 Safety is our top priority 

Health & wellness is more important to our camp families than ever before. The Kroc Center is committed to providing a fun, active, engaging, and safe camp experience for your child. This year you will see a few changes in how camp operates to ensure the safety of campers and staff.

Pick-up & Drop-off

The Drop-Off/Pick-Up process has been updated to maintain social distancing guidelines and includes a morning health assessment.

Socially Distanced

Masks will be worn at all times inside the Kroc Center, with the exception of during meals, while in the pool, and occasionally during socially distanced outdoor activities.

Washing hands

Campers will wash and/or sanitize hands regularly, including upon entering the Kroc Center, before and after meals, and in between any major activity change.

Stay Active
Get active at Camp Kroc!  Staying active is extremely beneficial to a child's health and wellbeing and the best place to do that is at Camp Kroc! From swimming and skating to sports on the field, kids will be moving and playing throughout their time with us.

Christian Values
Add positive Christian values into your childs summer! During our “daily huddles” campers are introduced to positive, age- appropriate accounts from the Bible that convey examples of character development.

Camp Kroc Goals

  1. To facilitate personal growth & safety.
  2. To foster personal character development and respect for others.
  3. To develop skills in activity-specific areas.
  4. To have fun!


 The Camp Kroc and their staff have always been wonderful with our children. They always have a very structured variety of activities and great meals that my kids actually like! I would highly recommend Camp Kroc to any family that I know.

- Camp Kroc Parent

Let's all get along!


  1. Campers must stay with their group at all times.
  2. Campers must keep hands, feet, and all objects to themselves.
  3. Campers must listen to all instructions given by staff.

Your Safety is Our Priority

  • All campers will wash their hands as soon as they enter the building and before/after any major activity change.
  • Masks will be required during camp unless in pool.
  • If your child becomes ill over the course of the camp day, they will be separated from the group of campers, monitored and you will be called to come and pick them up.

 Thank you so much for all you do!

"My daughter has grown so much over the last couple years attending camp. She's an only child in a house of adults this camp has helped her grow into an outgoing outspoken beautiful little girl. She's making lifting memories and friends. Thank you so much for all you do."

We'll be back next summer!

""My daughter loved her summer at camp. She felt safe, comfortable and was always excited to go back. Thank you for providing an atmosphere where I felt comfortable sending my child to over the summer. We'll be back next summer!"

We love this Camp

All staff is very friendly and takes time to get to know every kid. I'm always impressed when I pick up my kids and all counselors say bye to my child by name

Best summer ever!

"Love the organization, lunches, counselors were super friendly. It feels safe and lots of fun stuff for the kids to keep them active."

We always felt safe!

"What a wonderful experience I had with the center. My child was taken care of, included, and loved it from day one. Thanks to all the counselors, Jr. Counselors, and other staff."!

Peace of mind all summer!

"It was my little one's first camp experience! And he had lots of fun and loved the Pee Wee camp. We will definitely sign him up for Winter camp!"

Hello from the Camp Manager

Hello Camp Kroc Families!
I'm Molly, the Day Camp Manager here at the San Diego Kroc Center. I came to The Kroc with 16 years of camp & youth development experience ranging from day camps, overnight camps, outdoor science school, licensed childcare, play care, family camping, and academic enrichment. I spent the last eight years working for the YMCA of San Diego County, most recently serving as the Camp, Childcare, and Adventure Clubs Director for the Rancho Family YMCA. I graduated from Michigan State University, and enjoy the arts, STEM, sports, and the great outdoors.
After successfully running this summer season of Camp Kroc, I could not be more excited about the opportunity to work with campers again this winter at the San Diego Kroc Center! Thank you for trusting us to take care of your children; I look forward to meeting them at camp!

Molly Dillon / Camp Kroc Manager
