Camp James is a traditional style day camp offered in a natural, outdoor environment. Our goal is to expose children to a wide variety of activities as well as provide abundant opportunities for campers to increase their skill development each year they return for another summer session.

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 2021!
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.”
