Welcome To Summer Camp

at The Dorris-Eaton School in San Ramon!

Our summer camp program at the San Ramon location closely parallels Adventure Day Camp at The Seven Hill School in Walnut Creek. We offer a traditional summer camp experience that includes exposure to a wide variety of mostly outdoor, recreational activities including sports, horseback riding, boating, swimming, archery, art, music, climbing, hiking, and much more.

 

Most activities are offered in a small group setting with campers of similar ages. As the session progresses, campers have the opportunity to choose their activities while still maintaining that important connection to their group and their Camp Counselor.

 

The Dorris-Eaton school provides us with fantastic facilities including field space, playgrounds, several multi-purpose rooms, and

ball courts.

 

During the months of July and August, Adventure Day Camp at Dorris-Eaton offers an afternoon only option for those campers that are participating in the Dorris -Eaton Enrichment Program.  Campers are escorted to their classes from our morning Extended Care (INCLUDED IN YOUR TUITION), then  met after class to be reunited with their camp groups. Main activities included Horsemanship, Boating, Swimming, Archery, Skateboarding, and Biking are offered during our afternoon program.  Campers will have a blast enjoying an afternoon of exciting camp activities and bonding time with their friends and Camp Counselor.
