It's Not Too Early to Consider Summer Camps; Redwood City Makes Early Registration Easy & Cheaper at the 'Camp Faire'
Redwood City, CA - February 25, 2004
- Even though winter will be with us for a while, the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department is ready to help harried parents with summer plans for the kids. With the multitude of summer camp options, the question of cost, and just finding the time to organize well in advance, choosing a summer camp schedule can be stressful for parents. Redwood City will help parents through this sometimes-complicated process, and offer a 15% discount on summer camp registration!
To do this, Redwood City will hold its first annual Camp Faire, Wednesday, March 3rd from 6:00 - 9:00 pm, at Red Morton Community Center, 1120 Roosevelt Avenue, in Redwood City. This is a great opportunity to talk to recreation professionals from a variety of camp providers about summer camp opportunities, as well as have questions answered in a one-on-one format. Selected summer camps are discounted 10% until March 31st, but those signing up at the Camp Faire will receive a 15% discount on the price of most camps offered!
The City even thought of what to do with the kids while parents are at the Camp Faire - children’s activities will be provided during the Faire so parents and caregivers can spend quality time with the camp providers. More information about the Camp Faire is available by calling (650) 780-7311.
