2021 Summer Camp Guide

Find the Perfect Summer Experience for Your Kids Using Santa Barbara’s Complete Guide to Fun — In Person or Virtually

By Terry Ortega | April 29, 2021

Word on the street is that summer camp in S.B. is a great antidote for living through a pandemic. For this year’s annual guide, we have compiled a diverse list of over 75 camps for kids to choose from. Students from tots to older teens can once again participate in this great summer tradition after a long school year of virtual learning. It’s time to hang with friends, meet new ones, learn a new activity, or improve on a particular talent. The guide includes camps that hone a young person’s skills in the visual and performing arts, deepen a love of nature, offer STEM classes, and keep kids active in every type of sport. The old favorites are back, such as Zoo Camp, S.B. Parks & Rec, S.B. Girls and Boys Clubs, and the YMCA with new additions such as Enriched Nature Camp, On the Same Page — All Ages Library Program (free), Rowing Camp at Lake Cachuma, West Coast Kite Life Flight Camp, and more. Don’t forget to ask about early-bird and sibling discounts as well as scholarships when signing up.

Let the S.B. Independent Summer Camp Guide assist you in finding the perfect experience for your hard-working kids. Choose camps that are in person, virtual, or a combination of both. School’s out, and freedom and fun are in! Happy summer!
