Summer has arrived, and it’s time to let your kids and grandkids have some fun.

Send your campers (ages 6-11) to the weeklong Junior Explorers summer camp, featuring a different theme each week, adventures to Cameron Park Lake, gymnastics at Tumble Time, and a special field trip to places like Folsom Lake Bowl and Sky High. Sports camps include Challenger Soccer at Christa McAuliffe Park the week of June 17-21, two different basketball camps—one the week of June 24-27, and the other the week of July 8-11—and UK Soccer the week of July 29-August 2. Tennis pros (or newbies) will want to take advantage of lessons, available for ages 4 and up at Cameron Park Lake’s tennis courts.

Adults—don’t feel left out! Get in on the action with an adult softball league, or try out the Chocolate Truffles or Water Bath Canning classes. Is fitness your forte? Sign up for Tai Chi, Zumba Gold Toning, Meditation, Yoga, Water Aerobics, Hula Dance and Ballroom Dance.   

Those interested in birds won’t want to miss the Bird Identification class on June 1 at Cameron Park Lake. Your four-legged friends can get in on the fun too; this month, a Canine Good Citizen class will be held, along with a Senior Dog class on Tuesdays.

On June 11, seniors are invited to the monthly Coffee Tea and Friends event, held from 10-11:30 a.m. in the social room of the Community Center. This free program, sponsored by Visiting Angels, also features guest speakers. This month’s topic is “Local Wildlife in El Dorado County” and will be presented by Sierra Animal Wildlife. Seniors won’t want to miss Game Day—held the fourth Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon and sponsored by the Newcomers Club—or Tai Chi for Better Balance, held Tuesday afternoons from 1-2:30 p.m.  

The pool (now featuring a waterslide!) will also bring lots of opportunities for the community to stay cool this summer. Swim lessons begin June 3, and water aerobics classes are held most weekdays—mornings or evenings. Learn the basic responsibilities of a lifeguard, as well as communication and decision making skills, in the Guard Start Junior Lifeguard program.

Do your little ones like horses? Register them for the Introduction to Horses and Ponies—English-style riding program in June, the three-day kiddie day camp, or the weeklong equestrian day camp (offered throughout the summer).

Don’t forget about the various art camps offered in June and July, or the Pretty Princess and Pop Star Dance camps in early July. Mad Science camps also return this summer. If your kids want to cook, sign them up for Cooking with Kids. If they’d rather babysit, the Babysitting Certification class in June will prepare them to take on the role.

The Foothill Cruisers will host their 15th Annual Car Show June 8 at Christa McAuliffe Park. For more information, email [email protected].

Cameron Park Lake is open for swimming, picnics, boat rentals and more. The 14th Annual Summer Spectacular will take place June 29; gates open at 2 p.m.
