General Information

Day Camp (entering K-5th) and Senior Outpost (entering 6-9th)

Outpost CamperThe camp day for Day Camp and Senior Outpost is 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Parents may drop off their children between 8:45 and 9:00 AM and pick them up between 2:45 and 3:00 PM. Prior to the beginning of your child's session, we will offer an Open House where you will be able to practice the drop off and pick up, meet the camp director, and receive your child's shirts and car placard. Contact our office if you have additional questions.

Each camper brings a backpack with a water bottle, peanut-free lunch from home, and a swimsuit and towel. Please note that all electronics are strictly prohibited at camp, including smart watches and all phones of any type. We serve a daily snack in the afternoon, such as crackers and watermelon.

We swim Mondays through Fridays at Fit Athletic Club in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Each camper is individually evaluated on their swimming skills on the first day of each session, so that the best level of supervision and coaching can be provided at all times.

Junior Outpost (entering K-2nd)

Our youngest campers - entering K-2nd grade - have two program options. They are eligible to enroll in the Day Camp program (described above) OR Junior Outpost.

The Junior Outpost camp day is 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Parents drop off their campers between 9:15 AM and 9:30 AM and pick up between 1:15 PM and 1:30 PM.

Junior Outpost has been carefully designed as an introductory summer day camp experience: a shorter day, no pool, and age-appropriate activities. We create a nurturing environment built around the individual needs of each of our campers. A typical camp day begins with a "campfire," our traditional assembly full of songs, skits, and other old-fashioned camp activities. Campers then split into small, all-gender, age-based groups led by staff who balance camper needs (in a parental-type of approach) with creating excitement and energy for the camp activities.

In their small groups, campers engage in program activities including hiking and exploring the wilderness preserve, scavenger hunts, mystery guests, nature based crafts, old-fashioned age-appropriate camp games, and other traditional camp programming. We strive to create a unique community with a strong sense of belonging, so that each child feels a part of their "special group." We know that younger children vary in their ability and stamina to handle situations over the course of a busy camp day, so we're always on the lookout for anyone who needs extra attention or nurturing.

Each camper brings a backpack with a water bottle and a peanut-free lunch from home. Please note that all electronics are strictly prohibited at camp, including smart watches and all phones of any type. We serve a daily snack in the afternoon, such as crackers and watermelon.
