Want to give your child an action-packed summer they’ll remember forever? Well, look no further… Sunshine has it all! For more than 32 years, we’ve been providing quality summer programs to the families and children of Santa Clarita. Sunshine boasts all-inclusive summer day camps for all ages and interests at many convenient locations throughout Southern California.

Sunshine 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 does stuff like ice cream socials and BBQs where the parents can come and join. I would not move my son out of Sunshine for anything. Best place for a child!


Summer Camp

The Sunshine Difference

Quality Programs

Did you know that many summer camps run by their own set of rules? As a licensed childcare, Sunshine operates under the strict requirements of the State of California. This, coupled with our child-focused philosophy, provides your family with an exceptional camp experience.

Awesome Activities

Campers enjoy a variety of theme days and activities carefully crafted and planned to interest all personality types. In addition, we have special guest entertainers, rallies, and field trips. Children are organized in small groups by grade/age to allow for common interests, ability, and more individual attention.

Sensational Staff

Not only do we take special pride in our programs, we also take special care in the people we hire! Sunshine counselors are sensitive, caring, and enthusiastic leaders. Each undergoes a rigorous background check and training process on such topics as positive reinforcement, appropriate discipline techniques, and effective child supervision.

Low Child-to-Staff Ratio

At Sunshine, children are under constant adult supervision on campus and on field trips. Further, the ratios at all times are typically around 12 children to 1 adult (compared to 20 to 1 at competing 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.

Strong Character

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!

Kid-friendly Facilities

It may surprise you to know that many summer camps don’t have access to indoor facilities during the day. At Sunshine, we have safe, decorated, and climate-controlled facilities throughout the day—a necessity given Santa Clarita’s hot weather.

Two Summer Camps to Choose From!

1. Adventure Camp

Entering grades K-7

Ready for a good ol’ fashioned summer camp? Adventure Camp is an affordable, yet action packed summer experience for your child. This camp is designed for the elementary-aged child. The program features exciting themed on campus days, and optional weekly field trips to places like Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm. We have six Adventure Camps , housed in our Sunshine buildings on the following elementary school campuses:  Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, Oak Hills Elementary, Mitchell Elementary, Pico Canyon Elementary, Stevenson Ranch Elementary, and Valencia Valley Elementary.

Sunshine travel camp

2. Travel Camp

Entering grades 6-9

Sunshine’s Travel Camp, is designed specifically for middle school-age campers (entering grades 6-9). While these campers are older and expected to be a little more independent, counselor to camper ratios will still remain low. Ratios will not exceed 1 to 15 on campus and 1 to 12 on field trips. This camp does exactly what the name implies, TRAVEL! Campers enjoy two to three included field trips per week to places like Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm and much more!

Note: Travel Camp is a traditional summer camp program, and not a child care.

What's New?

Your child is not just a number. Every year, we reinvent our calendar of themed days to provide your child with a new and exciting adventure. We strive to provide a unique experience for each of our campers. It’s one of the many things that has set us apart from our competitors for over 30 years.

Whether they’ve been with us for many years or just one, your child will have a great time at Sunshine Day Camp!
