Summer@Potomac is pleased to offer complimentary busing for all campers! Using our fleet of buses, Potomac offers over 40 bus stops throughout the DMV area. Carpool is only available for campers entering Kindergarten and their siblings.  Campers of any age who live in our neighboring community, Evermay, may choose to walk or ride a bike to camp in place of carpool or busing. Arrival and departure methods for campers are selected at the time of registration.

Transportation changes must be submitted by 12:00 pm the day of the request. To ensure campers safety, late requests cannot be accommodated.

Morning Drop Off

Morning carpool begins at 8:45 am. Staff are not available to greet campers before then. Campers are asked to remain in their vehicle until instructed by a Summer@Potomac staff member to unload. Staff will unload all campers and escort them to their camp’s meeting location. Drivers must remain in their car at all times. Please do not arrive before 8:45 am.

Afternoon Pick Up

Afternoon carpool begins at 2:45 pm.  Please display your carpool tag on the passenger side visor of your car and have the name showing when you arrive. Staff will load all campers into their cars. After your car has been loaded please flip the visor up to indicate you are ready to leave. Drivers must remain in their car at all times. Please do not arrive before 2:45 pm.


Summer@Potomac does not allow campers to arrive or depart by any rideshare or car service (Uber, Lyft, taxi, etc)


Campers that live in our local community may register to walk or bike to camp. Upon arriving on campus, campers need to check in with a staff member at the llama statue. Staff will then direct campers where to meet their group.

At the end of the day, all walkers and bike riders MUST check-out with a staff member at the llama statue before they leave campus. If the walk/bike option is chosen during online registration, campers will not be permitted to leave campus unaccompanied unless “Yes” is selected for the walk/bike waiver. An adult meeting a camper for dismissal must wait at the llama statue.

Late Arrival/Early Dismissal

Families are asked to refrain from dropping campers late or picking up campers early unless there is an emergency. Please schedule doctor’s appointments, tutoring sessions, or any other appointments outside of camp hours. If a camper needs to be dropped off late or picked up early please contact the appropriate camp office. When arriving on campus please park in front of the Flag Circle Building and call the appropriate camp. A staff member will meet you outside.

Changes to Transportation

Any changes to your camper’s transportation, including authorized pick up, need to be provided in writing to the camp office no later than 12:00pm on the day of the change; if the change involves the bus your camper rides, please be sure to copy the transportation office.
