The Office of Physical Education, Recreation & Sports (OPERS) is pleased to announce our third summer offering Sammy Slug Summer Camp. Held on the UCSC Campus at the East Field House, this camp offers 8 one-week sessions and welcomes boys and girls entering 1st through 6th grades. The first session begins on June 29th and there are full and half day, and pre and post camp care options. We are also offering a family/household discount of 20% for each additional camper per family per session.

Each week has a specific theme such that campers that join us for multiple weeks, or the entire summer, will continuously experience new activities. These themes range from scuba instruction, kickball, soccer, and swimming to campus hikes, garden tours, and arts and crafts. All of our camp counselors are experienced UCSC undergraduate and graduate students who focus on camp safety and camp FUN!!!

We are also offering opportunities for local middle school and high school students to join our staff, volunteering as Counselors in Training. CITs benefit from working alongside UCSC student counselors to deliver the camp. They also benefit from a focused hour of daily leadership development, led by an OPERS professional staff member.
