Summer Camp

RJ Kroc and the Summer Camp Kids

Summer Camps 2015

What are your hopes and dreams for your children and their future?

  • You want them to learn to be Safe
  • You want them to learn the importance of Service to Others
  • You want them to be Caring
  • You want them to develop a Commitment to Learning
  • You want them to learn the importance of Honesty

These are just 5 of the 40 Developmental Assets that are woven into everything we do at The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center. This set of values and skills have been identified by The Search Institute, and are based on decades of child development research. The more of these assets a child has, the more likely they are to be productive, successful and happy adults.

What does this have to do with summer camp?

Summer vacation is 1/4 of each year. That equals three full calendar years by the time a child graduates from high school. Kroc Kids Summer Day Camp is designed to allow your child to continue to grow over the summer, building on the knowledge and success they gained during the school year. Our staff is professionally trained in Safe From Harm and the 40 Developmental Assets. Developing happy, healthy, thoughtful and compassionate individuals is part of the Kroc Center’s mission. It is a place where hopes and dreams are made.

Your child will have so much fun, they won’t even know they are learning!

They will have time in our gym, indoor water park, rock climbing wall, art studio, outside turf field and play ground, and a really awesome place for kids we call The Zone! Children of all abilities are supervised in a safe and positive environment.
