WCEF's Guide to Summer Camps 2018

Summer is just around the corner! Whether your child is interested in science, math, sports, or adventure, please consider those camps who give to your child's school through the Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF).
Adventure Day Camp

Adventure Day Camp is a traditional day camp for children ages 3-15 years old. In a low pressure, relaxed atmosphere, children gain confidence and skills in a wide range of camp activities, including arts, sports, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, tennis, horseback riding, archery, climbing, drama, music, hiking, overnight camping, and much more! Children are assigned to small groups with one adult Counselor and one assistant.  For children ages 3 & 4 that are not quite ready for the complete experience of ADC, we offer a preschool program. 
 
We have three sites: The Seven Hills School in Walnut Creek, The Dorris-Eaton School in San Ramon and Alamo.  For the Walnut Creek and San Ramon locations, we offer transportation serving:  Moraga, Orinda, Lafayette, Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, Livermore and the 680 Corridor from Martinez to Pleasanton.

Wheel Kids Bicycle Club is an exploration destination for kids! We offer three different bike riding camps for kids of all ages and skill level. From learning the basics of riding to more advanced like jumps, each week of camp is unique to the kids enrolled.

Most weeks consist of playground fun, water fights, pool visits, art studio time, wherever the kids let their bikes take them. The older more advanced riders use BART to continue their exploration on bicycle.
