Renaissance Camp 2017

Now in its 31st year! This fun and educational program for children ages 6-12 brings together art and science in an atmosphere of recreation. Participants will receive hands-on art and science instruction each day from enthusiastic and experienced staff. In addition, participants will have fun taking part in special events, playing organized games and sports, cooking, music, crafts, and making new friends.

Local (e.g. UCSC Arboretum - pictured) are included in registration fees. Special guest speakers and an open house are also included. Please note: the site is closed on all field trip days.

A week before camp begins, parents will receive an information handbook and an emergency information card. Please be sure to review the information in the handbook and fill out the emergency card completely. The emergency card must be given to the site staff on the first day of camp. Send your child with a lunch and snacks each day, wearing closed-toe shoes (e.g. sneakers). Your child must be enrolled in the Camp Program in order to enroll in any of the AM or PM care options, including drop-in AM or PM care.
