Frequently Asked Questions

The goal of the UCSB Summer Day Camp is to provide a safe, fun and active environment in which children can develop new skills, self-esteem and friendships.

We pride ourselves on offering an action-packed, varied and exciting camp. Highly trained and qualified counselors provide a warm, family atmosphere in which each child is special and all children are taught to respect and value others.

Campers enjoy daily swimming at the Recreation Center and Campus Pool, access to the UCSB gymnastics facility as well as weekly visits to the Ropes Adventure Course.

If you register online, please print out and return the Consent to Treat Form, prior to your child's participation in the program.
