EBRPD Offers Fun & Affordable Outdoor Day Camps


The East Bay Regional Park District offers fun and affordable outdoor day camps for kids and youth at a number of convenient locations. Park’N It Day Camp takes place in a different Regional Park each week, and offers hiking, fishing, arts & crafts, sports, environmental education, and swimming. This camp is designed for children ages 5 to 12. Camp is just $200 for Alameda and Contra Costa residents. Enjoy hands-on experience under the care of the Park District’s highly-trained staff of recreation leaders, lifeguards, and naturalists.

If you're age 13 - 17 and enjoy being outdoors and working with kids, you could join other teens in supervising young day campers and leading games, all while learning about careers in parks and recreation. Leaders-in-Training get a hoodie, T-shirt, 35 community service hours, and a gift card with the successful completion of a weeklong session. Teens must apply and there is a $50 registration fee.
