Summer Day Camps

Summer Day Camp 2021

Dear RLC Camp Families,

We know many of you are eager for news about our 2021 camp season and we are grateful for your patience as we have taken time to consider multiple scenarios. The safety of our staff and campers remains our number one priority. Based on current case numbers in Southern California and the projected vaccination rollout we are optimistically moving ahead with in-person camps for 2021.

Our camper capacity for each session will be reduced significantly to allow for social distancing and any other protocols that may be in place during the summer months. Our plans and protocols will continue to evolve along with best practices and Public Health recommendations. Campers will receive more details about what protocols will be in place closer to the start of camp.

For those who are unable or not yet ready to come on site for camp, we are also offering “Time Travelers Camp in a Box.” Choose either the elementary or middle school level, and receive a box of materials to make a variety of crafts and activities inspired by the various eras of Rancho Los Cerritos’ history. You will also receive a link to a Google Drive folder with written directions and video tutorials for the activities.


Alana Reese, Camp Director

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

We know things can change rapidly and if at any time Rancho Los Cerritos feels it is no longer safe to proceed with in-person camp this summer we will make the difficult decision to cancel in-person camp. If camp is canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic campers will be given a full refund. If you wish to cancel your camp registration, notice must be given in writing via email to at least one week prior to the start of camp.

How to Register for Camp:

You can register for camp starting on May 1st. Click the button on our website that corresponds with the camp you wish to attend, select the number of campers you wish to register using the + and – buttons, and pay the registration fee. We will send an email with the registration documents to the email you use at checkout prior to the start of camp. Please fill out these documents and bring them to the first camp session.
