What we offer:
Community: a small kid-to-adult ratio and the staff you know and love. Giant camps can be intimidating. We offer all the variety and fun of a bigger camp without sacrificing community and one-on-one attention.
Active play: With a plethora of local field trips and community exploration, the adventure never ends. We offer an array of exercise and outdoor equipment for kids who just need to burn energy. Team up and try to propel the Run Mat (a human hamster wheel!), go ground-surfing on our rolly-boards, test your balance on our rainbow cup stilts, and more!
Agency and choice for kids: Explore art, cooking, music, coding, yoga, and more at our teacher-led mini-camps, or do your own thing – we’ll always have a rotating selection of materials and games to challenge and inspire.
Kid-approved healthy treats: Fresh fruits and veggies every day, balanced snacks to fuel your play

Meet our staff!
A south Sacramento native, Amanda Burke is a graduate of UC Berkeley, with majors in Art and American Studies and a focus on Race, Culture and Identity in Urban Schools. She has taught art at various elementary schools in the East Bay, worked as an illustrator for the Daily Californian, and co-taught a children’s literature writing and illustration class. Amanda is grateful to have worked with local programs that prioritize under-served youth, social justice, and community involvement.
Amanda strives to be a compassionate ally to her students. She seeks to help her students uncover opportunities for critical thinking and unconventional learning in everyday life. As an educator, she acts as a facilitator, engaging student interests and providing the support they need to become empowered, active learners. In her spare time, Amanda likes to scavenge for and re-purpose street finds, get lost in new videogame worlds, read children’s literature, cook cheap and delicious food, explore the Bay via walking and public transit, and of course, make art.
Amanda is Co-Director of the CM Afterschool program and tutors K-8 reading and writing, as well as AP English, AP US history, AP world history, and executive functioning.
Ariana Frazier graduated from Occidental College in 2012 with a B.A. in English and Comparative Literary Studies and a minor in Asian Studies. The Berkeley native recently moved back to the Bay from Japan, where she spent four years teaching English. Ariana’s interest in education first began in high school when she tutored in a local afterschool program. She continued working with children throughout her college years. Afterwards, her love for travel and wanting to learn more about her family heritage led her to Japan. Ariana is working towards becoming a teacher as well as studying to become a Japanese-English translator. When not working, you can find Ariana traveling, reading books and manga, watching anime, cooking, and reacquainting herself with the lovely Bay Area.
