School Bus Protocol
When boarding a school bus, one counselor stands between the line of campers boarding the vehicle and the oncoming traffic, facing the campers. This way traffic can clearly see a large body. This also allows the counselor to see if a camper dashes out in front of the bus, so the counselor can stop any oncoming traffic before the camper gets to the street.
After all of the campers have gotten on the bus a head count is done, starting from the back of the bus. This allows anyone else still getting on the bus to be included in the count. Only when the Head Counselors on the bus agree that they have everyone on the bus can the bus leave.
When the bus arrives at its destination, a counselor get off before the campers and places himself between the bus exit and the oncoming traffic, the same way they did when the campers boarded the bus. Another counselor gets off of the bus and waits for the camper on the sidewalk. When all of the campers have gotten off of the bus, a sweep is done, from the back of the bus, to check for any items that campers may have forgotten.
City Bus Protocol
When boarding a city bus it is important that a Head Counselor gets on the bus first, while another counselor puts himself between the campers getting on the bus and traffic. When getting off the bus it is the reverse. A counselor gets off first and positions herself between the campers getting off and the oncoming traffic. Another counselor is to wait for the campers on the side walk as they exit.
After entering the subway station each group of campers waits by the wall while a counselor presents the subway attendant with the subway pass. On the platform, the group stays against the wall until the train arrives. If there is no wall then the group is to stay together in the middle of the platform as far as possible from the tracks. Once the train comes the group is to follow one of the counselors onto the train while another counselor holds the door open with his/her body. The last person on the train is always a counselor. Exiting is the same. Campers are always told which door will be used when getting on and getting off before the train comes to a stop.
Should a child need medical attention during a trip, the counselors trained in RTE – Responding to Emergencies – will determine the proper course of action and communicate this to the camp office immediately.
