The vast majority of our students travel to and from school by bus and therefore an important part of preparation for high school is investigation of bus routes and identification of the correct bus number to travel to and from school. The bus companies that provide transport to Camden High School are:

  • Busabout
  • Picton Coaches
  • Interline
