Sewataro is less than 15 miles west of Watertown
We did not have a stop in Watertown in 2016. Because there is not a stop, the bus fee is discounted by 50% to families in Watertown. Depending on interest, we could add a stop in Watertown if demand allowed.
In 2016, campers from Watertown used one of two bus stops:
- Eliot Ave and Wedgewood Rd, Newton, picking up 7:50am in the morning and dropping off at 4:15pm in the afternoon.
From the Newton stop, the bus travels directly to Sewataro.
- Chenery Middle School (95 Washington St, Belmont), picking up 7:45am in the morning and dropping off at 4:30pm in the afternoon.
From the Chenery stop, the bus travels to another stop in Belmont and then to Sewataro.
Buses arrive at camp around 8:30 a.m. and depart around 3:45 p.m.
You will be greeted at the stop by a bus monitor. Bus monitors are Sewataro staff members that are responsible for the safety, supervision and entertainment of the children on the bus. During the bus ride, monitors will lead songs and games, making the ride an extension of the camp day. At the end of the day, the bus monitor will check your identification against a list of grownups authorized to pick up your child before releasing your child to you.
