FAQs

What kinds of camps do you offer and for what ages/grade levels?

We offer camps for children as young as 6 years old up through 15 (grades 1-8). Our camps strive to get children of all ages outdoors into nature as much as possible and may include inquiry based labs, kayaking, SUP (grades 3 and up) animal encounters, labs, crafts, scavenger hunts, games and more.

What does my child need to bring to camp?

Your child will need to bring sun block, a lunch (no peanut products please), drink and water bottle, water shoes (or old tennis shoes-something that can be worn in the water), beach towel and a change of clothes.  Grades k-2 campers need to bring a snack, not a lunch.

What are the dates/times of camps – are they half or full day?

All camps are full days (9am-3pm) for grades 3-8.  Grades 1-2 are half days from 9am-12pm).

How much do camps cost?

Camp prices vary. Please see individual camp descriptions.

Do you offer discounts to families sending more than one child to camp?

Unfortunately, no. We do not offer discounts for families sending multiple children to camp.

Do you offer scholarships at this time?

Sorry, at this time, we can’t offer scholarships. However, if grants become available, we will offer scholarships to children who are eligible for the federal lunch program.

What is the ratio of camps to counselors?

Our group sizes are small, with a camper to staff ratio of 4:1 at most.  An outstanding  SRCSD teacher will be assigned to each class.

Can my child attend more than one camp session during the summer?

There are multiple themes offered for different age groups. Your child may attend all of the different theme options within their age group. Please refer to the camp registration form for details.
