Los Angeles Summer Camp Guide

Los Angeles & Orange County Summer Camps for Kids, Vacation Camps | STEM, Sports, Art

Los Angeles is summer camp paradise. And winter camp, spring break camp, school vacation day camp—you get the picture.

To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, when a kid is tired of camp in Southern California, he's tired of life—or at least pretty darn picky. LA and Orange County offer every kind of terrain, every kind of activity, and every kind of schedule in day camp, from Malibu to Pasadena, from Laguna to Agoura. Why not offer your kids a smorgasbord: horse camp one week, surf camp the next, followed by art camp, cooking camp, and marine biology? There are summer camp options for preschooler age kids, middle schoolers, and even teens. We have it all.

With so many camps to choose from, the Mommy Poppins Summer Camp Guide will always be a work in progress; check back often to see what new categories and creative camps we've added for the entertainment of your summer-loving offspring!
