Blue Camp participants who are Bears (ages 9-10)  and Grizzlies (ages 11-12) can look forward to camp days full of new adventures, time with friends, and digging deeper into their interests.  Bears and Grizzlies participate in three morning and three afternoon activities. Campers can try out a new sport, spend time doing arts and crafts, or explore the natural wonders of the Berkeley Hills above the Clark Kerr campus at UC Berkeley.

Bears and Grizzlies who enroll in two-week sessions will have the opportunity to customize their camp day by selecting the elective activities they want to participate in. For those in one-week or drop-in sessions, campers are assigned to a group that rotates together through our most popular Blue Camp activities. . 

Please note: Some activities like archery and Magic: The Gathering are available only for those who enroll in two-week sessions. 

The table below shows the  Elective Activities that campers in two-week sessions can choose from. Campers can select their “top 10” elective choices at the time of registration. It is recommended that popular activities such as swimming, and Magic the Gathering are selected as first of second choices to ensure your camper gets priority for that activity.
