NEW! Payment Plan Option

All of our summer camps now have the option of a payment plan. We know paying for a whole summer full of fun up front can be a challenge, so we are now giving families the option to break up the payments to ease that financial burden when registering. Here is how it works:

  • 50% due at the time of registration.
  • Remaining 50% is due in two split payments. 
  • Camps must be paid in full prior to the start date.

You can select the payment plan option during the check out process. Payments will automatically be withdrawn using your credit card.

A Fee Assistance Program, funded in partnership with the Parks and Recreation Foundation of San Carlos, is available to help San Carlos residents participate in San Carlos Parks & Recreation summer camps and classes.
