We are following all county, CDC guidelines, and requirements concerning the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, Health Officer Order with updated Shelter-in-Place guidelines for Alameda County is published and we have to make some changes to our camps according to it.

To comply with the order we are required to maintain Childcare or Youth Extracurricular Activity Units (CYE Activity Unit) for a minimum of 3 weeks.

So we are going to combine our one-week camps into 3-week units and ask everyone to register for three weeks in a row.

Some camps have 1 and 2-week units. You cannot register to the other camps within the 3-week window period at this time.

Once new guidelines to the Camp and Child Care operations will be issued we might be able to accommodate more students. Send us an email if you have any questions.
All camps have a limit of 6-10 students.

No Extended Care, no 1-day camps are available at this time.

The health of our students and staff is our highest priority.
