Bus Information

Elementary school students getting of a bus


Shady Side Academy offers bus transportation to our Fox Chapel campuses from the North Hills and East End neighborhoods of Pittsburgh for an additional cost of $70 per family, per week. Our Shady Side Academy buses drop summer school students off at Rowe Hall (Senior School), and campers at the athletic complex (Senior School) or the Middle School.


We have bus counselors riding with campers to make sure the bus is a safe and friendly environment with supervision for all.

Bus reservations are included in the online registration process. However, to reserve a specific bus stop you must submit a Bus Stop Form by June 1; families who do not express a stop preference will be assigned a stop.

Please note: these times are approximate and may change.

"My daughter was ecstatic to learn she was able to attend the East End Explorers camp again. Each day she came home, she poured out the day's events like a faucet. She was extremely happy. It was truly a blessing to know that it was made possible because of your thoughtfulness. Thank you so much for all your assistance. Somehow I don't feel thank you is quite enough."

"Our son has been attending [camp] for the past six years. He has enjoyed every summer attending Discovery Camp and Camp Ren and looks forward to coming back year after year!"
