Summer Camps for Kids, Part 2


Last week, I listed six different local organizations offering summer camps for kids. This week, the list continues.

• Youth Camps at the Sacramento State Aquatic Center. Geared toward children ages 7 to 17, these camps are perfect for the water babies. Depending on their age, kids learn to sail, paddle, wakeboard and more. Most sessions are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and cost between $300 and $400.

• Summer Camp @ CDC. From camps geared toward little fashionistas, budding cartoonists, future leaders and more, there’s a camp offered by the Child Development Centers for your child. Seriously, there are more than a dozen different camps offered at locations around the region including Davis, Antelope, Elk Grove and Natomas. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but you can opt for extended hours. Fees range from $132 to $190 and most camps run June through mid-August. But note: type of camp offered and location varies.

• K.I.D.S. Camp put on by the city of Rocklin. Field trips, arts and crafts, and sports are just some of the fun activities planned at these camps geared toward children entering kindergarten through sixth grade. The camps take place at the Rocklin Community Center at 5480 Fifth St. in Rocklin. Fees are $40 per day or $195 per week and run from mid-June through mid-August. Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. There’s another option for little ones about to enter kindergarten through second grade: Play Depot, which features age-appropriate activities (games, water play, field trips and more). Fees and hours are the same as K.I.D.S. Camp but Play Depot takes place at Twin Oaks Kids Junction at 2835 Club Drive in Rocklin. For more information, click here or call (916) 625-5000.

• Youth Sports Camps. Sports-oriented youths will enjoy attending one or more of the numerous sports camps offered by the National Academy of Athletics. Weeklong, full-day camps (with a half-day option) are offered throughout the Sacramento area. Prices vary depending the sport and the location of the camp, but to give you an idea: half-day camps (9 a.m. to noon) run about $115 a week and full-day camps (9 a.m. to noon) run about $180 a week.
