Summer (Eagles Camp) – REC

 Create the perfect summer camp based on your child’s interests!

Redwood Eagles Camp (REC) is a summer-long enrichment program offered to both current and non-RCS students designed with thematic weeks to challenge and support your child’s many interests. Our REC program utilizes many of the talents and specialties of teachers and coaches at RCS. Our camps will focus on the fundamental skills of various activities and incorporate fun, engaging games to reinforce camper learning.

All adult and high school student staff are vetted through our application process and will be directly supervised by current RCS teachers, coaches and/or staff. Our staff to camper ratio is 1:20 but we endeavor to lower this ratio as appropriate to the themed week.

Weekly themes, activities, etc are published in April for the upcoming summer. Summer Care is also available in addition to or in lieu of REC. Pre-enrollment is required. There is no drop-in/emergency use. Summer rates are weekly.

For more information, see our REC brochure (available in the spring) or www.rcs.edu/rec.
