Future Stars Southampton offers door-to-door transportation from Westhampton to Water Mill. Anyone living east of Water Mill will be picked up at the Bridgehampton Starbucks on Montauk Highway.
To register for the bus service, a parent or guardian must register their camper at least one week in advance. So, if you need bus service for the week of July 1, registration must be complete and submitted to the office by Monday, June 24 at 9:00 a.m.
We cannot register a camper for the bus after the deadline and late registrations will not be accepted. If a registration is submitted late, we cannot offer transportation for your camper.
Any changes made to the transportation schedule must be relayed to the main office via email. For example, if your camper is being picked up instead of taking the bus, if they are only taking the bus for select days, if they are only taking the bus one way, et cetera, the office must be notified directly. Please do not rely on third parties separate from the office staff to relay this important information appropriately and accurately. This includes counselors.
Transportation runs twice daily: once for 9:00 a.m. drop-off, and once for 4:00 p.m. pick-up. If a camper is in Little Stars, the camper will need to stay for the extended day program until 4:00 p.m. as there is not a bus available for the 2:00 p.m. dismissal. There is an additional charge for the extended day program.
Tiny Stars campers are too young for the bus service. Parents and guardians should arrange for proper drop-off and pick-up of Tiny Stars participants.
The cost of transportation is $160 per week, per camper. This price is non-negotiable. If a camper is not using the whole bus service they will not be prorated. There is not a sibling/household discount available for the bus service.
The bus routes are made on a weekly schedule. Because parents can register their campers up to one week in advance, the office will not have an accurate pick-up or drop-off time for your stop until the week before you are using the bus service. If your camper is enrolled for camp and transportation for multiple weeks out of the summer, please do not assume that the pick-up time will be the same every week. Our office will alert parents and guardians of their scheduled pick-up time no later than the Thursday before the start date of the camp week. So, if your camper is attending camp for the week of Monday, July 1, you can expect an email on Thursday, June 28.
Please be aware that as of the summer 2020 season, door-to-door service will no longer be available and we will have central stops only. We will do this to limit the amount of time that the campers are on the bus and so that we can give an accurate pick-up and drop-off time far enough in advance for parents to plan their week.
