2019 Summer Camp Guide

Make Plans for When School is Out

By Terry Ortega | Published March 27, 2019

With the help of this annual guide, I sent my son (22 years old) and daughter (about to graduate high school) to various summer camps over the years, including the Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History, martial arts, surf and volleyball camps, the zoo, and more. I can honestly say that they never wanted to go but they ended up having long days of memorable experiences laughing, meeting new friends, and learning new things.

For this year’s guide, we’ve compiled a list of more than 200 camps, including old favorites such as the Boy & Girls Club, Parks & Rec, and the YMCA, and new camps such as Make A Pizza! Camp, Seaglass Summer Camp, and Summer Ice Hockey School, in categories from arts and outdoor to special needs, spiritual, and sports with daily, half-day, and full-day fun. 

This sunny season, use the Santa Barbara Independent Summer Camp Guide to find the perfect experience that excites, teaches, and inspires your kids. Happy Camping!

▸▸ Look for information on how to be listed in next year’s guide in our paper and online in February 2020. Listings are not automatically rolled over from the previous year without verification.
