Summer Camp 2015

A Complete Guide of Activities for Kids in Santa Barbara


Even before I had kids, I knew they wouldn’t be doing what I did in the summers — hang at home with their sibling(s), or, when they were older, ride to Goleta beach on the bike path and stay the entire day. It’s different for kids today, and that’s okay. So let The Santa Barbara Independent’s Summer Camp Guide assist you in finding just the right activity for your very unique camper — from visual and performing arts to outdoors, special needs, and spiritual to every type of sports camp. Here’s to an amazing summer, and happy camping!
