Camp Information

The City of Orinda believes that every child deserves a magical, creative, dynamic, and active break which is why there are various camps to choose from.  Orinda Parks and Recreation Staff are gearing up to offer, once again, an adapted Summer Camp schedule that will continue to meet health and safety guidelines and concerns. We hope you can join for any of our camps this year.

The schedule consists of two-week sessions beginning with Session 1 through 4, and will conclude with a 1-week session that will include AM (9am-12pm), PM (1pm-4pm), and All Day (9am-3pm) options.


CAMPERS CAN BE IN MULTIPLE COHORTS

Campers will be able to register for more than one cohort, meaning children can be signed up for AM and PM camps for an entire session.

CAMP CONNECTOR - BYOL (BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH) ADDED


Camp Connector - BYOL, formerly named Lunch Bunch, will run from 12pm-1pm daily for campers who are in AM and PM camps. City staff trained in COVID safety protocols will supervise Camp Connector, and campers will sit next to their PM cohort peers and away from other PM camp groups to avoid mixing of cohorts. Camp Connector is designated for campers who have registered for an AM and a PM camp (Camp Orinda not included).

CAMP ORINDA RETURNS


Camp Orinda is back! This summer we are offering a modified Camp Orinda from 12pm-4pm daily beginning with Session 3. Lunch is included from 12pm-1pm, therefore campers do not need to be registered for Camp Connector - BYOL. Campers will not travel by bus for field trips like in years past, however they will participate in traditional camp activities at the Community Center, such as arts & crafts, sports, and team-building games. Campers may also take short walking treks to local attractions. City staff trained in COVID safety protocols will run this camp.

There will continue to be moving parts in our summer scheduling as we move forward, but we thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we navigate through this process. We are excited to see camp returners and new faces this summer, and we hope that our families are all safe and healthy!

It is important to note that COVID-19 is still prevalent in Contra Costa County. The Orinda Parks and Recreation Department wants the Orinda community to know that any programs offered through this department will still adhere to and follow all healthy and safety guidelines specified by Contra Costa Health Services, and the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
