Known throughout the world as a center of entertainment, Los Angeles offers numerous engaging activities for kids. Your children can discover the distant past during a day program at the La Brea Tar Pits, find their wild side at ZooCamp with the L.A. Zoo, and view the wonders of the galaxy at the Griffith Observatory. Send your kids to a fascinating Los Angeles program by checking out the camps listed in our directory.
Step back in time at the famous La Brea Tar Pits to walk over the ancient stomping grounds of mammoths, sloths, and saber-toothed cats. At the Adventures in Nature Page Museum Day Camp, children in kindergarten through fourth grade go behind-the-scenes to learn about everything from Saber-toothed Cats to prehistoric Los Angeles. Teens 16 and up have the rare opportunity to work hands-on with fossils as volunteers in The Fossil Lab and see magnificent specimens as up-close as possible. For any child with an interest in dinosaurs and paleontology, these programs offer a fantastic inside look.
See a new side of the animal kingdom at the Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens. ZooCamp, a summer program designed for children ages 4 to 12, allows kids to see the zoo’s many unique animals in action.
All children will get to meet multiple animal ambassadors before discovering more about their new animal friends through painting, crafts, and even music. The camp’s combination of fascinating creatures and engaging entertainment will be so entrancing your little ones won’t even realize they’re learning.
For any child, especially those interested in science and astronomy, Griffith Observatory in historic Griffith Park is a must-see. As one of the first U.S. institutions dedicated purely to science, the Observatory is the perfect place to discover the mysterious universe or see science come to life at a live demonstration. The City of Los Angeles offers summer day camp programs inside Griffith Park, so a family visit to the Observatory after camp is an easy, free and stimulating way to have summer fun with your kids while learning something new.
