COVID – 19 and Camp Life
We are expecting that the summer of 2021 will still be during the pandemic and that all campers and staff will wear masks. Our paid staff will also be vaccinated against Covid -19. In addition, we are selling camp by the week as opposed to the day to create more consistent pods/groups/cohorts.
In response to COVID-19, changes to allow camp to operate safely have been made based on guidelines from the California Department of Public Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Camp Association.
These guidelines and procedures are subject to change. Our website will be updated on a regular basis and emails sent to our registered families with updates as they evolve.
Need more information? Email email@example.com for the fastest response; we are in the office weekdays and returning calls as fast as we can but encourage emails so we can get back to you faster as well as on weekends.
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 2020! 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.”
