Welcome To Summer Camp at

The Seven Hills School in Walnut Creek!

Adventure Day Camp is a traditional summer camp experience that centers on the bonding and memories that are formed with fellow campers and our amazing staff.  We promote group unity and hope to create an atmosphere where campers feel a sense of "family" within these groups and within the camp as a whole. Our program is fairly structured for weeks 1 & 2 of each session. During this time, campers will be offered the opportunity to participate in all of their available activities. It's during week 3 that we offer all of our activities as CHOICE OPTIONS during each afternoon. At this point of the session our campers know what they love so now it is time go explore!

Horseback Riding & Exploring Nature

Horseback riding is certainly a camper favorite here at ADC!  Campers entering

3rd - 9th grade will be offered a Horseback Riding CHOICE at least once a week. Campers entering PreK - 2nd grade will experience our amazing Miniature Horses 1 time during the first 2 weeks and will then have the choice to ride our full size horses during week 3.  All lessons are taught as a basic introduction to Horseback Riding and no experience is necessary.

 

We love our campers to experience the wonder and beauty of the outdoors. Throughout each sessions there are countless opportunities to join our Nature Club, Gardening Club, or to create wonderful Nature themed art projects.

Overnight Campout

On the 2nd Thursday / Friday of each Session, Adventure Day Camp will embark on our Overnight Camping Trip, held in Bort Meadows Group Site within Anthony Chabot Park.  

 

We depart at 1:00 pm on Thursday and return back to The Seven Hills School on Friday at 11:30 am.  Before arriving at Bort Meadows, our Prek – 2nd graders will visit the Steam Trains in Tilden Park while the rest of our campers visit Lake Temescal in Oakland.  Although we encourage all campers to attend, we do recognize this might be a difficult decision for some campers and parents. If you feel your child is not yet ready for this amazing event, we do offer the option to pick up your child after dinner or during our campfire. 

 

Please note: This is the only program available for Thursday afternoon and Friday morning of week 2. If your child does not attend the campout in any capacity, they must be picked up by 12:00 pm on Thursday and they may be dropped off again after 11:30 am on Friday. There is an additional cost for this event.

More information will be emailed during week 1 of your child’s session.

Our campers love to build, be creative, and learn "how" and "why" something works.  We offer a large variety of projects and activities to satisfy this passion.
