Kids Camp

Kids Camp meets at 9am and ends at 2pm. Week One is from Monday July 29 to Friday August 2. Week Two is from Monday August 5 to Friday August . We’re in Room 6 every day at Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park (1895 Oak Knoll Lane, Menlo Park, CA 94025). On the first day, be sure to allow a little time to check in and make sure we have everything we need, and note who will pick up at 2 (let the person know to bring ID just in case).

Kids should dress in comfy warm weather clothes you don’t mind getting messy (painting and grass and stuff), and have some sunscreen on. We’ll reapply later. Personal care items and an extra outfit can be stored at camp. Pack a lunch and a snack (sorry, no nuts please!). There are water fountains, but a labeled water bottle could be a good idea. We have some fantastic volunteers coming to do taiko drumming with the kids—if your camper has noise-canceling headphones and you think they might help your child participate, send them in your child’s pack.

Be sure to take your child’s note about favorite activities and playmates when you pick up! On Fridays we have talent shows—we’ll ask kids at camp what they want to do (we have a lot of dancing to favorite songs) but let us know if they want to bring something in to do (instrument, jokes, etc.). Campers and staff will take pictures and put them up at a private Shutterfly site parents will have access to.

 

Teens Camp

Woo hoo! Starting up soon! Teens Camp meets at 9am and ends at 2pm. Week One is from Monday July 29 to Friday August 2, and Week Two is from Monday August 5 to Friday August 9. We will go somewhere different each day of Week One, but some of our pick up/drop off locations will repeat. On carpool days, if you live closer to the location we’re headed for than the carpool meeting place, you’re welcome to meet us at our destination, but please let us know! On the first day, allow a little time to check in and make sure we have everything we need, and note who will pick up at 2 (let the person know to bring ID just in case).

Teens should dress in comfy warm weather clothes you don’t mind getting messy (painting, grass, and stuff) and have some sunscreen on. They or we will reapply later. Personal care items and an extra outfit should be in your teen’s backpack. A labeled water bottle is a good idea! Pack a snack and lunch.

Be sure to take your teen’s note about favorite activities and buddies at pick up! These are great for planning get-togethers—you have a great idea of what to do and who to invite to have a successful outing. Campers and staff will take pictures and put them up at a private Shutterfly site parents will have access to. Schedule follows!
