Over 1,000 Summer Camp Scholarships Available to Local Children Through ActivityHero’s Camp and Class Marketplace

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- For the first time, families who struggle to make ends meet can apply for multiple summer camp scholarships with ActivityHero's simple online registration. Over 1,000 scholarships are available at 50 summer camps for as little as $20. Participating camps include BrainVyne (Palo Alto, CA and other Bay Area locations), Camp Perigee (Berkeley, CA), CD's Art Studio (San Jose, CA), Game Time Basketball (Henderson, NV), The Paintbrush (Chicago, IL) and many more.

While some summer camps already offer financial aid, each has its own application process and deadline. ActivityHero's scholarship program allows families to apply for multiple summer camps with one application, saving time and increasing the success of receiving a scholarship.

"We have an amazing variety of summer camps, extracurricular activities and sports on ActivityHero," said Peggy Chang, Co-Founder and CEO of ActivityHero. "We want all children to have access to high-quality summer experiences and social and learning benefits."

In particular, summertime poses challenges for working parents to fill in the 11-12 weeks that school is out. "If there is a gap in childcare coverage, mothers are usually the ones that stay home with the kids, which can impact their career," Chang said. "By providing an easy way to find camps, and connecting them with scholarships, we want to help mothers reach their full potential in the workplace while their kids gain new experiences at camp."

This is the first time that many of the participating camps are offering financial aid. "I've always wanted to offer scholarships but I didn't know how to start," said CD Hullinger of CD's Art Studio. "ActivityHero's scholarship program makes it easy to offer a few spots without the administrative work."

Families can apply for a scholarship at ActivityHero.com. Scholarships are available for children ages 5-17. Household income and family size will determine scholarship eligibility. Cash contributions from local families help more children attend summer camp.

Apply at: https://www.activityhero.com/biz/summer-camp-scholarship/camp-scholarship-application

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) Clinics and Tours in San Francisco, CA

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Adventure Out, California's leader in outdoor adventure, is now holding Stand Up Paddleboard clinics and tours at Mission Bay & Mission Creek Park in San Francisco. These programs will bring Adventure Out's professional and quality programming to the heart of San Francisco. On and off-board instruction will ensure that all participants are hitting the water safely and responsibly.

Mission Creek Park is truly a featured gem in the Mission Bay Parks system. It's the perfect place to experience open spaces and green places, right in downtown San Francisco and on the water's edge of the SF bay. The new SUP program by Adventure Out marks the first collaboration with the City of San Francisco and the Mission Bay Park System to offer high-quality, professional and legitimate outdoor guiding services at the City sanctioned park. Paddlers will be able to launch from the public boat ramp at the park and learn basic skills in the calm waters of Mission Bay, before heading out to McCovey Cove and the nearby San Francisco Giants baseball stadium.

Adventure Out CEO Cliff Hodges explains the importance of these guide-to-government relationships: "Several sectors of the outdoor guiding industry have been operating for decades now on public lands with little or no regulation. While this may have been convenient for independent guides, it has led to a decrease in professionalism and safety standards. Adventure Out has been working with local, state, and federal governments for the past 17 years to clearly define permit standards for all commercial guide services and outdoor professionals in every location that we operate."

To experience the difference of going outdoors with professional and certified instructors, and to learn more about the Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) programs offered in San Francisco, visit Adventure Out on the web at https://www.adventureout.com/.

Temecula United Adds Former Chivas USA Coach and U.S. Men’s National Team Scout Carlos Juarez to Staff

TEMECULA, Calif. -- Temecula United Soccer Club announces the hiring of Carlos Juarez to oversee the Club's Coaching Education Program. He will also coach the Boys 2003 and Boys 2007 teams at the Club. In what is seen as a major hiring coup by Temecula United, Carlos brings more than 30 years of top-level experience to the Club having worked at all levels of the game including the U.S. Men's National Team and Major League Soccer.

"We are extremely pleased to add Carlos to our Club staff," said Temecula United Soccer Club President Michael Richards. "Carlos is one of the finest coaches not only in California, but in the entire country. It speaks highly of our Club that a coach and administrator with his pedigree decides to join the Club."

"His knowledge and connections to college programs will greatly enhance opportunities for our players looking to play at the next level," Richards added. "Carlos will spearhead our College Pathway Program."

Carlos Juarez holds a United States Soccer Federation "A" License and was the NCAA National Coach of the Year after reaching the women's National Championship game with Cal Poly Pomona in 1999. Coach Carlos has coached U.S. Youth National Teams, served as the head coach of WUSA's San Diego Spirit, and was an assistant coach with MLS Chivas USA.

With U.S. Soccer, Juarez has served as a National Staff Instructor and as a Chief Scout for the U.S. Men's National Team from 2011 to 2016 under head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. His last major assignment for Klinsmann was to scout opponents during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Coach Carlos, who previously was Cal North's Technical Director and head of the Olympic Development Program (ODP), just finished his term as Arizona Soccer Association's Technical Director.

"Carlos is a U.S. Soccer instructor for all coaching license levels", said Club President Michael Richards. "He teaches "A" license courses and will be asked to develop Temecula United's Coaching Education Program as we continue to build the finest coaching staff of any club in the area".

Carlos Juarez adds even more international soccer experience to Temecula United's staff following the recent additions of former Canadian World Cup player, Greg Ion, as its Program Director, and former EPL academy player, Aaron Kiely, as its Technical Director.

"I am looking forward to sharing my experience with every youth player and coach at Temecula United," Juarez said. "I have seen the growth and the development of Temecula United the last few years and want to be part of its future. I am excited and looking forward to getting to work."
