Youth Recreation

UC Berkeley Youth Recreation

UC Berkeley is known as a place where the brightest minds from across the globe come together.  That sets the bar pretty high for the youth programs that bear the Berkeley name and call its iconic campus home. 

UC Berkeley Youth Recreation (formerly Cal Youth Programs and Camps) provide a wide variety of year-round and summer experiences, sports, leadership opportunities and outdoor activities for all ages, led by high-caliber instructors and staff. And for more than 60 years, our youth recreation programs have lived up to UC Berkeley’s standards for excellence and — even tougher  — kids’ standards for fun, friends, learning, and new adventures. 

Camps. Registration. Events and all the fun stuff.
