A day at summer camp:
Our days will have the idyllic summer feel.

Mornings will begin with creative arts time including water color, sculpting dough, building blocks, dolls, and other materials to inspire your imagination. You choose your activity from among many.


Noontimewill include family-style dining at table with all of our bag lunches. Drinks provided: milk, juice or water. Please do not pack candy.


Afternoons will almost always involve an outing to the park, beach, pool or other cool Santa Cruz spot (Henry Cowell Redwoods, Loch Lomond, Natural Bridges…)

---Transportation will be: on foot, in my ’06 Honda Pilot, or by city bus, depending on the destination and attendance (the Pilot seats 7 passengers). Leave a booster if needed!

At the “pad” we will have bikes, bubbles, berry picking and baking, group games like Dominoes, Connect Four and Scatch. Look out for French/Spanish games like BINGO. Music making will happen spontaneously.


Rainy Days (it happens!) Computer games, movies and video games join the activity choice list.


Nice manners, group cooperation and helpfulness will be cultivated and appreciated. Daily tasks will provide summer campers with a sense of belonging and self-esteem. Positive discipline techniques will be implemented when necessary and working things out between the children will always be our first step. All efforts will be made to integrate summer campers however, if any child should prove to be an ill fit with Perfect Summer Santa Cruz summer camp that child will no longer be invited.
