Summer Adventure Camp

LifeMoves | Summer Adventure Camp is a marvelous on-site camp (with great field trips!) for homeless children at the LifeMoves family shelters throughout Silicon Valley and the Peninsula. Subscribe to our blog and stay updated as we share highlights from camp: https://lifemovessummercamp.wordpress.com

The camp is supervised by LifeMoves employees, but staffed by volunteer high school and college-age students. Campers engage in fun, educational activities on-site and take weekly field trips to national parks, museums, and theatrical performances and culminates in a super-fun Field Day where all the children from all seven LifeMoves programs come together for a last blast.

Summer Camp Dates are : June 20 – August 5, 2016
