Activities change weekly and include: face painting, carnival treats, bring-your-wheels day, talent showcases, splash day, theme parties and many more fun activities that help make those lasting camp memories.
Field trips will take place every Wednesday and will be to a variety of fun destinations such as museums, parks, beaches, zoos, and other local bay area locations. We charter yellow buses to all field trips (except for local park in walking distance). Field trips will be announced in April and listed on this website.
