Summer camp registration

Important information about early registration

To qualify for early registration for summer day camps, your child must be a current scholarship recipient.  If you have a child with a disability who is on Medi-Cal, they can qualify.  Apply right away using this link.  Our registration team is working hard to process all applications in time for early registration on March 13.


Apply right away to give us the best chance to process your application in time

Note: The application may say the deadline to apply is February 28, but you should apply right away anyway.  Our registration team is working hard to process all applications in time for early registration on March 13.

If you do not qualify, or do not get your application submitted in time, you will still be able to register beginning March 18.  

50% of all camp spots will still be available on March 18

More information about qualifying for early registration

The Summer Together Initiative that we were a part of a couple of summers ago was a collaboration with other city agencies in response to the pandemic. Together we offered an enrollment period for children who met certain criteria, including children with disabilities. As we are now back to “normal business,” we are offering early enrollment for families who meet the criteria for our scholarship program. If you are not low-income, but have a child with a disability who is on Medi-Cal, your child will be approved for a 50% scholarship and able to participate in early enrollment.  

We apologize if you were told you would not have to qualify for our scholarship program to participate in early registration.  Beginning this year, everyone has to be a current scholarship recipient to qualify.

Join our team!

We are also always hiring staff to work with our Therapeutic and Adaptive Recreation programs, as well as staff to support inclusion in general programs!
