Parks and Recreation Summer Fun Program

Affordable Drop-in Recreation Summer Program for Children in Santa Barbara

The Parks and Recreation Department’s popular, FREE drop-in program, provides recreation activities, sports, crafts, and special programs to children going into the 1st–6th grades.

A free breakfast and lunch is provided through the SBUSD Summer Feeding Program. Participants in the Summer Fun Drop-in Recreation Program will enjoy 8-weeks filled with games, crafts, enrichment activities, sports, and the opportunity to participate in field trips, theme days, and more! Students interested in attending field trips that involve an admission fee, such as the zoo or batting cages, will be required to bring money. Inclusion support is also available for participants with special needs. Each Summer Fun site has between 10-14 program leaders and one site director with a staff to student ratio of 1:20.

Please note: Children must attend the Summer Fun Drop-in Recreation Program a minimum of 3-days per week to remain eligible for the program. Exceptions may be made due to illness, emergencies, or participation in a camp scholarship administered by PAL.
