Parents, are you looking for a fun and safe summer experience for your 7-10-year-old? Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks is getting creative amid COVID-19 and offering a new summer program called Summer Daze Day Camp and Care. Join us this summer at Howarth Park or Steele Lane Community Center for arts, crafts, hiking, games, stories, movies, canoeing, archery and much more! Groups of up to 12 children, and staff assigned just to them, will stay together throughout the week. Family members remain together as well and may make one friend request. While fun is still the goal of this summer program, we will have fun safely with COVID-19 precautions firmly in place. We are closely following all CDC protocols and Sonoma County Health Orders to present these summer programs for our Santa Rosa community.
