Professional Bus Drivers, School Buses, and Adult Counselors on Every Bus

Bus Safety & Professional Drivers

All Roughing It buses are driven by professional & experienced bus drivers from First Student School Bus Company. They have year-round experience driving buses for public and private school districts. All bus drivers are licensed to drive school buses. Most drivers come back year after year to Roughing It.

Aboard every bus is an adult camp counselor who provides additional camper supervision and carries out bus spirit activities during the bus ride. They are in direct communication with our office at all times by cellular phone.
