Join us for our 19th summer in beautiful Humboldt County along the Eel River. Campers will enjoy the great outdoors among redwood trees and participate in activities that include canoeing, sports, arts and crafts, performing arts, and so much more. In partnership with the YMCA of the East Bay, El Cerrito is offering three sessions of camp for summer 2019. The first session, Mini Camp will be a shorter, 5-day/4-night session, session for campers entering 3-9th grades. This is a great option for campers who want to give camp a try or campers who already love it but need to be back for the weekend. The second session, Traditional Camp is for campers entering 3-9th grades and is a full week session that features an overnighter in the backwoods. The third session, “Teen Week”, will round us out for the summer and is available for campers entering 8-12th grades. CIT’s and TILT’s will have the option to select either the first or second session and are welcome to join us for Teen Week!

We will also be holding an “Information/Meet & Greet” on Thursday February 28, 2019 at 6:30PM at the El Cerrito Midtown Activity Center.
