Summer Redwood Eagles Camp

Registration for Summer REC Opens March 1, 2023!

WHAT: Redwood Eagles CARE (REC) is designed for the working family who want their child to be in a safe, secure, loving environment over the summer. Redwood Eagles CAMP (REC) is a summer-long enrichment program designed with thematic weeks to challenge and support your child’s many interests. Students will focus on the fundamental skills of various activities and incorporate fun, engaging games to reinforce camper learning. 

Unless otherwise noted, Summer REC is for local students entering grades 1-8 (Fall 2023). Students entering K will be considered on a case-by-case basis provided they have successfully completed a TK program. Students registered for the 9am-5pm CARE program must bring their own snack, lunch and marked water bottle .  Half day CAMPers must bring their own marked water bottle and as needed snacks.

WHO: Led by Patrick Lee, Director of Specialized Programs at Redwood Christian Schools, our REC program utilizes many of the talents and specialties of teachers and coaches at RCS and other local organizations. 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 1:14 but we endeavor to lower this ratio as appropriate to the themed week.

CALLING RCS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: This Summer’s REC program is looking for high school workers (entering grade 9 in the Fall of 2023) to serve our local students. They will be paid at minimum wage and be part of our exciting summer camps/care program. Positions include working with our sport camps and/or our daily care program either for individual weeks or the entire summer (May 30-July 28). Interested students must contact Mr. Patrick Lee at patlee@rcs.edu with questions and/or a summer application. Positions will be awarded as applications are received but deadline to apply is April 15. Interested? Click here!

WHERE:  Summer CARE will be held at the RCS Elementary located in Castro Valley and Summer CAMP will be held at the Middle School & High School campus located in San Lorenzo. These campuses provide campers with plenty of outdoor space as well as a new, state-of-the-art gymnasium. Classrooms may also be used to provide indoor teaching and activities as appropriate.

REGISTRATION POLICIES:  All registrations for our Summer REC will be accepted beginning March 1, 2023, until space is filled.

REGISTRATION TIMELINE & CANCELLATION POLICY: Summer REC registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that some camps may have a maximum occupancy based on staff availability. RCS reserves the right to cancel any camp, with a full refund, due to unforeseen circumstances. We do not accept drop-in campers without prior registration.

Payment is due upon registration. Cancellation, by the camper, any time after registration and up until 2 weeks before the camp begins, will result in a $30 non-refundable fee.  Cancellation within the 2 weeks before camp begins will result in a 50% refund.

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 guidelines (that may change by the summer), all Summer REC programs may be canceled. Therefore, if cancellation is made by RCS, a full refund will be given.

Registration closes two weeks before CARE/CAMP start date. You must cancel your reservation eight (8+) days or more before camp start date or charges will be incurred. One week before camp date, a confirmation email will be sent confirming your spot and giving camp details (what to bring, drop off/pick up, etc.)
