Summer Fun at Every Age

Temple City’s trio of summer day camps cater to kids and teens in grades one through 10.

TEMPLE CITY, CA (June 1, 2018)—How did you spend your summer vacation? Participants who sign up for one of Temple City’s three summer day camps will have no problem answering that age-old question come September.

Designed to serve children and teenagers in grades one through 10, all three camps — including a traditional day camp, sports camp and teen camp — will offer a variety of high-octane activities and off-site excursions.

“Generations of Americans have made lasting memories by partaking in a quintessential summer activity: going to camp,” said Temple City Parks and Recreation Director Cathy Burroughs. “Here in Temple City, we’re proud to offer our youngest residents three types of summer camp experiences and three distinct opportunities to choose their own adventures.”

Open to youth entering grades one through six, Temple City’s summer day camp will introduce kids to classic camp fare like arts and crafts, games and field trips to Raging Waters, Soak City and even Catalina Island.

The program runs from June 11 through Aug. 17 at First Lutheran School and Cleminson Elementary School at a rate of $135 per week.

More athletically minded kids entering grades two through six can spend five weeks honing their skills at summer sports camp, which runs July 2 through Aug. 3 at Live Oak Park and Immanuel Church.

Participants will learn and play a variety of sports, including flag football, baseball, softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, pickle ball, badminton and more. Weekly excursions to Sky Zone Trampoline Park, rock climbing gyms and bowling alleys are included in the $135 per week fee.

Middle and high schoolers entering grades six through 10, meanwhile, can opt for Temple City’s summer teen camp, which comes complete with plenty of built-in time for playing sports, working on new projects in the computer lab and socializing with friends.

Field trips will see participants enjoy Catalina Island, Medieval Times, the California Science Center and a Los Angeles Sparks game. The teen program runs June 11 through Aug. 17 at Live Oak Park at a rate of $410 for 10 weeks.
