Due to unforeseen circumstances, the City of El Cerrito was informed that we are no longer able to utilize the Old Portola Campus to host our Summer Camps. Fortunately, we were able to quickly strategize and now have new locations for your camper to enjoy their scheduled camps. Some camps will be held at the El Cerrito Community Center, Castro Clubhouse, Harding Clubhouse and Prospect Sierra School. Camps that were originally scheduled at the El Cerrito Community Center, Cerrito Vista Park and Korematsu Middle School Gym have not been affected. Please refer to the attached grid to see where the camp has been moved.

Castro Clubhouse: 1420 Norvell St.
El Cerrito Community Center Hall, Skylight Room, & Garden Room: 7007 Moeser Ln.
Prospect Sierra Middle School: 960 Avis Dr. (see attached Map for details)
