Youth Programs

Cal Youth Programs & Camps continue to uphold the Cal tradition of excellence. Since 1960, we have offered a wide variety of safe, enriching, recreational summer camps, and year round activities and experiences for kids of all ages.


Our youth programs make their home at UC Berkeley.

Our programs are different, because we are located on a university campus, we are able to use the power of our campus connections to make great things happen. The UC Berkeley campus is our home. We are excited to share our beautiful backdrop, the power of our campus educational partners, and the quality that you have come to know for more than 60 years from Cal Youth Programs & Camps. Our diverse array of programs include innovative summer Youth Camps and exceptional Year-Round Recreational Youth Programs. Our award-winning Youth Programs & Camps are staffed by trained professionals and program leaders who bring expertise and dedication to the roles. The caliber and consistency of our staff are a key reason youth and families return year-after-year!
