Escondido Creek Adventure Camp is back and now enrolling


Summer is coming, but fear not, weary parents! Fortunately, our summer day camp program—Escondido Creek Adventure Camp—is back to save the day (well, five days, actually).


Escondido Creek Adventure Camp is a wildly engaging 5-day outdoor summer day camp. Campers explore the enchanting Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve, where they discover the natural world by hiking, playing, and conducting hands-on science! The wide variety of activities includes guided exploration, arts and crafts, games, science experiments, storytime, visits from special live animal ambassadors, and more!

 Each day begins and ends at Grape Day Park in downtown Escondido, allowing the campers the opportunity to observe the connection between the urban portion of the creek upstream and the more natural section of the creek downstream, plus it allows them the chance to use the playground and socialize with their fellow campers. We provide transportation from Grape Day Park to Elfin Forest and back.


We are currently enrolling children ages 7-10 for the following weeks:

  • June 20-24
  • June 27 – July 1
  • July 11-15
  • July 18-22
  • July 25-29
  • August 1-5

Each day is 8:00 AM-1:00 PM. Pickup occurs between 1:00 and 1:30.


This 5-day summer day camp program costs $275 per camper (a limited number of scholarships are available for Escondido children from qualifying households). Lunch is not provided, but we do offer snacks for the campers.
