Beginning March 30th, the Kroc Center will offer C.A.R.E Camp (Camp Approved for Responders of Emergencies). This is a crucial childcare day program for First Responders for whom staying home is not an option. We know this is a worrying time for many front-line healthcare workers doing critical work for our community. It is imperative we do our part to provide care for the children and help every worker we can during this outbreak. This is the Salvation Army’s opportunity to serve those who serve our community. In addition, RJ’s Preschool Academy will offer spaces for existing preschool family members.

In order to comply with current gathering requirements, CARE camp will be limited to 24 children. Spots will be given on a first come first served basis through online registration. Parents will provide proof of employment (work badge or a current pay stub) to ensure that spots are going to those working on the front line.

Dates: March 30 – April 10

Hours: Mon – Fri 7AM-6PM

Cost: $150 for the full week
