Santa Cruz Day Camp

Age Groups

Day Camp warmly welcomes boys and girls entering kindergarten through eighth grade, and we offer flexible and convenient options for our young campers:

  • 3 day camp option for campers Kindergarten¬†to the 2nd Grade (M/W/F or T/Th/F)

Campers are assigned to co-ed Age Groups based on grade and age as follows:

  • Kindergarten and First Grade
  • Second Grade
  • Third and Fourth Grade
  • Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Grade
  • Eighth Grade (Senior Campers)

We give the groups fun names like Punk Rock Pancakes, Country Bagels, Burly Big Feet, Superstars and Lemonheads, rather than associating them by grade names. These dynamic groups spend much of their camp time as a unit, allowing campers to grow together and forge lasting friendships.

Is Your Camper Planning to Come to Camp with a Friend?

Campers coming to Day Camp with a Friend in the same grade can submit a request to be in the same group. These requests should be made as soon as you register, at a minimum two weeks before the camp session starts.  If you did not make a request during the application process, please call or email our office to add the request.
