To ensure the safety of all participants and staff, all camps will adhere to COVID-19 summer camp health guidelines that include physical distancing, cleaning, and the inclusion of personal protective equipment required for both staff and participants. Campers will be assigned to stable groupings during each session. County staff has been trained by the Public Health Department on the protocols required for summer camps.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is subsidizing the LA County Parks 2020 Summer Camps by offering scholarships at a free or discounted rate (from 50% to 100%) at selected sites. The availability of these scholarships is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis.

“Thanks to the support of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, we are able to offer free scholarships and affordable day camps for children and youth across the County,” said Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation Acting Director, Norma E. Garcia. “We understand that there are limited out-of-school camps this summer due to COVID-19, and therefore, we are joining together to ensure families have safe options for their children.”
