Day Camp Operation Permit

Day Camp Operator Permit 2022 Notice

We are no longer accepting 2022 Summer Day Camp Operator Permit requests. The 2023 process will begin in October. Check back for updates.

Both for-profit and non-profit day camps must have a permit in order to operate in the East Bay Regional Park District. Camps are considered to be "operating" in the East Bay Regional Park District when the park is the primary business location, i.e. kids are dropped off and picked up at the park. A permit is not required for occasional field trips that start or finish at the provider's facilities. Advanced notification is required for swimming.

Fee: $100/summer (June through August*)
*The Special Event Permit fee or the Outside Program Permit fee applies to day camps or other fee-based programs September through May. 
See the Special Event and Use Permit page.

Please contact  or (510) 544-2540 for more information or to obtain a permit.
