It's always easier to find a great camp when you're able to compare lots of them together all at once. And the best way to learn about many different camps all in one place is by attending a summer camp fair.
You're probably familiar with a wedding expos or food show where you can visit individual booths to learn about all the different vendors' products and services. The wedding expo might have lots of different D.J's and florists displaying their wares, for example, while the food expo might have different cupcakes, breads, and other various items you can sample by visiting all the various booths.
Camp Fairs are similar events, except instead of food or wedding vendors, summer camps are on display instead. That means you can go booth-to-booth meeting various camp directors in person and learning about their programs. You can get free brochures and ask questions, and your kids can sample different activities camps might be offering at their respective booths. It's kind of like a Farmer's Market, but for summer camps instead!

Just a quick update on the 2019 L.A. summer camp fairs. We anticipate knowing the firm dates and locations for all these events by October at the latest.
Last year the folks at L.A. Camp Fair organized three amazing camp fair events at UCLA, in Calabasas, and in Thousand Oaks, respectively. We understand they will be doing the same thing again (and perhaps adding one or two additional events) in late winter/early spring of 2019.
To stay apprised of the latest L.A. Camp Fair announcements and developments, keep reading this blog and follow us on twitter. We'll announce the new information as soon as we get it!
The most gratifying part of our job is when we're able to provide information families can use to find amazing summer programs for their kids.
This past weekend we held a summer camp expo at UCLA where over 1,000 people showed up to meet camp representatives from over 60 day camps and sleepaway camps to find their right camp for their children.
By all accounts it was successful in every way. Here's a quote from Ken F., a Los Angeles resident who attended last Sunday's UCLA Camp Fair with his family:
"The L.A. Camp Fair at UCLA was a win-win for our family. My wife, son-in-law and most important 11 yr old grandson came away with plenty of insight into the vast world of camping. From robots to fencing to sports, to stand-up comedy, to language immersion, to water, land and plenty more activities we have so many options to review. Thanks to you and your staff the show was well organized and upbeat from the moment we were greeted at the door to the reps behind the camp tables. The enthusiasm of adults and kids was palpable throughout the venue. Congrats on a superb effort."
Please note, we're not showing you Ken's description of the UCLA camp fair to pat ourselves on the back. Far from it, and quite the opposite in fact.
Instead we wanted you to see how valuable attending a Camp Fair can be as a resource to help you find a great camp, and more specifically, so you mark your calendars for our next two upcoming Camp Fair events in Thousand Oaks on April 14 and Calabasas April 22, respectively.
The Calabasas and Conejo Valley Camp Fairs will be fun for the whole family!
For those families searching for the perfect summer camp, we highly encourage you to come out to one of our next two Camp Fairs! Both events will be fun for the whole family with games, prizes and free food for everyone, not to mention the best part of all -- meeting and greeting staff from over 50 local and out-of-state summer day camp programs and overnight camps and so many other kinds of camps in between!
We had a GREAT time at last Sunday's L.A. Camp Fair at UCLA!
Despite the rainy weather -- and the last minute move to hold the Camp Fair inside Pauley Pavillion rather than outside the Sunset Canyon Recreation Center -- over 1,000 people attended the Camp Fair! These families got to meet and interact with camp representatives from 62 amazing day camps, overnight camps, and every other kind of camp and summer program you can imagine.
We are so happy to be able to match up so many families with so many wonderful programs. We know you will find a fantastic summer camp experience for your kids this year, simply because you attended the Camp Fair!
But if you were among the hundreds (and hundreds and hundreds and HUNDREDS!) of families who attended Sunday's event, now your real work begins!
After collecting lots of brochures and meeting many people, you now have the task of sorting through all your materials to find a great camp for your child.
Sometimes it can be overwhelming seeing so many camps and people together in one place, so we've compiled a list for you below with links to all the camps who participated at Sunday's Los Angeles Summer Camp Fair. Just click on the links below to visit each camp's website and learn more.
(By the way, the following list is also a great resource for families who may have missed Sunday's UCLA Camp Fair and want to find a super program for their kids this summer!)
