2024 Session Themes & Locations

Camper Registrations – Registration is Open!

Please note that Adventurers campers must be five years old by the first day of the camp session you are registering them for. Explorers campers must be eight years old by the first day of the camp session you are registering them for.

Camp Groups

Each of our two camp groups, the Adventurers and the Explorers, will include campers, middle school Camp Ranger helpers, high school Leaders In Training, KIDS for the BAY year-round Educators, Summer Camp Leaders and Junior Camp Leaders.

Locations

This summer, we will be based in beautiful Tilden Park in the Berkeley hills at Orchard Picnic Area. We will visit Wildcat Creek, Lake Anza and the Little Farm in Tilden. We will also have special location days that enhance our unique weekly themes, including Berkeley Marina by the San Francisco Bay, Strawberry Creek at UC Berkeley Campus, Codornices Park, and Blake Gardens in Kensington. For all locations, parents will drive their own campers, and drop off and pick up at all locations. We will also take some exciting bus field trips from the drop-off/pick-up locations with buses provided by KIDS for the BAY. Special bus field trip sites will include Lake Merritt in Oakland, Crab Cove in Alameda, an ocean beach in Marin County, the Oakland Zoo and the Exploratorium.

Health and Safety Guidelines

KIDS for the BAY will follow all city and county guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our campers, staff and families.
