For the holiday break, the San Carlos Recreation Center (SCRC) is offering Camp Coyote, a day camp for children during two time frames. The first is Dec. 21 to 24, and the second is Dec. 28 to 31. Extended care hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. are available for $125 per four-day session, but not on Dec. 24 or 31. Core Care hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $100 for each four-day session. To register your child and pay online, please visit SDRecConnect.com. Activities include arts, sports, cooking, games and possible field trips. Please register quickly, as five campers are needed to have the activity occur. The counselors are SCRC leaders, who are CPR and First Aid certified. Have questions? Contact the SCRC at 619-527-3443.
The Pee Wee Sports program that was offered earlier was such a success that it’s being offered again. The next session runs from Jan. 5 to Feb. 9 for children 3-8 years old. The cost is $40 for sessions every Tuesday from 4-5 p.m. Activities include basketball, soccer, t-ball and more, with a different activity each week. The sessions will be run by SCRC staff. Register your child online at SDRecConnect.com.
The Spring Volleyball League, for children 8-16 years old, is scheduled to begin registration on Feb. 20. The cost per child is $60 and includes a jersey, award, photo, a banquet and fees for officials.
SCRC also offers classes in tumbling, beginning gymnastics, ballet, introduction to dance, art enrichment (painting) and ceramics. Please contact the center staff at 619-527-3443 with your questions about registering for any of the classes, for which a fee is charged.
We hope you enjoy visiting the San Carlos Park and Recreation Center and the other parks in our community and take advantage of the available programs. If you have questions or need more information, please contact the Rec Center at 619-527-3443. Kristy Wells and her staff will be happy to assist. The San Carlos/Lake Murray Recreation Council meets on the third Wednesday of odd-numbered months at 6:30 p.m. at the San Carlos Recreation Center.
