Run for Fun combines kids’ love for sports, nature, creativity and adventure. We pride ourselves on offering a highly personalized experience. Our counselors understand the importance of connecting with the campers on both the individual and group levels. Run for Fun Summer Camp provides memorable experiences that our safe and allow kids to grow. In addition to our hand-picked staff, Dave, Andy and Nikki have a wealth of camp experiences that they bring to camp every day! Kids are drawn to what we offer because we believe and are enthused about bringing sports, nature and play into kids’ lives.

Run for Fun will be hosting an On-Campus Summer Day Camp in Summer ’21. The information below on Adventure Day Camp, which includes field trips, has been planned in the event we are able to safely go on adventures, under Santa Clara County guidelines. For now, sign-ups are only available on our website for “On-Campus Summer Day Camp.” If Adventure Day Camp is able to be held in Summer ’21 there will be an “On-Campus” option provided to parents who desire their campers to be in “On Campus” stable groups ONLY.

Operations During the Pandemic

Run for Fun Camps has successfully navigated our 11-week, Fall Afterschool Camps by following Santa Clara County & CDC Guidelines. This experience has given us a strong understanding of how we can safely serve youth during Summer 2021. Campers will be in stable groups of no more than 16 kids during the session (number may change based on County directives). Upon arrival at camp our Administrative Staff will administer a daily questionnaire and temperature check to each camper and staff upon entry. Campers will be distanced within their groups, and will wear face coverings. During athletic games that require full running face coverings come off (per County directives). Campers / Staff hand sanitize before and after all games. Equipment is thoroughly cleaned and each Coach has their own ball bag dedicated to their Campers. We utilize pool noodles as “distance checkers,” for safe distance and tagging throughout games!

Camp Programming for Adventure Day Camp

Each week of camp features two to three adventures with all other days hosted at our main elementary school location (see chart below for location details). On campus, kids are assigned to counselors by age group for morning activities. Morning activities include classic field games such as capture the flag, gaga ball, dodgeball, soccer, street hockey, scottish handball, knockout and many more. Additionally, there is a morning craft table set-up in the shade that includes friendship bracelets, jewelry-making, sand art, pipe cleaner animals and tissue paper bouquets. Campers can choose to craft at any time during the morning. After lunch we offer play-by-choice, where campers can pick from three to four awesome stations with rotations offered every 40 minutes.

A typical Adventure day includes 30 minutes of play on campus before loading the bus for our destination. Adventure Camp uses a professional bus company to transport campers. Additional staff members, including lifeguards, are present on Adventure Days to ensure camper safety. Detailed information on Adventure locations and activities are located below.
