The Fleet runs weekly, half-day summer camps this year from June 25 to August 24. Camps are for Grades 1-2 and Grades 3-4, with additional camps for pre-kindergarten and Grades 5-8 on selected weeks. The camps are designed to be fun, educational, hands-on, and incorporate the Fleet's exhibit galleries.

To further enhance the summer camp experience and as a convenience to you, many Balboa Park institutions – including the Fleet – coordinate their half-day summer camps so kids can spend a full day in the park. Staff members at participating institutions escort children from one camp to another during a supervised lunch hour. This means that a child can be dropped off at a morning camp and picked up from an afternoon camp at a different venue. Parking is limited during summer months so please plan accordingly.
