Thanks for your interest in youth camp with Stanford Recreation & Wellness this winter. Unfortunately, there will be no Winter Camp for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

We hope to see you at Camp Cardinal in Summer 2020 and beyond!

While you can’t depend on Bay Area weather in the winter, you CAN depend on three days of FUN at Cardinal Classic Winter Camp! These 3 days will be a similar style to our Classic Cardinal Summer Camp, if you’ve participated in that — think your favorite sports in the morning, and a “choose your own adventure” afternoon — including options like arts and crafts, LEGOs, or more sports!

And… a SWIM DAY on Friday for everyone!



Winter Camp will be located at the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation (ACSR) Basketball Courts on 341 Galvez Street. Both drop off and pick up will be at the ACSR as well as all camp activities.



Winter Camp for ages 6-12 years, boys & girls Campers are grouped by school grade level

**If a Camper is deemed too young by the staff, we reserve the right to cancel camp for that camper.

Camper Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Campers must have a parent or authorized person sign them in and out each day. All authorized pick-up people must be designated on your online registration account and may be required to show a photo ID at time of pick-up. You may add any additional authorized persons on your account for camper pick-up after registration. You can also add names manually to the list at sign-in on Tuesday mornings.

Note: Drop-Off and Pick-Up are located at Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation at Outdoor Education and Recreation Center at 341 Galvez Street. Please note that parking rules will be enforced during camp hours so parking without a permit or paid meter could result in a ticket. You must park at the designated parking areas which will be given to you prior to camp. Failure to comply will result in cancelation of your camper.

Drop off and pick up may change due to construction. In the event of changes, we will update this website and send you information by email before your session starts with updated parking information.



Our camps are designed for children interested in multiple sports with a curriculum of numerous hybrid games along with sports such as soccer, basketball, kickball, and more. This Winter Camp will also include swimming on Friday, January 4th! We will take a but to our other facility across campus that day.

Campers are grouped by age/grade for morning activities and by interest in the afternoon.

Most activities will be in the ACSR using gym space and fitness studio.

** Please note that the activities listed are examples of activities that may be scheduled during camp sessions. Activities each day and week may vary. Some variation is based on camper age, interests.
