The UCSB Department of Recreation has provided quality summer programming for the past 33 years. Our many Summer Programs serve thousands of young people annually and draw participants from around the world.

2014 marks the 33rd year of the UCSB Summer Day Camp. The Summer Day Camp serves children as young as 4.5 and is a great way to introduce them to a variety of activities.

UCSB Summer Camps utilizes the Rec Cen Aquatics Staff to provide the community with Swim Lessons, Jr Lifeguards and the popular Surf & Kayak Camp. Staff for these programs are certified lifeguards and adhere to strict safety guidelines.
