Plan an evening with your children or grandchildren and head to the Third Annual Community Campout at Cameron Park Lake from Saturday, July 12, to Sunday, July 13. Bring your camping gear and let others do the cooking. Enjoy a barbecue dinner, crafts, campfire songs, story telling, plus breakfast in the morning. Pre-registration is required.  

Are your kids (ages 6-12) still looking for things to do this summer? The Junior KidzCamp program at the Cameron Park CSD offers weeklong activities include drama, arts and crafts, gymnastics at Tumble Time, visits to Cameron Park Lake, a special field trip and more. 

Many other youth programs are also open now, including youth hula, Foothill All-Star Elite Cheer program, tumbling and gymnastics; additional youth camps are Kiddie Horse Day Camp, Equestrian Day Camp, Mad Science Camps with various themes, Spanish Camp, and a Fine Arts Camp, which will allow artists to learn hands-on techniques. Sports camps/clinics include Skyhawks Camps, flag football, volleyball, Hoops Summer Basketball Camp (July 14-17), Challenger Soccer Camp (July 14-18) and UK International Soccer Camp (July 28-August 1). Co-ed futsal soccer training is being offered for the first time on Monday evenings. Two-week tennis sessions—taught by Andrew Webb and held at Cameron Park Lake—are offered throughout the month for ages 3 and up. Golf lessons are also available for youth and adult at Bass Lake Golf Course.  

Adults—don’t feel left out! Get in on the action with an adult basketball league or drop-in sports at the gym. You can also try meditation, Zumba Gold, hula dance, tai chi, ballroom dance, ukulele lessons, CPR, gardening, Japanese calligraphy, yoga and much more. Round up your friends on July 18 for a limo tour to Jackson Rancheria. 

On July 8, seniors and caregivers are invited to a morning of fun, games, special speakers, ice cream and games at the monthly Coffee, Tea and Friends, held from 10-11:30 a.m. in the social room of the Community Center. This month’s topic is  “Recycle Something Old Into Something New.” Juliette from El Dorado Nursery will show attendees how to create a planter from a basket or can. Later, from 1-3 p.m., play bingo. On the fourth Tuesday of the month, July 22, join the Cameron Park Newcomers Club for games from 10 a.m. to noon. 

The Community Center pool is open! Swim lessons for all ages, water aerobics classes and a Junior Lifeguard program, as well as public and lap swim are open to the public. Cameron Park Lake is also open for swimming, tennis, exercise, picnics and boat rentals.
