Spring Day Camp 2017 - "Green & Growing"

April 2-6, 2018 at Aptos Village Park, 7:30AM-6PM

"Adventures In Play" is the theme for this springtime day camp for children in grades K-6.  Each day of the program features activities--art, crafts, games, sports, cooking, science--which relate to the day’s theme, including Marvelous Mammals, Carnivale, Flights of Fancy, and Outdoor Odyssey.   Also included is a field trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk for a day of rides and fun! 

Important:  You may register your child in the extended care programs (AM & PM Care) only if they are enrolled in the “Rec. Core” program. Pre-registration is required. A participant information & emergency card must be filled out before your child can attend the program; this can be done on site the first day.  Please send your child with a lunch and snack each day,  wearing closed-toe shoes (no sandals) and with a jacket or sweatshirt.   

Please note - the site is closed on field trip days. Send your child with a lunch and snacks each day, wearing closed-toe shoes (i.e., sneakers).
