La Selva Beach Day Camp 2020

Register your 6-12 year old child for a fun-filled summer of games, arts & crafts, sports, cooking, field trips, and SUMMER ADVENTURE TRIPS! Participants will be divided into groups for age-appropriate activities. Program participants will receive a camp t-shirt, which must be worn on all field trips. The staff to child ratio is 1:15 or less on site and 1:8 for field trips. Trip destinations are subject to change. Please note - the sites are closed on all field trip days. Send your child with a lunch and snacks each day, wearing closed-toe shoes (i.e., sneakers).

SUMMER ADVENTURE TRIPS! Mark your calendars for this summer's Adventure Trips, which provide children registered in the La Selva Beach Summer Camp an opportunity for  exciting off-site excursions.  Trip are supervised by the La Selva Summer Camp staff.  To ensure maximum safety, each leader is assigned a small group of children, each of whom has a buddy.  Your child must be registered for the La Selva Beach Summer Camp to attend a trip.


Due to the uncertainty of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently collecting payments for future programs. As registrations open for programs, we will be contacting customers and processing registrations from the waiting list for each activity on a first-come, first-served basis. Please sign up for the waitlist for an activity if you are interested in registering for it if/when it becomes available.

Session 2 = June 29 – July 17 

Session 3 = July 20 – August 7

A week before each session begins, parents will receive an information handbook and an emergency information card.  Please be sure to review the information in the handbook, and fill out the emergency card completely.  The emergency card must be given to the site staff on the first day of camp.
