Summer Camps


Spend your summer with Santa Barbara Parks and Rec! With plenty of camp experiences to choose from, campers ages 4-17 can explore topics including art, business, engineering, sports, theater, and water safety. We also offer scholarships and inclusion services for eligible families. More details below!



Registration is now open! If the camp you are interested in is already full, we recommend checking back regularly, as spots may open up if a participant cancels. Registration for each camp will close at 11:30 p.m. the Wednesday before the camp session starts.

Inclusion Services

To ensure children of all abilities can enjoy a summer camp experience, inclusion services are available. Inclusion staff will work with families to ensure campers with disabilities are accommodated based on their individual needs throughout their time at camp. Visit Adapted Programs and Inclusion Services for more information.


Eligible families can apply for a scholarship to send children to summer camp at no cost. These scholarships are funded by donations made to the PARC Foundation and distributed through SBPAL’s Campership Alliance program. Families interested in scholarship options can learn more about eligibility requirements and how to apply at SBPAL.org/Campership-Alliance.
