Summer camps: the great outdoors a stone’s throw away

The East Bay Regional Park District still has scholarships (“camperships”) available for its summer day camps — and it is keen to ensure they all get claimed by under-resourced families.

The camps include Little Farm and Junior Lifeguards camps at Tilden Regional Park, as well as swim lessons at Roberts Park in Oakland.

The photographs here demonstrate just how much fun kids can have spending time in Berkeley’s great outdoors.

Financial aid is available for qualifying families. Applications are due at least three weeks before the week your child would like to attend camp. For more information visit the East Bay Regional Parks website or call 1 (888) 327-2757 (option 2, then 3).
