Finding an engaging and enriching summer camp that's right for your kid always takes a bit of work. Finding one that's a good fit for your first-time, preschool-age camper can be downright nerve-racking. You want their initial camp experience to be fun, safe, and memorable, but not over-stimulating or overwhelming.

So we searched the city for kid-tested, parent-approved picks for your LA preschooler—ones that will make them eager for camp time to arrive each year. Because the awesome thing is, most of these preschool summer camps grow with your child, accepting kids in elementary school and beyond (which also means your older campers can go to the same camp). For your older campers, check out our Summer Camp Guide, or these free and affordable summer camps and activities for kids of all ages.
