Enjoy an overnight stay in the great outdoors with your family at the Cameron Park Community Campout at Cameron Park Lake from July 11-12. Bring your camping gear and let others do the grilling for you. Enjoy swimming, crafts, campfire songs, storytelling, stargazing, sleeping under the stars and breakfast in the morning; pre-registration required. 

Sign your little ones (ages 6-12) up for the weeklong Junior Kidz Camp program at the Cameron Park CSD where they’ll be outdoor explorers, travel around the world, learn about bugs, go back to the future and make some waves while partaking in drama, arts and crafts, gymnastics, time at Cameron Park Lake, a special trip each week and more. Other youth programs and camps are available, too, including hula, tumbling and gymnastics, Kiddie Horse Day Camp (ages 4-6), Equestrian Day Camp (ages 7+), Mad Science Camp (ages 6-12), Theater Camp (ages 8-18), Fine Arts Camp (ages 7-13), a Fashion Drawing class for teens, and multiple sports camps/clinics.
