I notice that there are some sessions that have similar names throughout the day and or at different sites. Are these classes repetitive?

Classes will not repeat during the day between AM and PM sessions.  While concepts may stay the same, themes and activities will differ.

Can I enroll my student at a site they don’t go to school at?

For Summer Camp, yes. Each student can be enrolled at any site.

Do you provide transportation between the sites?

No, we do not provide transportation between sites.  You can choose different sites during the day as long as you provide transportation.

Does PlayCV provide lunch and snacks?

Yes, Castro Valley Unified School District provides lunch and snacks.  Students may also bring their own lunch and snacks. These will be kept indoors with their backpacks. Please make sure to update Enrollsy for any allergies your student has.

If I enroll my student in more than one week of camp, will they receive more than one PlayCV issued t-shirt?

Students will receive one t-shirt upon enrollment for the summer.

Is Juneteenth a holiday?

PlayCV will be closed on June 19th, 2024 as it is a Federal holiday.

My student is not enrolled in Castro Valley Unified School District during the academic year. Are they still allowed to enroll?

Yes, but if your family is eligible for Expanded Learning Opportunities Program funding (for Castro Valley, a District Waiver), they must attend a camp in their home district.

We’d like to change the theme camp our child is signed up for, how can we do that?

For any enrollment changes, please email us at info@playcv.org describing the change you would like to make, and we can do it on the back end.

What are the camp times?

A full day camp with extended care runs from 8:30 AM to 4 PM or with the extended option 5:30 PM.  A student can enroll in the morning session and / or afternoon session and / or extended care.  The breakdown is as follows:

  • AM Session: 8:30AM - 12:00PM
  • Lunch 12:00PM - 1:00PM
  • PM Session: 1:00PM - 4:00PM
  • Extended Care: 4:00PM - 5:30PM
What does my student need to bring?

All students should bring a backpack with a water bottle, sunscreen (to administer themselves), lunch and snacks (if they want their own lunch instead of district provided lunch and snacks). For sessions that require a laptop and/or headphones, students will need to bring their district issued Chromebook and headphones.

Where are PlayCV Summer Camps this summer?

We are at five sites this summer: Creekside Middle School, Independent Elementary School, Stanton Elementary School, Castro Valley Elementary and Chabot Elementary School.
