What to Wear:
Please dress your child in clothes that are comfortable and you don't mind getting messy. We will be spending a lot of time playing games and doing arts & crafts. Athletic shorts and shirts are ideal.
Closed-toed shoes are required and athletic shoes are preferred.
SUNSCREEN! Again we are an outdoor camp so packing sunscreen is an absolute MUST!
Optional: hats, sunglasses, jacket for the morning.
Camp t-shirts are required to be worn on all off-camp field trips.
What to Bring:
A healthy lunch and two snacks (morning and afternoon). The program will not provide food for your child so make sure to pack enough for the whole day! We highly encourage growing food and want to ensure your camper has enough energy for activities.
We have mosquitoes! So be sure to apply and pack bug spray.
SUNSCREEN! Please apply some before arriving at camp. Counselors take frequent sunscreen breaks, but it is important to come to camp protected already.
A backpack to hold all of your child's belongings. Put your child's name on ALL personal belongings.
Please do not bring personal electronics or toys. We have tons of materials and activities to keep your campers active and entertained the entire day.
We have many campers join us that are not strong swimmers. All campers are required to take a swim test if they want to swim in the deep end of the pool, go off of the diving board, or use the inflatable obstacle course – this is optional. Swim tests are administered by the lifeguards. If campers do not pass the swim test or do not wish to take the swim test, they receive a red colored wristband to wear at the pool so staff can ensure they stay in the shallow end. If campers do not wish to swim, we also have staff stationed in the grass area where campers can relax in the shade.
We are proud to be a phone-free camp! Campers are required to keep their phones in their backpack from the time they sign in to the time they sign out. If they need to use their phone to contact a parent/supporter or take photos on a field trip, they may do so but must notify a staff member. We have a camp phone with us at all times for parent/supporter communication and photos.
East Bay Explorers offers a 3-day (Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday) and 5-day option. We highly encourage campers to attend camp each day to experience all of the activities we offer. If your camper will be missing a day, arriving late, or being picked up early, please let the staff know during drop off or pick up time. Campers must arrive on time for field trips - we will not hold a bus for a late camper. We do not offer partial refunds for missing days.
