Summer Rec Camp and Rookie Camp has always been about mixing it up to offer kids lots of different opportunities to try new things! This year we’ve re-imagined the program to capture the spirit of the previous year’s program but to also meet the requirements under the County public health orders. 

Rookie Camp

Explore fun, engaging recreational activities separate from the Summer Rec Cares participants. This program includes outdoor sports, arts & crafts enriching group activities and more! Activities are organized and structured for the entire group.

Summer Rec Cares
Age 6-13 yrs
Get your kids on a track of fun this summer! Summer Rec Care will group participants by age and preferred activity track. The three tracks are as follows:

Arts & Crafters: a wide variety of DYI projects, life skills, LEGO challenges, S.T.E.M. projects and art

Sports Fanatics: indoor/outdoor sports including field games, basketball, flag football, bocce,  and lots more!

Want It All Kids:  combination of arts & crafts and sports

During the registration process, you will be prompted to select a preferred track. Staff will make every effort to place participants in their preferred track but groups have to be established based on the logistics of adhering to public health regulations. Summer Rec Cares also offers multiple schedule options to meet our family’s needs. Participants must register for the full session. The morning program (9 am-12:30 pm) will include track activities that give participants a variety of enrichment and recreational activities. The afternoon program (12:30-5:30 pm) will include outdoor activities, games, a weekly swim day, and recreation fun! Additional program information will be emailed to parents the Friday before the first day of camp.
