This camp is designed to be a resource for low-income and disadvantaged youth and their families.

Due to limited spaces in this program,  Eureka Parks & Recreation has created a competitive application process for families based on level of need that will secure them a spot for the entire summer.

Details:

  • Camp runs June 19 through August 11
  • Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM
  • Ages 5-12
  • Deadline to pick up application is May 26

Families will be made aware if they have been chosen to have a secured spot in Camp Cooper by Friday, May 12th
