After your register, you will get an emailed receipt. In a separate email, you will be sent a form to enter your camper’s details and schedule your pick up time for your camp kit.

Note from the Camp Director

Hello everyone,

I hope this message finds you and yours safe and well. It’s been a strange few months, to say the least. But as Long Beach and Rancho Los Cerritos move to begin re-opening, I have been thinking about what this will mean for summer camp.

Every summer for many years, children have flocked to Rancho Los Cerritos to participate in engaging, interactive, historically inspired day camps. Camp has been the highlight of my year every year since I began working at RLC, and I was looking forward to Summer Camp 2020.

It became clear, however, that in the “new normal” of the phased reopening of California, and Long Beach, camp could not proceed exactly as it has for so many years. After careful thought and consideration, and with the safety of our campers, volunteers, and staff as our primary concern, we have decided to have virtual summer camps this summer.

While I would have loved to see all of our campers in person this summer, I am excited about this new camp format that will allow us to interact and engage with one another while staying safe in the comfort of our own homes. Each camp day will include a combination of live Zoom activities, as well as crafts and games for campers to work on independently. There will also be special guests each day to share knowledge from a variety of backgrounds. Although this is a new format, camp will still have the same spirit of educational fun that it has had in the past!

The camp activities are designed to take place between 9am and 3pm, Monday-Friday.

Time Travelers Camp: July 13-17, ages 5-10

Nature Camp: July 27-31, ages 5-10

Re-plugged: August 10-14, ages 11-13

More information will be added to the camp page of the website as it is available ( Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions (email preferred)!

Best wishes for a happy and healthy summer,
