Summer Camps!

Check out our Summer Camp Guide.  Your child will have the #BESTSUMMEREVER with the City of Encinitas Parks and Recreation Department. 

This summer, Encinitas Parks & Recreation has hundreds of quality day camps, all happening at a wide variety of top-notch parks and facilities. Each summer, thousands of kids venture out to camps that include the ever-popular Encinitas Junior Lifeguards, Beach Kids, surfing, beach volleyball, theater, science, gaming, and sports camps. If you are looking for a classic summer day camp experience, Seaside Day Camp at Glen Park in Cardiff-by-the Sea is the spot. Seaside Day Camp suits your child’s need to explore, imagine, and create, with an emphasis on nature and the ocean. While your campers are at any of Encinitas Parks & Recreation’s wonderful day camps, parents can be assured that children are supervised with care, and are learning valuable technical and life skills. Make this summer one to remember in Encinitas! 

That's not all!

Your Encinitas Parks and Recreation department doesn’t end with great camps and classes, the Parks and Recreation Department also maintains and operates 6 miles of beaches, more than 20 parks (including the amazing new Encinitas Community Park), over 40 miles of recreational trails and the beautiful Encinitas Community & Senior Center. We pride ourselves on providing incredible places to play and enjoy. We encourage you to get out and enjoy all that Encinitas has to offer.
