RecDesk Online Registration

The Summer Safari Day Camp Program is for children between the ages of 6 and 12. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. Opening day for the 2017 season is Monday, June 12th. The last day of camp will be Friday, August 18th. Full days, half days, and drop-in’s are welcome. Summer Safari Day Camp has been providing recreational and educational opportunities in Ukiah for more than 30 years. Indoor and outdoor facilities are utilized at Todd Grove Park.  A typical day at camp includes arts & crafts, sports, games, cooking, songs, skits, movies, swimming and educational components. Walking field trips and Parents Night Out are scheduled each summer. Your child can participate in the ever-popular “Theme Weeks”. Our counselor to camper ratio is 1 to 8.  All counselors are CPR, First Aid, and AED certified. Their background checks include a formal employment application, reference checks, interviews, and live scans. Many of them are veteran counselors who return season after season, some having as much as seven seasons of experience. If your child is a non-swimmer, swim lessons are available during day camp hours. We will be happy to escort your camper to and from the pool for their lesson. Just complete the swim lesson registration at the pool and let our staff know. Our campers enjoy a full hour of pool time each day separate from public swim.

The municipal swimming pools are located directly adjacent to the day camp program. Our Lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors are American Red Cross Certified and have many hours of training and many years of experience. They also participate in extensive weekly training. Our pool offers morning and evening swim lessons of various levels and the pool staff and day camp staff work together, ensuring the safety of all our campers and pool patrons.

Packets and rates are available at the Recreation Office located at 411 W. Clay Street, Ukiah, (707) 463-6231.  After June 9th, please contact the Summer Safari Day Camp office at (707) 467-2854.
