Free and Reduced Price Camps for Youth!
Make this a summer your kids will always remember! Camp registration is open for City of Eureka summer camps! Whatever your kids’ interests, they’ll have fun in the north coast sun with all sorts of creative and exciting activities. Summer camp is a valuable experience for all children, which is why Eureka Community Services has multiple options to make our summer programs accessible to families of all backgrounds.
Camp Cooper is a free summer camp for kids ages 5-12! From June 20-August 11 kids will participate in enriching environmental education activities learning about the natural world near and far! With limited space, there is an application process for Camp Cooper based on three different criteria to qualify: receipt of public assistance, income eligibility, and special hardship circumstances. If accepted, a space will be secured for the entire summer.
We accept Changing Tides and offer 50% fee reduction scholarships to qualifying families while available for our other fee-based summer programs: Camp ALL Stars, Camp Sequoia, and Leaders-In-Training. To utilize these programs, you must apply in person at the Adorni Center, 1011 Waterfront Dr., Eureka.

Transforming Eureka Teens into Tomorrow’s Leaders
Is your teenager an up-and-coming leader? Then the Leader in Training (L.I.T) program is just for them! Held in conjunction with City of Eureka Summer Day Camps, this leadership-based training program provides hands-on experience for personal and professional growth. Being a teen leader in our summer camps means participants will work alongside summer camp staff hosting activities and excursions for children. Teens will have the opportunity to work on a variety of skills including leadership, communication, conflict resolution, responsibility, teamwork, and more! Many of our L.I.T’s end up working in city programs when they get older! It’s the perfect resume builder and stepping stone to a career in recreation!
Applications are available online at https://www.eurekaca.gov/245/Leaders-In-Training-LIT-Program
