Parking Information

Where do we park? Where’s dropoff and pickup?

Many of our camps are located near street parking or City of Santa Barbara parking lots. For maps of each camp location, visit the camp page on this website. You’ll see a Google Maps preview box, which you can click on to get driving directions. We’ve also featured our most common Santa Barbara summer camp locations on this page for your convenience.

Downtown Locations

Carrillo Recreation Center

For the Carrillo Recreation Center and other downtown camp locations, nearby City parking lots are managed by the City of Santa Barbara’s Downtown Parking Division. Most allow up to 75 minutes of free parking. A PDF map of all Downtown Parking’s paid lots is available on the City website, and real-time parking availability can be found on the Real-Time Downtown Parking Map.

For more information on parking in downtown City lots, please call the Downtown Parking Division at (805) 564-5656 or visit their website here.

Waterfront Locations (Cabrillo Boulevard)

Cabrillo Pavilion and Skater’s Point

For the Cabrillo Pavilion (Bathhouse) and Skater’s Point skate park, adjacent paid City parking lots are convenient options. Because these lots, managed by the Waterfront Department, have a pay-and-display system rather than parking attendants, parking without displaying either a paid receipt or a temporary parking permit on your dashboard could get you a parking citation.

Some of our camps issue temporary parking permits for campers’ families to use for the duration of their registration in camps near Waterfront parking lots. If your child will be attending one of these camps, the camp director will email you a temporary parking permit prior to the start of camp.

Casa Las Palmas

For Extended Care and Land and Sea Camp, the headquarters is Casa Las Palmas. There is a convenient turnaround loop just off Cabrillo Boulevard, directly in front of Casa Las Palmas, which you can pull into for pickup and dropoff. You’ll still need to sign your child in and out for security purposes, but the line moves quickly and the process usually takes only a few minutes.
