Kroc Parents,

We know you are anxiously waiting for information about camps. The Director of Operations, Danielle Emery, has met with the Mayor and will be following guidelines and regulations on camps for the safety of our community and the children. At this time we are planning on holding Summer Day Camp from 8 am – 5 pm, Monday – Friday, beginning June 1st. While there may be fewer field trips and groups of kids will be limited, we look forward to having fun with your kiddos. As things are still very fluid and changing we appreciate your patience while our staff works out all the details. The Coordinators are working to see if they can safely hold their specialty camps, stay tuned for these details in the upcoming days.

To register your child for camp, follow the link to our Camps page.

Dear Kroc Members,
As circumstances related to COVID-19 evolve, like many others, we have had to revise our plans accordingly. Due to the fact that member operations will remain closed until all applicable mandates are lifted, we are freezing all accounts and waiving membership fees until we are able to reopen. This waiver will apply to all memberships with an active or hold status. Any previous purchase will still be honored once we are able to reopen. At that time all current active and hold accounts will be reactivated.

Even though we are closed to members we are providing online group exercise classes and other activities free to all from our Facebook Page and are developing other options for you. The Salvation Army is working to give back to the community
