Camp Overview 2022

About our Camps

Whether we are playing a spirited game of dodgeball or sitting around a campfire singing and roasting marshmallows, our staff will make sure your children are engaged and having the time of their lives. We pride ourselves on hiring an enthusiastic, highly-trained staff who love what they do. Run for Fun Camps offers a variety of experiences during the Summer. This Summer features 4 weeks of Adventure Day Camp AND Run for Fun Day Camp. Both programs are held at Juana Briones Elementary in Palo Alto and parents may choose the “Adventure” and/or “On-Campus” Day Camp tracks. These camps will be led June 6th – July 1st. Run for Fun Overnight Camp Pinecrest will be held July 2nd-July 8th and July 9th-15th; OR join us for two straight weeks of overnight fun July 2nd – 15th. Safety precautions will be in place to follow local County and CDC guidelines at the time of camp.

Run for Fun has successfully operated camps during Summer 2021, giving us strong idea of how to provide engaging activities in a safe environment. We will continue to follow State, County and CDC Guidelines in Summer ’22. Parents may freely swap from Adventure Day Camp to RFF Day Camp and vice versa up until May 1st (space permitting).
