How to Register for Summer Camp
To register for any summer camps, you must have a San Francisco Recreation and Park Department Family Account. Family Accounts may be created online at sfreconline.org and click “Create an Account”. There is no cost to create a Family Account. When you have created your Family Account, you will be able to register on line and pay with a credit card. You must create your Family Account well in advance of camp registration. We expect all available spaces to be filled by those registering on-line. Staff is available to assist you with on line registration at McLaren Lodge and many San Francisco Recreation and Park facilities. Check and see if your neighborhood is offering Summer Camp registration. Also go to the SF Rec and Park website, go to FIND A CLASS and then scroll down to Day Camp Guide 2020. Read everything. There is very important information that will help you.

You’ll learn to work with sensors, motors, lights, gears and more. Mornings are devoted to digital design and fabrication. Afternoons you’ll get down and dirty with assembly: soldering circuit and parts, drilling, gluing and whatever else it takes to build your robot model.
