Camp Metro Day Camp
After careful review of declining attendance and rising operational costs over the past few years, Girl Scouts has made the decision to not run this camp for the 2014 season. Instead we are going to use this time to research new and/or different ways in which we may be able to provide outdoor camp experiences to more of our girls in the South Bay area in the summer months. We want to thank you for your support and participation in Camp Metro. We know that many of your daughters have been attending for several years, which is why we wanted to give you ample time to find alternative summer camp experiences. At this time, we cannot say when, if or how Camp Metro will reopen. Please check back here for updates. In the meantime, we hope you will consider sending your daughter to one of our resident camps or attend one of our family camp programs together. In addition to these council run programs, there are a number of volunteer run day camps to check out here.
Rainbow's End, where Camp Metro was located, is availble for property rental!
Camp Metro day camp is located in Berryessa in the northeast area of Santa Clara County. The camp operates out of our newly renovated Rainbow's End Girl Scout Program Center located adjacent to Penitencia Creek Park. With state-of-the-art facilities, convenient freeway access and a beautiful park-like setting, this site makes and ideal location for a day camp.
In the center of the property is the main house. This modern, air-conditioned building offers program areas, a large deck ideal for outdoor meetings or buffets, restrooms and a complete kitchen. The summer camp office is also located here. Adjacent to the main house is a large grassy area for activities. Paved pathways meander throughout the site. A fire circle for campfires and outdoor cooking is located at the far end of the site and there are picnic tables located throughout the property.
Located on the far side of the property, is the Art Pavilion. A large open-air structure that serves as the art center in the summer, but is ideal for a group gathering or meeting location during the school year. Nestled between the parking lot and the main house is the Activity Pavilion. Another open-air structure, complete with a small stage for theatrical performances and guest presentations.
