"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Day Camps - Southern California

Many organizations such as YMCA, Family Y, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts offer day camps during summer months. Some programs even offer overnight programs to add adventure to the program.

Being in the right group is very important to campers and a good camp will make sure that each camper is happy in their group. Campers can be grouped by several criteria: grade in school, chronological age, friend request and special needs.

The Cali-Camp Summer Day Camp program allows every camper to participate in a creative outdoor adventure while in a group setting.
