After School Program

Grades K-5th


ZOOM Open House

August 13, 2020

We are very excited to have your child attend our after school program Adventure Zone this school year! We are setting up two open houses via Zoom, 9am and 5pm, so we can introduce ourselves, have an open dialogue about the program and answer any questions you may have. Below are the links for each open house. Both of the open house are the same, but we wanted to give you options just in case one time worked better than the other.

9am Session Information

5pm Session Information


Adventure Zone is operated by the El Dorado Hills CSD Recreation Department with the purpose to provide a safe, caring, and enriching environment for your child after school.

A variety of age-appropriate, and integrated activities will be provided under the guidance of trained personnel. Children are encouraged to be actively involved so that they develop social skills and learn to make responsible choices within the program's structure. District staff provides the children with a variety of opportunities to participate in art, science, and outdoor activities as well as time for homework and fun.

Adventure Zone will also include use of a highly secure online emergency network called ePACT, which collects medical and emergency information for all participants, eliminating the use of paper forms. Using ePACT means staff will be better prepared to deal with any emergency, big or small as well as more accurate, up-to-date, and legible information over the paper forms we’ve used in the past. Because it is web-based, staff and parents can securely access the system via smartphone, tablet, or computer, so it’s always accessible whether at the park or during a field trip.

How Can I Register?
Registration will operate similar to 2020 Summer Camp, where El Dorado Hills residents have the opportunity to register on a first-come, first-served basis for beginning Wednesday, July 29, at 6:00 pm. Waitlist registration will open online for Kinder through 5th grade, and families only need to register ONE person from their family to the waitlist. Our staff will call residents back in waitlist order the following day, Thursday, July 30, 2020, to add additional family members, gather all registration information, and payment for the first week. Non-residents may register for the program beginning August 14, 2020.

A waitlist for other grades will be accepted, with the expectation to fill additional needs as demand, and appropriate staffing is acquired.
