Don't Miss L.A. Camp Fair 2022, L.A.'s Biggest and Best Summer Camp Expo!
What a difference a year makes! Unable to open in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person summer camps are back and so are in-person camp fairs! Attending a Camp Fair is the ideal way to help you find the best camp for your child in 2022. Demand for camp was at an all-time high in 2021 -- so much that many programs filled up before they even made their dates available to the public. Summer 2022 will be just as popular with families everywhere desperate to get their kids into the top programs. Given how competitive finding the right camp can be, time is of the essence to choose a camp for summer 2022. If finding a great camp is on your wish list for summer 2022, now is the time to make plans so you don't miss out. Join us this spring for the L.A. Camp Fair family of summer camp expos to find the ideal program for your kids.
What's the L.A. Camp Fair?
L.A. Camp Fair is like a smorgasbord of amazing summer camp choices waiting for you to explore, where over 150 camps and programs all come together under one roof to showcase their 2022 programs for you.
In-Person L.A. Camp Fairs scheduled for UCLA, Dodger Stadium & Cal State Northridge with additional events added soon
We're hosting five (5) in-person Camp Fairs in early 2022 in and around Los Angeles to help making finding a summer camp easier and more convenient than ever. No matter where you live or work, there's bound to be an L.A. Camp Fair near you.
All the following in-person Camp Fairs are confirmed, but not all the specific dates or venues yet. Here are the confirmed and pending events so far:

Where and When Does the Camp Fair Take Place?
How Much Does it Cost to Attend?
Attending the L.A. Camp Fair events is absolutely free! But even though it's free, you'll need to RSVP by reserving free tickets in advance. We require families to reserve advance tickets so we can share the expected turnout numbers with the participating camps. The camps, in turn, use this information to ensure they staff their booths with enough people to meet and speak with you at the Camp Fair, and also so they know how many videos, brochures, and other free giveaways and promotional items to bring for everyone who attends the Camp Fair.
Should Kids Attend the Camp Fair?
Yes! In fact, we think it would be a disservice to your kids -- if not a mistake -- not to bring your kids to the Camp Fairs! The Camp Fairs are designed for the whole family in mind, especially your kids, who can enjoy games, sample camp activities, free food, and meet the camp counselors from all the various camps.
In addition, it's been proven kids enjoy camp much more when they're involved in the decision-making process versus when parents unilaterally make camp choices for their kids.
When kids play a part in choosing a camp, they will likely have greater happiness and success and their selected camp program. So yes, please -- bring your kids to the Camp Fair!
Can We Sign-up for Camp at the Camp Fair?
While Camp Fairs are principally informational events where you have the opportunity to "meet and greet " camp representatives in person and learn about their programs. There is absolutely no requirement or expectation for your to sign up for a given program while attending the event. However, many camps may indeed offer the opportunity to sign up for camp at their Camp Fair booths. Some might even offer special discounts or other incentives for doing so. Accordingly, if you come across a camp or program you love, don't be afraid to ask the camp director or representatives staffing the booth if they're offering any incentives for signing up on the day of the Camp Fair.
What About COVID-19?
As you may have heard, last year's Camp Fairs (as with all live events) had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. We're back in business for 2022! We are working with state and local officials to make sure all the protocols and safety measures are in place for a safe and healthy camp fair experience for all, including frequent cleaning of facility venues, social distancing practices, mandatory mask and vaccination protocols, numerous hand sanitizing stations, and more. We will post a link to all the health and safety requirements here shortly. Meanwhile, we encourage you to download your free tickets to the Camp Fairs today, because one thing we do know is there will be high demand for attendance, yet firm capacity restrictions in place which will reduce the number of people who are able to attend the Camp Fair. We want to make sure we have room for you, so grab your free tickets today.
How do parents and families get FREE Tickets to the Camp Fair?
We are looking forward to a great series of L.A. Camp Fair events in 2022! All the camp exhibitors are excited to meet you. We only have space for a certain number of families to attend the Camp Fair, so fill out the form below and get your free tickets today. See you at the Camp Fair!
How Do Camps Sign Up as Exhibitors?
If you operate a summer camp, school or program in Los Angeles -- or you're just interested in getting more campers from the Los Angeles area -- we invite you to join us as a camp exhibitor at the L.A. Camp Fair. Due to the popularity of the Camp Fairs among family attendees and to comply with post-COVID health and safety guidelines, we only have room for a limited number of camps. We anticipate selling out sooner rather than later, so reserve your booth today. Exhibitor registration information.
Virtual Camp Fair Week begins March 7 for those who enjoy finding summer camps from their own couch
There's nothing quite like the hustle and bustle of a traditional camp fair where you can meet 100's of summer camp directors live in person, face-to-face. But there's a lot to be said for the convenience of searching for camps online, too. If you're preference is to find your ideal program online rather than attend a potentially crowded in-person event, our Virtual Camp Fair is for you. The Virtual Camp Fair takes place for a full week from Monday, March 7 through Friday, March 11, 2022. Many camps exhibiting at the in-person events are showcasing their programs at the online Camp Fair, too. Even though the Virtual Camp Fair takes place online, it's a real camp fair to help you find the best IN-PERSON camps for your kids this summer. Meet, greet and chat live with all the camp directors, learn about their programs, watch videos, pick-up free brochures and more, all from the comfort of your own couch.
