What is FALL Camp looking like?
After completing 10 weeks of summer camp, we are not ready to stop and are offering an all outdoor camp this fall!!! Let’s keep these kids active and social while the weather’s nice.
Fall camp is:
- for ages 6 – 13 year olds
- all outdoors
- campers and staff will be required to wear masks
- 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm, Monday – Friday
Camp is now offering 2 set sessions of camp. It is recommended by the CDC that camp groups be as homogeneous as possible so creating a camp where the groups have the same kids for 10 days at a time will help achieve this. Camp sessions being offered are Monday – Friday
Session 1: September 8th -18th (9 days)
Session 2: September 21st – October 2nd
As required by the CDC, we will be doing a health screening each day using contactless thermometers . Parents will remain in their car and not come into camp at drop off time
Camp group capacity has been reduced. As has always been our practice, we will not overfill a group. This is with the safety of everyone in mind. This also means we will fill up quickly.
Camp has additional hand washing stations as well as mandatory hand washing times throughout the day. The camp team will be taking extra steps between camp groups to sanitize any equipment or tables as well as a focus on planning activities that allow campers to spread out.
Activities offered include art, STEM, music, nature, gaga, golf, rockwall, kayaks, laser tag, stand up paddle boards, sports, canoes, archery, drama, and swimming. The waterpark will not be open. Not every group will do a water activity each day. Campers are being grouped by age and if you wish to book with a friend, be sure an select the same group they did (switching groups after registering will be difficult due to limited space). REGISTER ONLINE using a computer! More Fall Camp Information.

Why Choose Camp James?
For over 25 years we have been the most popular and trusted summer day camp in Orange County. A great reputation takes time to build and concentrated effort to keep. We continue to work and play well so your camper can have the best summer ever. Our directors are educated professionals, seasoned supervisors, and dedicated individuals. Directors are on site and daily at camp and we encourage parent communication. Our philosophy is Be Kind – to each other, the environment, our camp grounds.
We believe in Social Networking, the old fashioned way. Don’t take our word for it. Ask your friends, family, neighbors, or child’s teachers about us. Chances are they have not only heard of Camp James, but they possibly went to our camp, sent their child/grandchild to our camp, or maybe have volunteered or worked at our camp. For a quarter of a century, we have brought summer magic to the lives of over 40,000 children, hired over 2100 amazing staff, and had over 5500 spirited teen volunteers. Chances are you might have a “Close Encounter” with one of them. Ask them about their experience at Camp James.
AWARD WINNING CAMP:
ParentingOC Magazine has had a long-running Reader’s Choice Contest for Day Camp of the Year. Camp James won this award again in 2019! Validation like this is something worth bragging about.
We have also been voted Orange Coast Magazine‘s Best Day Camp of 2019! This is what they said: “With activities from archery to zip-lining, Camp James provides so many things for kids ages 4 through 13 to do, it seems impossible to try them all. The counselors here are enthusiastic and warm, so you’ll never feel like your children are just waiting for pickup. If anything, you might find your little ones having so much fun that they’re never ready to leave. Bonus: They’ll sleep well those nights.”
