Based at Big Rock in Topanga Canyon, Cali Camp is a traditional day camp the way you probably remember camp as a kid. Horseback riding, archery, nature study, swimming, sports and games, arts & crafts, go-carts, so much more. Transportation available for Thousand Oaks campers. Cali Camp on its website claims to be the "best camp in Los Angeles." We'll let you be the judge of that. Meanwhile, we won't hesitate to say we feel it's one of the best day camps for T.O. kids.
Camp Keystone was closed last summer due to COVID but responded with family camp activities and related programming to keep the fun alive. Camp Keystone fully intends to reopen and resume its typical fun and exciting summer camp program for kids this year. Though it's technically based in Agoura, hundreds of kids from Thousand Oaks attend the camp each year. From a giant water slide activity to flexible scheduling to an awesome campsite and more, your son or daughter won't be able to get enough of all the fun offered at this popular day camp program.
Camp Kinneret Summer Day Camp
Even though it's located in Agoura, Camp Kinneret has been serving T.O. kids for years (if not generations!) with traditional day camp programming to make even the most experienced camp directors shake their heads in awe. Sports, games, arts and crafts, and many more outdoor activities are available. We've heard some families claim this program might be more suitable for younger kids, but we think their age-appropriate programming style makes it suitable for campers up to 13. (Once kids reach age 14 they can become CITs or counselors in training). This is a well-rounded camp your child will love. Transportation is available, too.
Lindero Kids Summer Sports Camps
A summer camp fixture in Thousand Oaks for years, Lindero Sports Camps was an unfortunate casualty of of the coronavirus pandemic last summer having to suspend operations until 2021. They are raring to go this summer with all kinds of sports camps, programs and activities for kids and teens including golf and tennis, among others. Hot lunch and after care programs available, too.
