Is there before and after care, and at an additional cost?Please visit our Camp Information page for information about this program. "Bridge Care" is available for select camps to help link AM and PM camps together. Only camps marked with the bridge icon are applicable. After Care is available as well for select camps this summer and is identified by the clock icon.
What if I am early? What if I am late?Please note that children must be picked up immediately after camp ends. In addition, children may not be dropped off early for camp. A fee of $1 per minute will be charged for late pick-up and/or early drop-offs to camp. The fee will be calculated after the first five minutes, and will then include those five minutes at $1 per minute. This late fee will be collected at time of pick up by cash or check. Failure to pay the fee and/or frequent late pick-up or early drop-offs may jeopardize your child’s enrollment in our camp.
Do you offer Financial Assistance?
Payment plans are available to families who need a little extra time to pay in full. All summer camps and swim lessons listed in this guide are eligible for deferred payment. This will allow families to reserve their child’s spot NOW, but apply payment closer to the camp and/or swim lesson start date. STRICT RULES APPLY. Click here for more info.
Do you prorate camps?No, that is something we do not offer.
What if my child has allergies?
At the time of registration, please add your child's allergies to the general notes if registering online. If registering in person, please alert the front desk staff and they will add it to your child's info. Of course it is always best to remind camp staff at drop-off on the first day- but we're sure you already know that.
What if my child needs medication?Please add your child's needs to the General Notes section when registering online, or notify our front desk staff upon in-person registration. Please contact us prior to camp starting and ask to be directed to the camp provider for the specific program your child will be attending. Onsite medications will be monitored by summer camp staff. Please give medications in a sealed bag with the child’s name and instructions to a staff member.
What if my child is sick or unable to attend camp?
Please call us at 650-750-7311 and we will notify the camp leader, especially if it's a field trip day. There will be no refunds for missed days.
How are kids transported for field trips?Children are transported by either Charter Bus or School Bus. Summer Adventure Camp is transported by City Vans.
Can my child be in the same group as their friend?
We encourage children to make new friends at camp, but you can make a request to group. We cannot guarantee groupings, although we will do our best to accommodate.
What is the staff to child ratio?For our own recreation camps (Stulsaft Park Camps, Whatchamacallit, High-5 and Kaboom) our ratios are 1:6 (with 1 camp director) for Preschool Camps, and 1:10 (with 2 camp directors) for our School Age Camps. Specialty camps may vary. Please contact the provider for their ratio information.
What does my child need to bring? What can they not bring?Every camp is different. Please read the descriptions in order to find out what you need to bring or what is included. It is also printed on your receipt once you sign up.
What if my child has special needs?
The City of Redwood City encourages people with disabilities to be included as an active part of the community. Our inclusion philosophy aims not only to physically include individuals, but also provide adaptations, accommodations, and support necessary to allow for social, mental, physical and emotional inclusion.
Individuals who are interested in enrolling in a recreation program should fill out a Registration Form and A Request for Accommodation Form. These forms can be obtained either online above or at any Redwood City recreation facility. After registration / payment is processed, the request for accommodations will be forwarded to our Recreation Staff. Participants will be in direct contact with Recreation Staff and Instructors to assist with reasonable accommodations.
