At Camp Olympia in El Cerrito, CA, we focus on helping your child grow and develop the six behaviors that research shows are among the biggest drivers of happiness and future success.
Positive behaviors are like muscles. They get stronger the more we exercise them. With a ton of support from their teammates and counselors and lots of opportunities to practice around every corner, we promise to send your camper home with bigger, buffer, Big 6 Behavior muscles.

Thanks for your interest in Camp Olympia.
It is with very heavy hearts that we have decided not to open Camp Olympia this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As parents ourselves, we share your agonizing desire to give our own kids a summer filled with all of the amazing things Camp Olympia is designed to provide: joyful, fun-filled sports and games; forever friendships; lifetime memories; tons of opportunities to practice and build character strengths that come from teaming with peers and trying new things; and, last but certainly not least, close relationships with well-trained, amazing counselors.
We will deliver all that and more… in 2021! We hope you will join us then!
Feel free to hang out and learn all about Camp OIympia and provide your email address below so that we can reach out to you when we open registration for 2021.
Be well and stay safe.
