We have so much to teach your aspiring coder! Jr. Coders will tackle the building blocks of coding through bots and apps so that our junior coders can smoothly transition to higher level of coding easily. They will learn the fundamentals of coding and algorithms through fun and engaging projects on Scratch Jr.! Coding does not always have to happen on laptops and tablets. So we are happy to say that we have unplugged activities planned for each day where kids will still keep their coder hat on, just off the screen. What more! We have plenty of fun games entwined in the camp to keep our junior coders engaged and active. We hope you can join us for this action-packed intro to the coding course. Campers need only bring a lunch (nut-free); we will supply the rest.

After School Program
Grades K-5th

Adventure Zone is operated by the El Dorado Hills CSD Recreation Department with the purpose to provide a safe, caring, and enriching environment for your child after school.

A variety of age-appropriate, and integrated activities will be provided under the guidance of trained personnel. Children are encouraged to be actively involved so that they develop social skills and learn to make responsible choices within the program's structure. District staff provides the children with a variety of opportunities to participate in art, science, and outdoor activities as well as time for homework and fun.

Adventure Zone will also include use of a highly secure online emergency network called ePACT, which collects medical and emergency information for all participants, eliminating the use of paper forms. Using ePACT means staff will be better prepared to deal with any emergency, big or small as well as more accurate, up-to-date, and legible information over the paper forms we’ve used in the past. Because it is web-based, staff and parents can securely access the system via smartphone, tablet, or computer, so it’s always accessible whether at the park or during a field trip.

More information to come soon.

How Can I Register?
