Summer Camps 2021

Summer 2021 Check Back

The El Cerrito Recreation Department is currently planning a fun and safe summer for our community. We aim to make more camp details, including the camp schedule and fees, available by early March. Like our school-year programs, we will continue to follow guidelines set forth by the County and State Health Departments, and prioritize the best practices for youth programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. As circumstances and guidelines around the pandemic change, plans may need to be adjusted or updated. Updates will be posted here, as well as in our e-newsletter, so be sure to subscribe!
