UCLA Recreation Youth Programs offers a wide variety of summer camps for children in grades K–12. Located at UCLA, the camps emphasize each child's needs and personal development within a group setting.

Activities for younger children feature cooperative play and include indoor/outdoor games, arts and crafts, swimming, and field trips. For elementary children, camps focus on areas of interest: science, sports, acting, creative thinking, performance, and arts and crafts. Secondary school students can enjoy week-long programs in surfing, sailing, and rock climbing, as well as educational exploration in our adventure camps.
