Extended Care

The Riekes Center provides extended care for most of our camps throughout the summer.

EARLY DROP-OFF - Available 8 - 9 am (complimentary)

Students have access to our Extended Care room for a quiet, safe space to read or play quiet games until camp begins. 

AFTERCARE - Available until 5 pm

Aftercare is available for all camps held at the Riekes Center except for Surf Camp.

Aftercare includes:

  • healthy snack
  • movies
  • quiet reading and relaxation room
  • group activities and games
  • arts and crafts
  • time to practice skills learned at camp

COST - $10/hr, billed in 30 minute increments

We provide automatic billing for the week. Just give us a credit/debit card and we will track the amount of Aftercare you use and charge you at the end of the week. You can also pay on site in advance of each day/week, if you prefer.    


There is no need to sign up for Extended Care at this time. Read below for how scheduling will work during the week of camp.

  1. Online In Advance
    • A week before camp, we will send an email to all campers
      • The email includes a form where you can choose the days you will use Aftercare
  2. In Person, In Advance 
    • On the first day of camp, come into the center and give us your schedule for the week
  3. In Person, Day by Day
    • Come into the center and tell us at the front desk that you plan to use Aftercare that afternoon

Summer Camp Scholarships

The Riekes Center's mission is to provide people with the opportunity to participate, regardless of their ability to pay.  We have scholarships available for all of our summer camps. 

To apply for a scholarship online, sign up for the camp and choose the "Summer Camp Scholarship Deposit" option on the checkout screen (see image below). 




After you complete your online registration, you will receive an email within 2-3 business days with information on how to fill out the Scholarship Application and set up an appointment with our Scholarship Department.  You will have 30 days to complete your scholarship process. 

The $5 Deposit will be applied toward your camp tuition, and will be refunded if you decide not to participate after completing the scholarship process.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Scholarship process, contact Aaron Alvarez at aalvarez@riekes.org or (650) 364-2509

Registration Help

This year, the Riekes Center is using a new registration site (Mindbody Online) for all of our camp enrollments.  We've created this help section to hopefully address the most common issues and confusion that may arise when signing up for camps. 

Note, if you have been to Riekes before for ANY programs, you will need a new password (see the first item on the list).

Creating a New Password

This year, we are using Mindbody Online for our online registration for the first time.

If your child has participated in ANY Riekes Center programs in the past, you already have an account in Mindbody Online. You will need to create a password so you can log in and sign up for camps.

IMPORTANT: Your account in our system is under the CHILD’S name, not the parent. You will use the child’s name when creating your new password.

Once you have created a password, you will be able to sign up for ALL future camps with just a few clicks.

4. IMPORTANT - When "Tell Us Your Name" pops up, use the CHILD'S name (not your own).
