East Avenue Camps


East Avenue Camp

Is your child ready for an incredible outdoor camp experience? East Avenue Campers receive a break from the digital world and get to explore the vast urban wilderness of East Avenue Park. From upper East Avenue, in the unincorporated Fairview hills above Hayward, green and manicured rolling hills are dotted with trees and picnic tables in the nearly 27-acre park. Pines, cedars and eucalyptus trees line hiking trails, creeks, wooden bridges and steps carved into hillsides in this 140-acre greenbelt.

East Avenue Camp packs a lot into its 1-week camp sessions. Boundless days of activity and exploration await your child at East Avenue Camp where memories made last a lifetime. Come prepared to be outdoors, get dirty, and have fun!

Participants will need to bring a lunch, snacks, water bottle, and an extra change of clothes and closed-toe shoes daily. Morning and afternoon extended care is also available for additional fees.
