MALIBU—The city of Malibu and its Community Services Department will hold online registrations for summer day camps starting Friday, June 26 through July 5, 2020. As of now, only Malibu residents can enroll and participate in camp activities. The city decided on this to further enforce physical distancing across its events and gatherings. Additional health and safety precautions will also be applied.
“To maintain the physical distancing requirements set forth by the County of Los Angeles, the City needed to decrease the maximum amount of participants in some of the programs offered this summer.” Recreation Supervisor Katie Gallo told Canyon News. “In the Los Angeles County Reopening Protocol for Day Camps: Appendix K, it recommended that programs with a large geographic distribution, consider restricting attendance to campers who live in the local geographic area as a measure of infection control.”
Day camp registration hours will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Activities are planned as weekly offerings from Monday to Thursday starting July 6 and running until August 6. Program offerings include surf, enrichment, and sports.
Camp groups this year include Aspects Surf Academy, Champ Camp, Super Soccer Stars, and others listed on the day camps page. Aspects Surf Academy, founded in 1999, will provide surfing education, water safety, and surf culture in their courses. Champ Camp’s play-based youth program specializes in a variety of team building sports and games. Super Soccer Stars has been around since 2000. They will teach soccer development instruction and help students develop teamwork skills.
Program details such as age group, price, and location will vary. For more information on day camps and health measures, visit MalibuCity.org/DayCamps or email Katie Gallo at KGallo@MalibuCity.org.
