Next Steps

A Typical Day

  • Rolling Arrival & Welcome (8:45 – 9:15am) Joyful counselors and rockin’ music meet your camper at the car. Supervised free play with friends gets the day started right.
  • All Camp Huddle (9:15 – 9:30am) Jokes, skits, or a lost and found fashion show bring on the smiles followed by a quick update and pep talk to set the tone for the day ahead.
  • Gaga Ball (9:30 – 10:15am): Your camper’s “team” of 16 plays Israeli dodgeball – an international camp favorite.
  • Snack time (10:15 – 10:30am): Campers fuel up with a snack brought from home or a piece of fresh fruit from our lunch provider.
  • Indoor Soccer (10:30 – 11: 15am): A break from the sun as your camper’s “team” goes inside the gorgeous El Cerrito High School gym for some indoor soccer.
  • Gladiators (11:15 – 12:00pm): After a quick sunscreen break to combat the Bay Area sun, they are playing gladiators and laughing hysterically as they try to knock each other off a low balance beam with swim noodle battle sticks.
  • Lunch & Free Play (12;00 – 1:00pm): A quick 20 minute lunch together with their team before they break out for 40 minutes of free play. Your child might join the always epic lunchtime whiffle ball game, play ping pong or fooseball, or just chill out with friends and trade baseball or Pokemon cards.
  • Basketball (1:00 – 1:45pm): After a brief refresher on crisp chest passes, it’s time to divide up the group and let their inner Golden State Warrior come out.
  • Chillax Time (1:45 – 2:00pm): Time to hydrate, freshen up the sunscreen and rest for an afternoon of fun.
  • Simple Water Rockets (2:00 – 2:45pm): Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from sports and games. What better way to do that than assembling and blasting off simple water rockets.
  • 9 Square in the Air (2:45 – 3:30pm): It’s a mash up of a couple of favorites: volleyball and four square except now there are nine squares and all the action is in the air!
  • Team Meeting (3:30 – 4:00pm): Popsicles! While that may be the first thing they tell you about in the car, so much more happens. We relive the day’s amazing plays, celebrate new “records” set, share inspiring acts of teamwork and kindness, and give special props for effort, composure, and examples of playing with honor. And, maybe. . .on a rare occasion. . .a counselor gets a cream pie in the face.
  • Pick-up/Extended Care (4:00 – 6:00): We go out like we came in with an efficient, quick moving exit full of music, smiles, and high-fives. 

Welcome!

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.

In gratitude,
Jason Singer
Owner & Director of Camp Olympia
