WELCOME TO CAMP MAYACAMA! We would warmly like to invite campers of all ages to the 2012 Mayacama Camp for loads of fun learning! When space is available, campers are welcome to bring a friend for shared memories. As you browse this camp calendar, you may recognize camps or workshops from previous years. Due to popular demand, we have organized the return of some exciting camps which have become summer traditions. Returning campers will find the theme or content of the camps has changed. Combine this with a young person’s annual growth and knowledge, their experiences will be noticeably different year to year. During multiple day camps, we encourage campers to attend all days to gain the maximum benefit and enjoyment. However, we have included daily camp rates for those campers who are only able to attend selected days. If you would like enroll your child in a complete experience of tennis, camp, and swimming, please ask about package pricing. Most camps hours are 10:00 am - 2:00 pm and so for extended activities before or after camps, parents have the option of registering their campers for tennis, swimming, or extended childcare. With summer quickly approaching, we look forward to sharing the summer with you while we EXPERIENCE, EXPLORE, and CREATE together! Adventure Up, Denise Kegerreis, Camp Director 707 569 2908
