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 a Closing Campfire. Campers leave at 4pm, with an option for extended care available until 6pm. Extended care may be purchased on a daily or weekly basis.

For Grades 1 – 4, our camp day will consist of 4 one-hour blocks of activities with a small break in between.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 involved and engaged.

For Entering Kindergartners, we will be holding 2 weeks of Kindergarten camp between August 5 to August 16. We encourage all kindergarteners entering our program in Fall 2019 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.

For more information about how to prepare for summer camp, see the bottom of this page.
