COME JOIN THE ADVENTURE!!!  Pacifica Summer 2020 Adventure campers will experience some of the best parts of childhood including making new friends, learning independence, and going on endless adventures with the most passionate, creative, and qualified staff. Every day the campers will be a part of a community that encourages trying new things, kindness, exploration, cooperation, and having fun! Weekly activities include games, crafts, sensory play, science experiments, and camp songs. This year’s camp will have a new twist as we change things up to keep everyone healthy and safe.  We will be sorting campers into groups of 12 based on family units, friends, and similar age groups.  We will do our best to accommodate desires to be together with friends to the best of our ability under the guidelines that need to be followed.  All registered campers will be receiving follow-up instructions and room assignment the week before camp starts so that you are aware of the procedures that we have put in place this year.


The following procedures have been created to meet the needs of the community during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  These protocols meet the standards of the latest Public Health Order as of May 15, 2020. Modifications to these procedures may be made as the Public Health Order changes.

Childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages are allowed at this time. To the extent possible and compliant with any licensing requirements, these operations must also comply with the following conditions:

1. They must be carried out in stable groups of 12 or fewer children (“stable” means that the same 12 or fewer children are in the same group each day and for at least three consecutive weeks).

2. Children shall not change from one group to another or attend more than one childcare establishment, summer camp, and other educational or recreational instruction or program simultaneously.

3. If more than one group of children is at one facility, each group shall be in separate room or space that cannot be accessed by children or adults outside the stable group. Groups shall not mix with each other.

4. Providers, educators and other staff cannot serve more than one group of children and shall remain solely with that group of children during the duration of the childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational institution or program.

5.  Campers from the same family must be placed in the same camp or group.

6.  A release of liability form must be signed before camper each camper is allowed into camp.

  • Parents Night Out Events
