Menlo Park is excited to welcome you to the Summer Camps at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center! Campers days will be filled with outdoor and team games, arts & crafts, field trips, sports, gymnastics, special events, swimming, cooking, and much more! Campers will have the chance to explore Menlo Park, learn new skills, develop new friendships, and have an exciting summer! You can sign your child up for the entire 8-week long summer camp program or on a week-to-week basis. Camp is from June 20th through August 12th, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm everyday with an extended care option until 6:00 pm. You don’t want to miss out on this great opportunity!
The Menlo Madness Summer Camps was established to fill a community need to provide childcare to parents during the summer and offer adventure and excitement to their children! Campers spend their summers taking field trips, cooking, creating arts & crafts, playing sports, visiting the gymnastics center, swimming, and establishing new friendships!
You may ask… “What makes your camp different from the rest?” Well let’s see...
Exciting weekly themes! Since the moment our camp began, we have generated exhilarating weekly themes to keep things exciting and families enthused all summer long. Each summer we throw new themes into the mix, however we always welcome back the favorites. Yes, we have the ever popular water week, and my personal favorite, Holi-daily, however I would challenge that you’ve been to a camp with a Cereal theme! Want to find out more about what that entails? Join us for it this summer! Our staff caters activities to the theme of the week so it’s never dull and always innovative.
Camper Certificates! We cap off each week of camp with an awards ceremony to which we invite parents. Certificates with photos and counselor signatures are given to campers to commemorate their week and each camper is bestowed with an award.
The Madness Talent Show! Each summer, camp concludes with our annual Talent Show. We set up the big stage, invite friends & family, and cheer on our favorite campers as they share their greatest talents. Whether it’s signing, martial arts, telling jokes, playing piano, dancing, gymnastics, an art gallery, or even roller skating…. our campers always deliver and put on a great show to end the summer!
