Summer Camps for Kids

CSULB offers a wide variety of camps/programs during the summer. Contact camps to verify times, dates, costs and other pertinent information before signing up. Please note the following – each camp is run independently of the others; each camp has its own application process; contact the appropriate camp director for information and an application; most camps (where appropriate) will provide lunch supervision and transportation to other CSULB summer camps; acceptance in one camp does not guarantee acceptance in another and enrollment is based on first-come basis; and camp dates, times and costs are subject to change.

For more information, you may also access camp information on the academic summer camps Web site or the athletic camps Web site.
