Summer Camps

Welcome to UC Davis Youth Programs Summer Camps!

We offer a wide variety of summer camps and strive to provide something in every camper’s wheelhouse. Our programs are broken up into four groups to better assist you and your camper(s) in finding exactly what you're looking for! Our Aggie camps are closest to the traditional day-camp experience, Craft camps primarily take place in our amazing on-campus Craft Center, and the Specialty camps can cover everything from animals to sports and theater. Lastly, our Partner camps allow us to work with brilliant members of our UC Davis campus community to put forward a camp experience that is both fun and educational!

*Disclaimer* Our programs separate campers based on their incoming grade level in the fall.

Camp Offerings

We are excited to offer camps in music, crafts, sports, dance, and many partnership camps! View camps by grade range below:

Summer Schedule

Camps will be offered in 1-week and/or 2-week sessions. The camp day will run from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. Additionally, Afternoon Adventures is available as an extender for your camper's day program.

Why camp?

We know camp is fun in the moment but what kind of lasting impact can it have on the lives of former campers? The American Camp Association’s large-scale national study talked to 18-25-year olds who attended summer camp as kids. Learn how camp prepares you for life by teaching you to appreciate differences. The impact of camp lasts forever.
