Hello from the Camp Manager

My name is Molly and I am the Day Camp Manager here at the San Diego Kroc Center. First, thank you so much for choosing Camp Kroc and for trusting us to take care of your children. I am so excited to see some familiar faces as well as meet some new friends this summer! As the daughter of two elementary school teachers, I grew up immersed in the world of youth development. I have spent over 16 years working in child & youth development programs including day camp, overnight camp, licensed childcare, enrichment programs, family camping, and outdoor science school. I graduated from Michigan State University (GO SPARTANS!) and am extremely passionate about spending time with family, outdoor recreation, STEM learning, reading, and performing arts!

I couldn’t be more excited to work with your campers here at the Kroc Center this summer! I am also very proud to announce that we have added 20 fun and exciting new camps for your children to enjoy. We can’t wait to see your children at camp!

Best Camp ever!!!
 

We sent our daughter to Wizarding World camp this summer, and even though it was cut short due to covid, it was the BEST three days of camp ever! We have gone to the YMCA, city recreation centers, private school camps, and girl scouts, and this was by far her favorite experience! After Harry Potter camp, we signed her up for three more weeks of camp with you. She was sad she couldn’t come every week. We will definitely purchase camps sooner next year so she doesn’t miss out!

  This was our first summer sending our kids to Camp Kroc, and we LOVED it!

"Your counselors are so friendly and welcoming and were very positive mentors for our kids. We can’t thank you enough for amazing and safe experience you provided. We will be back this fall!"

Camp Kroc Rocks!

My daughter is very shy and hesitant to try new things. Every day when we picked her up from camp, she did not want to leave. She made so many friends, loved her counselors, and tried so many activities for the first time. She tried ice skating and rock climbing for the first time at your camp and wants to come back to the Kroc Center to keep skating and climbing. Thank you for helping her come out of her shell

 "We love you guys and all you do to keep our kids safe, happy and healthy!"


 

Thank you for everything you do at the Kroc Center! We come for day camps, swim lessons, sports, and both kids grew up at your preschool. Thank you for helping us raise our children!”


 

My son LOVES swimming and ice skating at the Kroc camps! He always looks forward to camp in the summer.”
