Summer at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center!
Summertime is so close you can feel it and so can the kids, we’ve missed you all and can’t wait to meet new friends. So, with that, we would love to send out a warm welcome to Come and Join us in the San Geronimo Valley for some Friends, Sun & Valley Fun at The San Geronimo Valley Community Summer Day Camp. Our camp is located on the beautiful campus of the Lagunitas School District up in the Youth Center also known as the LOFT in the San Geronimo Valley Community Gym.
Our camp is a small homestyle camp where we get to know one another, relax and go with the flow of both the day and with the camp kids. Our campers get the opportunity to meet up with old friends and meet new ones too. The camp counselor staff are experienced professionals working with our community throughout the year. We also bring in the young adult, next generation, counselors in training (CIT) to add to the variety of camp counselors.
We have run of both the upper and lower campuses as well as easy access to the San Geronimo Commons and the School Garden in between. We feel so lucky to have such a big backyard and fill our days with arts and crafts, cooking, games, sports and free play exploring our surroundings, often taking walking field trips between Roy’s Redwoods and our camp.
We hope to offer additional “Add-ons” for an enrichment experience to the end or beginning of the camp day, so Stay Tuned for more options like…skateboarding, band, chess club and gardening!
The health and safety of our campers and our community is our highest priority and we will be following the CDC and Marin County Public Health guidelines and ask our families to make the same commitment to honoring the guidelines as well.
While we know that drop-in camps have been a big part of our past offerings, this year we are asking all families to pre-register and participate for the entire three-day week camps we are offering. The registration form for camp is available here and the Spanish here and can be returned to Julie Young: firstname.lastname@example.org.
