Happy Campers Run Amuck at CCLCF

The Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge is coming to an end with its summer programs and saying hello to fall with informational workshops and exciting programs for children, teens and adults to enjoy.
The Community Center offered more than 50 classes and camp offerings for children and adults this summer, and attendance was high with 406 children at Camp Runamuk, 174 children at preschool camps, 138 children at sport camps and 92 children at science camps.
“Camp registration opened in February and was at capacity in less than one week of open registration,” said Sarah Rodriguez, program director for the community center.
She added that both Camp Runamuk and preschool camps exceeded registration each week of camp offered, and that the camps were the most popular during the summer months.
Adult classes were also popular, with 217 in attendance. Dance camps, music and art camps and chess camps received about 80 participants, too.
The Community Center is always looking for more ways to engage the community in an activity or class.
“We are always looking for ways to grow offerings and a way for us to do that is find out what our community needs are, what is not being offered that participants show interest in and what can we bring to the community that is unique that will set us apart from any other organization,” said Rodriguez.
The Community Center will offer 43 youth programs, nine teen programs and 16 adult programs during the fall. Some of those classes include tai chi, bingo and brunch events, teen board gaming, lacrosse, martial arts and cooking classes.
Rodriguez said the Community Center is always looking to add more classes for teens and adults to help grow offerings for all community members.
“We obtain participant feedback as often as possible throughout each program period through participant surveys and directly with individuals as we see them for programs,” said Rodriguez.
Community Center Executive Director Betsy Ferguson was pleased with the summer engagement.
“This summer we welcomed more campers than ever before and introduced some fun new classes for adults and seniors. We are looking forward to launching our new Teen Programming in the fall,” said Ferguson.
