What is camp like?
WHAT IS SUMMER CAMP LIKE?
Parents may drop off at 39995 Mission Blvd, Fremont, CA as early as 8am. Our camp officially starts at 9am with Camp Opening Ceremonies in the Auditorium. Our Camp Counselors will get everyone singing, chanting, and playing games. By 9:30 we split off into small groups and start our activities for the day. Camp ends with Campfire and recapping in the auditorium. Regular campers leave at 4pm, and we have extended care available until 6pm for those who wish to stay longer. Extended care may be purchased on a daily or weekly basis on the day needed.
For Grades 1 – 4, our camp day will consist of 4 one-hour blocks of activities with a small break in between. Fifth and sixth graders will have 3 blocks, one of which will be two hours long. Each week of Summer Camp will have a theme (described below) and will consist of numerous single and multiday activities that will surely keep your campers challenged and delighted.
For Grades 5 – 6, we will typically have 3 blocks of activities, one of which is 2 hours long (with a break in between) to get our older campers really involved in a project.
For Entering Kindergartners, we will be holding 2 weeks of Kindergarten camp between August 6 to August 17. We encourage all kindergarteners entering our program in Fall 2018 to come to at least one week of camp so that they can familiarize themselves with our staff and facilities before the school year starts. That way, on the first day of school, only their home school and homeroom teacher is new, and they will already know us.
