Kids? summer camp registrations starting
Submitted By Lt. David Kim
It?s never too early to think about summer. Especially if you?re a kid, or the parent of one. The Salvation Army is opening registrations for its seven-week Kids? Summer Camp Program on Tuesday, April 10. The camp is aimed at children in grades 1 through 8 and sessions will meet 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays June 18 through Aug. 3.
Mornings begin with a Homework & Tutoring Class when students can attend to their vacation homework, supervised by our own teacher. The Salvation Army will also provide each student with an academic workbook and instruction. In addition to lunch, snacks and refreshments will be available during morning and afternoon recesses when campers can play sports or work on arts-and-crafts projects.
Afternoons offer beginners? music lessons for keyboard, trumpet and bucket drums. Ribbon dancing will also be taught. Field trips take place each Thursday. Visits include The Salvation Army?s KROC Center in Suisun City, Newark Community Park, Silliman Aquatic Center, Lake Elizabeth in Fremont, Golfland in Milpitas, along with a movie and popcorn day.
A $620 camp fee, payable at registration, includes the cost of programs and materials, field trips, lunch, snacks, beverages and a T-shirt for kids. Students must be picked up each day by 3:30 p.m. An Extended-Care Program, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. weekdays, is available for students who need to stay later, at a cost of $30 per child each week.
Registrations will be accepted while space is available and should be made in person starting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 10 at The Salvation Army Community Center, 36700 Newark Blvd., Newark. For details, call Mei at (510) 793-6319 extension 204.
