Help your youth have the best summer ever with these exciting program opportunities! 

 

Check out the 2018 SFCASA Summer Camp Guide, which is a list of summer camps available within the Bay Area that we put together. These may be useful resources for youth to partake in to enhance their summer experience. We are continually adding to this list as we learn of more summer camp opportunities. If you know of another great opportunity that is not listed on here, please share them with SFCASA by emailing [email protected]. We also encourage you to research summer camps at different museums; CASA can possibly help with funding.

Below are some specific summer camp opportunities we wanted to highlight:

PRESCOTT CIRCUS THEATRE: JUNE 11-JULY 20

Prescott Circus Theatre has openings for its 2018 Summer Circus and Academic program for youth who attend Oakland public school and are between the ages of 9 and 12 years old. The program runs Mondays-Fridays, 8:30am-3:00pm starting on June 11th and ending July 20th. The 6-week summer program provides youth the opportunity to be challenged through circus and performing arts training to have fun, explore their creativity, and develop as community members and leaders. Project-based academic activities complement the performing arts curriculum to help prepare youth for the coming school year. The cost of the program is free and breakfast and lunch are provided.
