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!

How We Helped Three Conejo Valley Families Find a Summer Camp
Just yesterday three different parents from Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and Oak Park emailed us inquiring about local summer camp opportunities. These families had kids ranging in age from three to fifteen, and their all questions were pretty much the same: Where could they find some really good summer camps in the Conejo Valley?
That's an easy question to answer! Come to the L.A. Conejo Valley Camp Fair and meet staff from over 50 programs all in one place.
What's the Conejo Valley Camp Fair?
In a nutshell, the Conejo Valley Camp Fair is the biggest and best summer camp expo for kids and families in the Conejo Valley area.
Presented by L.A. Camp Fair 2018, the Conejo Valley Camp Fair takes place Saturday, April 14 at Conejo Creek North Park in Thousand Oaks. The Conejo Valley Camp Fair is a totally free summer camp expo where over 50 camps and programs will all come together "under one roof" to showcase their programs and activities for summer 2018.
There will be day camps, overnight camps, sports camps, acting camps, music camps, gymnastics camps, Jewish camps, science camps -- you name it! All kinds of camps and programs will be there, and many will be doing live demonstrations and sample activities at their booths so your child can experience the exact same activities they'll be doing at camp this summer.
You'll also be to get brochures and other promotional materials from all the camps, participate in raffles and drawings to win free camp sessions from many of the programs, enjoy great food and have an all- around fun day at this free event.
Attending the Conejo Valley Camp is by far the easiest, most convenient, and efficient way to find the perfect summer program for your child because it provides the opportunity for you to meet so many camp directors from various programs at the same time. Isn't that a whole lot better than contacting each camp individually for information? Of course it is! : )

There's a Camp for That!
You know that saying, "there's an app for that?"
It basically refers to the notion that whatever your interest in a certain subject or activity -- or you need help accomplishing a certain task, you're trying to find something, and so on -- you can simply download an app onto your phone, computer or tablet to help you achieve it.
There's an app for everything, and guess what? The same can be said about camps: "There's a camp for that" fits the bill exactly!
What do we mean by, "there's a camp for that?"
Simply this: Whatever your child enjoys doing the most -- whatever they want to learn about or experience more than anything -- is available to them in the form of a specialty summer camp program. Here's what we mean.
So Many Specialty Camps to Choose From
The music camp example above is just one example of a type of summer camp that focuses on specific activities.
If your child love sports or baseball they might have a blast attending a sports specialty camp. Taking it a step further, maybe your son or daughter is a huge L.A. Dodgers fan. Did you know the Dodgers have a great summer baseball camp for kids?!
Just remember, whatever your child loves the most -- whatever they want to experience or try or can't get enough of -- there's a camp for that!

Here at L.A. Summer Camps.com, we always want to help you find the best camp for your child. Which such a diverse set of available programs, it's not always easy finding the right one.
That's why we're sponsoring L.A. Camp Fair 2018. The L.A. Camp Fair is a huge, 3-day summer camp expo taking place at three convenient locations throughout greater the Los Angeles area in March and April.
What Exactly is a Summer Camp Fair... and What Exactly is L.A. Camp Fair 2018?
You've probably been to various expos in the past where companies, people, or organizations in a single industry come together in a hotel, meeting room, dining hall, gymnasium, park, etc. to exhibit their offerings for consumers.
Wedding, bridal, tattoo, food, boat, auto, and so many other similar examples of various expos come to mind.
And that's just what Camp Fair 2018 will be like -- collection of over 75 summer camps and programs assembling in one place to exhibit their program offerings, answer all your questions, and give you the opportunity to meet them in person to better assist you in finding the ideal camp for your child this summer.
At many Camp Fairs, including L.A. Camp Fair 2018, many of the camps and programs will be doing live exhibitions and demonstrations of their actual camp activities so your child can a great idea of what actually takes place at camp.
There will also be games and activities for the kids plus food, prizes and raffles where you could win free camp sessions from participating camps.
Why Should We Attend the L.A. Camp Fair?
Several reasons, really. One of the main ones is that with so many camps on display all in one place, you're bound to find at least of few programs that catch your child's interest.
Visiting so many different programs at the same time is also quite convenient for you -- a huge time-saver compared to calling or emailing all the different camps to learn more about their programs one by one.
The other element of attending a Camp Fair many parents love is the opportunity to meet the camp counselors, directors and staff first hand. In many cases, families sign-up for summer camps sight-unseen and basically need to trust their gut they've picked the right program.
But at the Camp Fair, you can meet the camp staff ahead of time first-hand. Making this personal connection in advance is a great way to get a personal feel for the people who you're entrusting your kids to this year. It's a fantastic opportunity to see which camps make a good first impression which, as we all know, means a lot.
Where at the Three L.A. Camp Fair Dates and Locations for 2018?
With three convenient dates and locations throughout L. A. and the Valley, you are bound to find an L.A. Camp Fair close to you. Attending the event most convenient (proximity-wise) to you is an ideal way to meet over 50 or 60 camps.
However, just a quick FYI: attending all three Camp Fairs is the only way to guarantee you'll see all of the participating camps without missing any. That's because not all of the camps are attending all three events, in other words, some of the programs are only attending one or two. So if you're interested in seeing every exhibiting program you might consider attending all three events.
It's totally up to you to decide how many of the Camp Fairs you'll attend this year. We've spoken with parents who are coming to just one, other parents who are coming to two, and others who are coming to all three. Meanwhile, here are the details for the three L.A. Camp Fair 2018 expos this year:
• L.A. Camp Fair Event #1: Sunday, March 11 at UCLA
• L.A. Camp Fair Event #2: Saturday, April 14 at Conejo Creek North Park, Thousand Oaks
• L.A. Camp Fair Event #2: Sunday, April 22 at A.C. Stelle Middle School in Calabasas
How Can We Get Tickets to All Three Camp Fair Events?
Great question! All of the events are absultyue free and you can get your free tickets to any or all individual events by following the links above for each respective camp fair event.
If you would like a single free ticekt to all three evetns, we're offering a free 3-day event pass you can prink or keep onyour phone which will give you entry into all three camp fairs for free. Get your free 3-day event pass here.
