For over 25 years, the City of Eureka has been proud to provide a free summer day camp for the community members in need. Now, thanks to a grant from California State Parks, Eureka Parks & Recreation has been able to expand its Camp Cooper program into an 8-hour environmental education day camp.
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.
- Camp runs June 19 through August 11
- Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM
- Ages 5-12
- Deadline to pick up application is May 26
Details for qualifications and criteria each can be found in the application which can be picked up at the Adorni Center (1011 Waterfront Drive in Eureka) and will be accepted through April 30th, 2017. Families will be made aware if they have been chosen to have a secured spot in Camp Cooper by Friday, May 12th
