What is the Date and Time of the Camp Fair?
The CSUN Camp Fair takes place in the Spring, 2021. We anticipate announcing the exact date soon and will post it here the moment we know it, but the Camp Fair will likely take place in April. It will be a single-day (3-hour) event from 12:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Activities are ongoing, so you can stay just a few minutes or the whole time but keep in mind there will be 50 of more different camps exhibiting their programs, so be sure to allow yourself enough time to visit all the booths and meet and speak with all the camps that interest you.
How Many Camps Will Be at the Camp Fair?
We anticipate at least 50 different camps and program vendors to exhibit their programs. There will be a mix of day camps, sleepaway camps, local camps, and camps from out of state showcasing their programs. Each booth will be different. Make sure you visit them all to get a good sense of all the different camp opportunities available for your kids this summer. Here's a list of some of the camps that participated last year.

How Does the Camp Fair Work?
The Camp Fair will take place inside the gym at the Redwood Hall Activity Center at CSUN. Here's how to day will work.
You can park next to the gym and walk right in. Our camp fair concierges will greet you at the Welcome Table and give you a program directory of all the exhibiting camps. You'll get a free goodie bag to keep all the brochures you'll pick up from all the camp booths. The goodie bag will be loaded with various informational resources from the camps, games and prizes for the kids, and free raffle tickets to win free camp sessions and other prizes from participating camps.
Once you have your goodie bag, the real fun begins. Visit the various booths staffed by the different camps and meet and speak with the camp directors and representatives. Ask all the questions you want to learn more about their programs. Get to know them face-to-face! The impressions you get speaking with all the camp people will help you decide if a given program is right for you. If you "click" with a camp off the bat, great! If not, move on to the next camp. Easy!
Should our Kids Come Too?
100% yes! The Camp Fair is as much for kids as it is for parents. Most of the camps will have games, activities and free giveaways at their booths for the kids. Attending the Camp Fair is a great opportunity for your potential camper to see what kinds of camps they may want to attend this summer!
Where is the Camp Fair Located?
The L.A. Camp takes place at inside the Redwood Hall Activity Center on the campus of Cal State Northridge (CSUN) this Spring.
Park in lot G4 on campus or even an adjacent street such as Zelzah. There will be conspicuously posted maps, signs and banners making it easy for you to find the event once you arrive on campus.
How Much Does it Cost?
There is no charge whatsoever to attend the Camp Fair. It's free! At the same time, we anticipate a large turnout of families, but we are also limited capacity this year to comply with post-COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. We suggest grabbing your free tickets to this event as soon as possible before they're all gone. Getting advance tickets also puts you on the VIP list to get free raffle tickets when you arrive at the event as well as win free camp sessions from participating camps.
How Do Camps Sign up to Exhibit?
What About COVID-19?
Protecting your health and safety is our first priority. While last year's CSUN Camp Fair was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are working closely with state and local health officials to present a Camp Fair event in 2021 to minimize the spread of COVID-19. A a myriad of safety protocols will be in place including hand sanitizing stations, frequent disinfecting of camp fair booths and venue, wearing protocols, social distancing and attendee capacity restrictions. Additionally, we also have ample outdoor space should we need to move the Camp Fair outside. For those who'd feel more comfortable, we have a Virtual Camp Fair website where we bring the Camp Fair to you! The virtual camp fair is the next best thing to a live camp fair you'll find, but we also hope to see you at the real live in-person L.A. Camp Fair event at Cal State Northridge this Spring!
