Camp Alameda

     

Education, Nature, Safety, and Fun are the guidelines for this activity based day camp. Camp Alameda is filled with games, activities, arts and crafts, swimming every day, and lots more! Each week has activities, crafts, games and guests geared around a weekly theme.

Camp Alameda program begins at 9:00am and runs until 4:30pm Monday through Friday. We offer an early drop-off at 7:00am and a late pickup until 5:30pm at no extra charge!

(You must note on your registration form if you will be taking advantage of our early drop-off or late pickup)


Camp sessions are one week in length and campers are divided into age appropriate activities throughout the day. Don't worry about missing swim lessons, swim team practice or attending one of our many special events. If requested, our counselors will make sure that your child gets to any of these programs in Alameda Park, and back to camp! All campers must be potty trained and at least 5 years of age. Those campers 5 years of age are preferred to have already successfully completed a pre-school program or other day care to be able to understand the schedule of a day camp. Campers should bring a sack lunch with them. Campers should also pack a bathing suit and towel everyday. Snacks and beverages will be provided throughout the day.

 

The cost for Camp Alameda is $125 per child per week

($100 for each additional sibling registered for the same week)

We also have a special 10-week discount for only $1,000!

 

Let your kids have fun this summer, register today for Camp Alameda. If your child is age 12 or older, ask about our C.I.T. (counselor in training) program.
