Veterans Day Camp planned for children of RSF

To celebrate our veterans and troops overseas, the Community Center has organized a Veterans Day Camp for the children of Rancho Santa Fe.

Join the center’s staff from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 11 as they take a land and sea adventure around San Diego visiting the Midway, the Star of India, sea lions and Shelter Island. Cost for members is $60 each day, per child; $45 for each additional child. Nonmembers price is $75 each day per child; $60 for each additional child. There is only availability for 15 children due to limited space in the vans, so register now.

Before leaving the Community Center, the youngsters will prepare packages for the troops away at war and letters for veterans at home.

If anyone in the area has loved ones overseas, the center staff says they would be honored to put together a gift package made by the children and families in Rancho Santa Fe. All that is needed is their name, company, unit and any special request of favorite items.

One of the staff members at the Community Center who has a husband away at war helped organized this event. The troops in her husband’s unit are very excited, so please consider how you can contribute. Send all e-mails to Renee at

For a current wish list of items and the names of soldiers, go to and visit the Youth Programs: Holiday Camps section.

The Community Center also will offer extended care hours for children from 8 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 5 p.m. Cost for members is $7 per hour; nonmembers is $10 per hour.
