In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the El Cerrito Recreation Department has adapted our Youth Services model to help meet the care needs of our community. Following guidance from the state and county health offices, our new program models center on the best practices for providing childcare to elementary age youth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the look and feel of our new programs may be different than what families are used to, we remain dedicated to providing services that focus on the health and safety of youth and staff, as well as allows our community to receive essential childcare services while still providing plenty of F.U.N.: Friends, Unity, and New Experiences!
The Recreation Department has launched a new summer program with three Special Camp Sessions. During each session, families are required to commit to the entire session where their camper will remain in the same pod of campers with the same staff the entire time. We are offering an array of City-run and Specialty options in hopes of meeting the varying needs of our community, including full-day and half-day options for all grades.
