Whether they’ve been with us for many years or just one, your child will have a great time at Sunshine Day Camp!
Daily Themes: Each day will have a daily theme but the theme is just the beginning! Within the theme, we jam-pack the day with a variety of activities all campers will enjoy. In addition, we have a weekly dress up days (dressing up is completely optional) that add to the excitement.
Return of Field Trips (Entering Grades 1-6 Only): After a brief hiatus due to COVID precaution, we are resuming field trips again! This year we will be adding 4 trips, Golf N Stuff, Santa Barbara Zoo, Bowling, and Edward’s Cinema. Field trips are available to children entering grades 1-6 only. Optional stay back care is offered to all children (TK-6th) on field trip days.
Special Guest Entertainers: For the weeks we are not going on a field trip we will be hosting a special guest entertainer. Guest entertainers offer a fun and immersive camp experience! This year’s guest entertainers include Megan Makes Bubbles, Dave the Magician, Color Me Mine, and the Reptile Show.
Hot Lunches & Kona Ice: This summer we will offer a hot lunch option each day, with a special hot lunch from select vendors (including In-n-Out and Chick-Fil-A) each week. Additionally, the Kona Ice truck will visit weekly, allowing children a cold treat on those hot summer days.
For more information, see our 2023 Summer Camp Calendar below. For those enrolled in our camp, a detailed weekly information sheet will be provided, including added daily, hot lunch options, field trip times, and more.
“Sunshine Day Camp is a very trusting child care provider. My son has been with Sunshine for about 4 years and loves going. He never tells me he doesn’t want to go, and there are times I pick him up and he wants to stay longer. I am very comfortable leaving my son in the counselor’s hands. Sunshine Day Camp does stuff like ice cream socials and BBQs where the parents can come and join. I would not move my son out of Sunshine Day Camp for anything. Best place for a child!”
At Sunshine Day Camp, children are under constant adult supervision on campus and on field trips. Ratios are typically around 12 children to 1 adult (compared to 20 to 1 at some competing summer camps). During water activities, our ratios are 6 to 1. We feel that quality supervision equals a safer environment and better experience for your child.
Built into every aspect of Sunshine Day Camp’s DNA is character. It resonates in the staff we hire, it’s evident in the way we act around children, and clear in our policies and practices. We are all about the child and family!
It may surprise you to know that many summer camps don’t have access to indoor facilities during the day. At each Sunshine Day Camp locations, we have safe, decorated, and climate-controlled facilities throughout the day—a necessity given Santa Clarita’s hot weather.
In 2023, we will be offering summer camp at these locations*:
We are open Monday-Friday, from 7am-6pm. Sunshine Day Camp will be closed on Tuesday, July 4, 2023.
