Make the Difference in the Life of a Child

Send a Kid to Camp

Each year your donations make it possible for nearly 9,000 disadvantaged youth to take part in camps, swimming lessons, and outdoor activities.  Participants who would not normally have the resources to enjoy these programs, gain access to free bus transportation and organized outdoor activities. Below is a quote from a participant …

 “It helps me learn the skills needed to camp. It also helps me meet new friends and enjoy good food and learn skills to keep me safe in the park.”

 Below are a few of the unique youth programs we offer through the Youth Development Program:

  • Park'n It Day Camp offers five separate weeks of fun in the sun that kids can choose from, and features Regional Park explorations, swimming, fishing, hiking, arts, crafts and games.
  • Individual swimming lessons and an Open Water Junior Lifeguard Program, where kids ages 9 to 15 can learn water safety/rescue skills, first aid, and CPR in a fun and challenging environment.
  • Camp Arroyo is a state-of-the-art “green” facility designed specifically for teaching 4th and 5th grade students about the environment through a fun, hands-on curriculum where they can challenge themselves to climb a rock wall, go on a hike, work in an organic garden, create nutritious meals, and compost green waste.
