2020 Summer Camps

Ross Recreation has been a leader in fun summer camp offerings for over 30 years, serving all of the Ross Valley community and beyond! With staff that returns year after year, and a strong emphasis on fun for EVERYone, Ross Rec offers specialty camps for children from age 3 to 15 with all sorts of different interests.

We are pleased to offer selected camps with the following procedures:

  • Different groups/camps will not be interacting with one another, they will not share any spaces or equipment that have not been sterilized between uses.
  • Each camper’s temperature will be taken via no-touch thermometer at drop-off, anyone
    with a fever will be sent home immediately.
  • All staff will wear masks, and social distancing will be implemented as best as possibly within camp groups. Each camp will have hand sanitizer, and disinfectant readily available to them.
  • For the duration of the three-week session, your camper cannot attend camps elsewhere. Additionally, if you go on a vacation mid-camp, we ask that you do not return to camp for the remainder of the session.

*Please bring a lunch and water bottle, wear layers and sunscreen daily.

*This year participants will need to bring their own poles. We do not have any extras available for use, and are unable to share equipment. If you are purchasing a new pole–one for saltwater use is recommended.

*Parent pick up and drop off at location daily. Locations will be given ASAP, but can also change due to tides.

*Each camper’s temperature will be taken via no-touch thermometer at drop-off, anyone with a fever will be sent home immediately.

*All staff will wear masks, and social distancing will be implemented as best as possible within camp groups. Each camp will have hand sanitizer, and disinfectant readily available to them.

*This is a three week session camp, but will only be held M-W of each week. For the duration of the three-week session, your camper cannot attend camps elsewhere. Additionally, if you go on a vacation mid-camp, we ask that you do not return to camp for the remainder of the session.

Holly Hoppin' Nature

Everyday will be a new and exciting experience! We will venture around the lake exploring the magical world around us with our active imaginations running wild & free!

Children need to experience nature and allow them to enjoy the outdoor adventures, explore their limits, take measured risks and learn new skills while making friends along the way.

“It takes time-loose, unstructured dreamtime-to experience nature in a meaningful way. Such time has become a scarce resource, not because we intend it to shrink, but because time is consumed by multiple, invisible forces; because our culture currently places so little value on natural play.” -Last Child in the Woods.
