer camp organizer is to lose sleep because of the lack of charter bus storage space. At ST Charters and Buses, we provide more than enough storage space to accommodate both small and large groups. We match the size of your group and the length of the summer camp to a charter bus that easily stores and organizes personal possessions.
