McCloud Community Resource Center Summer Kids Camp 2023

McCloud Community Resource Center has held its free week-long Summer Kids Camp for the 2nd year.

Held at McCloud Elementary School, the camp is in conjunction with the last week of summer school which is the week of July 17th from 8:30 to 2:30. 

The camp provides breakfast and lunch every day, and each child gets a camp T-shirt.  Every day there are craft activities and presentations from different agencies for the 29 children enrolled from preschool to 6th grade. 

On the first day, The Honor Guard from the American Legion Post 92 and the Auxiliary gave a demonstration of the meaning and ceremonial folding of the American Flag.

Post and Auxiliary members, Martin and Carolyn Glenn, taught the children how to construct a solar oven from pizza boxes and tin foil.

Buying all the supplies so every kid could make their own solar oven and then together, they tested them out by cooking smores in them.

Each day there is a different theme to character building and representatives from different organizations come to give educational demonstrations including MSPD giving a K9 demonstration, Cal Fire, McCloud Fire Department, McCloud Services District Refuse Truck, a beekeeper, COS Academy giving a police car demonstration, a talk about finances, and on the last day, there will be a barbecue in the evening at Hoo Hoo Park for all attendees. 

For information on the services that the McCloud Community Resource Center provides, go to or visit their office 303  Main Street, McCloud. The office is open Monday through Friday 9 to 5 pm.

McCloud summer camp children get to witness firsthand a salute from the Honor Guard. 

The children of the MCRC Summer Kids Camp watched educational videos, had coloring contests, and enjoyed other individual and group art projects.
