Summer Camps for Teens and Tweens

UC Berkeley Youth Recreation (formerly Cal Youth Camps) offers a wide variety of summer camps and leadership experiences designed especially for tweens and teens. They can learn a new skill, relax and play with friends, or train to be camp counselors — gaining valuable leadership experience along the way.

Families return to our summer camps year after year because of our experienced instructors and highly-trained, caring staff. Many of our leaders and counselors are former campers themselves. Our programs for teens help build the leaders of tomorrow, while delivering what summer camp is all about: unforgettable memories and fun.
