Summer Day Camps

Recreation programs and facilities are adhering to Santa Clara County Public Health guidelines during the Novel Coronavirus pandemic. For information on closures, reduced hours and social distancing procedures, visit our City Services/Operations Updates page.


Parents are asking whether Milpitas Recreation and Community will hold summer camps this year and if they should enroll. It’s a great question!

Currently, Summer camps are still open for enrollment, and we’re hopeful. However, we will continue to follow California State and Santa Clara County Public Health Guidelines regarding resuming normal activities. At this time, we cannot guarantee all camps will happen as scheduled, or that camper enrollment numbers will not need to be reduced to maintain proper social distancing.

Based on current Santa Clara County public health rules, we anticipate camp will fun much differently and sizes may be smaller than in past years. Organizations like ours, providing care to youth may also have restrictions on providing services to essential workers and the general public. As we receive more direction and clarity on the levels and type of service we are allowed to provide we will be reaching back out to inform our customers.

Please be assured, if you register for a summer program that is later cancelled or if your child does not get into the camp due to public health restrictions on camp sizes or registration, you will receive a full refund for direct class or program fees.  Credit card transaction fees are non-refundable. We will continue to keep you updated as we have more information on in person programs as well as those camps and programs that will be offered virtually.

As you continue to Shelter in Place, please visit our Virtual Community Center that features, crafts, activities, resources, and online events.
