Silverlake Camps provide unique day-camp experiences for elementary school children in the Los Angeles area. In a small group of up to 25 campers, aged five to ten years old, we explore all the benefits of growing up in the one-of-a-kind urban wilderness of our city. Silverlake Camps are owned and operated by two experienced teachers who grew up in the heart of Los Angeles: Lauren Lepucki, who holds a certificate in early Childhood Education and teaches at Lookout Mtn Preschool, and Kari Druyen, who also holds a certificate in Early Childhood Education and directs the Wonderland Elementary After-school Program. Our home base is the rec room of Mount Hollywood Church, at the corner of Rodney and Prospect in Los Feliz, and we are fully insured.
Our Summer, Winter and Spring Camps visit museums, parks, gardens, restaurants, noteworthy neighborhoods, and exciting recreation spots. All of our days are active ones, and our focus is on socialization. At Silverlake Camps we are not about arts and crafts, we are about appreciating the art, architecture and natural beauty of the city. We are not about organized sports, we are about swimming in the ocean, hiking to a waterfall and running through the sprinklers. We are not about theater programs, we are about multi-age, collaborative, cooperative games in the park. At Silverlake Camps we believe in children enjoying their vacations, having a blast with their new friends, and experiencing the amazing city they are growing up in.
