Camp Menlo Afterschool

Menlo Swim and Sport offers Camp Afterschool for kids ages 7-12!


Are your children not ready to let summer go? Are they still full of energy after school? Would you like to have that energy channeled into a fun fitness-focused after school program? We have the answer at Menlo Swim and Sport! We have one of our most beloved camp counselor’s Zoe running this brand new camp offering for the Fall of 2021! This after school camp’s main mission will be exploring and mastering an ever-evolving obstacle course. We will add new obstacles each day to either the slacklines or the ground course. We will also be timing each camper every day and logging their improvement over the camp’s duration to see how far they progress throughout the duration of Camp!

Come and join us in our new community offering!

Zoe Bever / Head Counselor Menlo Afterschool

I was born and raised in Menlo Park and grew up going to both Burgess and Rinconada pools. This is my fifth consecutive summer as a camp counselor and I’m so happy to help other kids make great memories here just like I did.

I’m so excited to introduce our brand new after school camp. It’ going to be super fun and I’m sure the kids will be talking long after it’s over!

Safety Protocols For COVID-19

Yes, childcare facilities are open to all children. In addition to childcare establishments, summer camps, and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages are also allowed to operate. To the extent possible and compliant with any licensing requirements, these operations must also comply with the following conditions:

  • While within their stable group, children and caregivers/counselors are not required to social distance from each other and may share equipment.
  • Children shall not change from one group to another or attend more than one childcare establishment, summer camp, other educational or recreational instruction or program simultaneously.
  • If more than one group of children is at one facility, each group shall be in separate rooms or spaces that cannot be accessed by children or adults outside the stable group. Groups shall not mix with each other.
  • If different groups will access a shared area, they must do so at different times, and any shared equipment or high-touch surfaces must be sanitized between uses.
  • Providers, educators and other staff cannot serve more than one group of children and shall remain solely with that group of children during the duration of the childcare establishment, summer camp, or other educational or recreational institution’s program.
  • Children and staff will be required to wear masks at all times except when in the pool or eating
  • Children and staff will maintain 6 feet of distance
  • Children and staff will be required to stay home if they show any symptoms of illness

The requirements above serve the purpose of limiting the co-mingling of various households and creating stable childcare groups (or in effect, a contained “second household”). To minimize interactions and keep the childcare “households” stable, the Order does not allow a child to attend two separate care settings at the same (for example, a morning camp and a different afternoon camp). Similarly, a caregiver could not care for more than one group of children at the same time, and could not alternate groups (for example, Group A on MWF and Group B on Tu/Thurs) at the same time.
