Before and after camp Kids’ Zone

Join us for our before and after camp Kids’ Zone. In the morning, children will have supervised free play with a variety of activities provided for them. In the afternoon, our kids’ activities will alternate between free play, guided activities and walking to the playground at Fremont Park on 16th and P Street.

Where do kids who stay all day eat lunch?

We ask parents to pack a lunch for their child(ren). Each day is our schedule depends on the weather. Sacramento summers can get extremely hot, so weather permitting we walk with children to Fremont Park on 16th and P Street. Children first enjoy their lunch and then they have supervised free or guided play on the shaded playground until it is time to return to CASA. If it is too hot, kids eat their lunch at CASA and have supervised free or guided play in one of our classrooms.

About Our Camps

All of our camps have been designed with age appropriate activities to help develop students’ language skills by encouraging them to be creative and thoughtful. We use traditional rhymes, art, music and play to activate imaginations and teach students to appreciate the Spanish language and its many cultures.

We offer three two-week camps from June 27-Aug 4. There is a morning and afternoon session for parents to choose from. The morning and afternoon activities are different, so students can choose to stay all day if they wish. Also, a light healthy snack is provided once in the morning and then again in the afternoon for all students. Students, who choose the all-day option, must bring their own lunch.

WE ARE A SUGAR FREE, NO PEANUT ZONE!
