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!

The Sunshine Day Camp Difference

Quality Programs

Did you know that many summer camps run by their own set of rules? As a licensed childcare, Sunshine Day Camp 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 Day Camp counselors are sensitive, caring, and enthusiastic leaders. Many of them work in our programs throughout the year, meaning they are seasoned Sunshine Day Camp employees.  Each employee 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 Day Camp, 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 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.

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 each Sunshine Day Camp locations, we have safe, decorated, and climate-controlled facilities throughout the day—a necessity given Santa Clarita’s hot weather.
