My son LOVES Aurora Camps! He has been coming for years and every year there are new art, music and sport camp offerings for him to choose from. The camp instructors are experienced adults who know their craft very well and who provide an engaging and diverse camp experience for my son. And Aurora’s camps are run by loving people whom I can trust to take great care of my son.

Online Registration will begin on Thursday, January 15. Campers can attend Camps at Aurora for the entire summer or for individual week-long sessions. Theater Arts Camp requires campers to sign-up for a minimum of three weeks.

Extended Care

Extended care is offered beginning at 8:00 am each day and again from the end of camp until 6:00 pm. The cost is $9.45 per hour charged in half hour increments. We offer a 15 minute grace period before camp begins and after camp ends at no charge. You will be billed for any time used at the end of each month. All children need to be signed in and out of camp or extended care by an authorized adult. Please enter through the playground gate. A check in table will be set up inside the playground.

Payment Options

You may choose to pay for your camp tuition either in full at the time of registration or with a monthly payment plan. Payment in full may be made via an electronic check withdrawal (e-check) or credit card. The monthly payment plan requires an automatic withdrawal from a bank account or credit card to be set up at registration. We will divide your payments into equal amounts for each month, charged on the 15th of each month, ending on June 15th. While your monthly payment amounts will be consistent, they will vary depending on when you register and the number of months left until June. Full details are on the registration site. Please feel free to email any questions to the camp director, Josh Johnson or call him at (510) 428-2606 x 208.


Your camp tuition is refundable minus a processing fee ($25 for a full day camp session, and $50 for a theater camp session) up until 4 weeks before a session begins. At the 4 week mark your tuition becomes non-refundable.
