Summer is quickly approaching, and the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department is ready to help harried parents with summer plans for the kids. With the multitude of summer camp options, choosing a summer camp schedule can be tough. We'll help parents through this sometimes-complicated process, by providing a place to meet our camp providers, ask as many questions as they desire, all while allowing their kids to play in an inflatable play area or get acquainted with the staff by experiencing some of the hands-on activities available for them to try.
