I found a Summer Camp in Newbury Park without field trips!
As a working parent of 2 young children I really wanted to find a camp that was local and didn’t have field trips.
I was also looking for something with enough activities to keep my almost 8 yr old son active and happy and nurturing enough for my sweet soon to be 6 yr old daughter.
The Summer is Fun Day Camp is located at Borchard Community Center (190 Reino Road, Newbury Park CA 91320) and is operated by a Division of TeMaat, Inc. During the school year they also run an after school program. They are located in a room at the back of the community center which has air conditioning for those hot days.
Summer Dates are June 13 – August 19, 2011* – final dates will be determined once Conejo Unified School District sets the calendar for the 2011-2012 school year. This camp is for 5 to 12 year olds. (805) 499-3331
Even though there are no field trips the kids will still have lots to keep them busy. Every Tuesday there will be fun activities that will be brought to the kids.
- Reptile Family
- Fire Department (kids get to use a fire hose)
- Jolly Jump (bounce house)
There will also be:
- Swimming at the Newbury Park High School pool 2 – 3 afternoons per week
- Daily crafts
- Legos and Perler beads
- Thursday afternoon movies and/or water play
If you haven’t been to the Newbury Park High School pool it has great options for kids. There is a 3 foot deep pool in addition to the full size pool. There are a lot of lifeguards on duty and you have the option for your child not to get in the water if you prefer.
My son is on a gluten free and dairy free diet and I am very happy to have found a camp that doesn’t have food crafts and will work with me so that I can bring in food substitutes so he doesn’t feel left out.
The camp has both full day and half day options and cannot be booked online. You must call (805) 499-3331 to get an application packet emailed to you.

I’m so glad that our search for a summer camp is over. I highly recommend you give them a call to learn more.
