Summer Camp Scholarships

Summer CampEach year hundreds of local children attend one of the outstanding summer camps offered by the Belvedere-Tiburon Joint Recreation Department. These camps, staffed with enthusiastic trained professionals, offer attendees a joyful and enriching experience, building friendships, memories and a sense of community.

In an effort to ensure that all Peninsula children have the opportunity to attend a Belvedere-Tiburon Joint Recreation camp this summer, the Belvedere Community Foundation provided a $3,000 grant to the Recreation Department’s scholarship fund for 2007.

The Recreation Department offers a wide range of top quality camps:

Camp Miwok, for children ages 3 ½ through 5, provides a fun and nurturing introduction to summer camp. Families appreciate the opportunity for children to make new friends in the community in this safe and engaging environment.

Summer CampParadise Park Camp, for children 5 through 8, is designed to encourage exploration, inspire creativity, develop new skills and build self-esteem. Campers sing their favorite camp songs, perform skits, create imaginative arts and crafts projects, play sports and games, fish from the dock and explore the sandy beach, all under the supervision of an experienced staff.

Angel Island Camp, for children 7 through 12, is the camp kids always come back to. Grouped by age, campers travel by ferry to Angel Island where they explore different areas each day. With a new theme each week and kayaking on Fridays, many children come back week after week.

Specialty Camps, offering chess, golf, drama, baseball, basketball, soccer and music, guarantee the Recreation Department has something for everyone.
