Regardless of skills, or ability, there are many ways for youth of all ages to participate in Youth Recreational programs all year long! Keep learning, exploring and growing throughout the school-year with our Year-Round Programs. We offer an array of innovative experiences for kids of all ages, including classes, clinics, and camps. Programs include Cal Youth Skateboarding, Youth Martial Arts, Cal Adventures Youth Programs, and Golden Bears Youth Gymnastics. Our exceptional, high quality youth programs provide both recreational and advanced-level opportunities for youth of all ages.


Cal Youth Camps 

Whether you are looking for a new adventure, opportunities for healthy play and learning, or just a fun, safe place for youth to develop new memories and make new friends, Cal Youth Camps has you covered. We offer a multitude of diverse camps and youth programs that are suited for every kid.


Meet Our Staff

Our staff are the reason we see familiar faces return to our programs year-after-year. Some have been with our program for decades – or even attended Cal Youth camps in their childhood! That remarkable consistency allows youth to learn from mentors and build positive relationships within their programs. With education and training as our foundation, our camps and activities are led by experts in their field, including talented recreation professionals, specially trained experts, and high-caliber coaches who teach and inspire.
