At CA Summer Programs, we place special emphasis on nurturing the self-confidence of our campers. Through teamwork and individual successes, appropriate risk-taking and challenging activities, each child gains a greater sense of self-worth and accomplishment. Our 7:1 camper-to-staff ratio and counselors selected for their love of children mean that CA Summer Programs give children a meaningful and lasting experience–whether they stay for two weeks or for the entire summer.

Each week is built around a theme, which opens the door to crazy theme days, special attractions, goofy games, campfire activities, fun food, and silly camp songs.

Register your child for a full day of day camp or combine day camp activity blocks with partial-day specialty programs to create a unique schedule for your child.
