Updated for Winter 2022-2023
Los Angeles Public Schools take three weeks off during the Holidays, leaving working parents in need of camps for their kids. Here’s a list of terrific Winter Camps in Los Angeles to choose from.
Some camps have coverage the whole time and some only run part of it, so be sure to check the details before booking. There are so many options: kids could do coding, play Minecraft, play sports, do improv comedy, make fun crafts, learn acting and filmmaking, learn to sail – and no matter what you choose, they’ll have a ball!

Camp Wildfolk Winter Camp is a project-based, child-centered, and growth-focused Day Camp. They create a supportive and spirited atmosphere to encourage kids to be more wild and free. Wildfolk Free-Range is a cozy, relaxed version of their “Classic” summer offering– with more freedom & flexibility for campers (TK- *4th grade) to choose their activities given the shorter program time. Each day, campers choose two Activity Hubs to participate in (hubs might include: Craft Hub, Tech Hub, Messy Hub, Movement Hub, Performance Hub, etc). Additionally, campers start their day with teambuilding activities with their Team and spirited activities, songs, dress-up opportunities, and fun surprises are sprinkled throughout the week. TK campers stay together throughout the day. Mini-Adventure Camp is an opportunity to adventure big during Winter Break for Kinder- 5th graders. The first few days are spent on-site with Activity Hubs and then campers adventure on field trips Wed- Fri. Field trips include Pump it Up, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Discovery Cube. FYI: Campers do not need to be daredevils for Knotts– most of their campers stay in the “low thrill” group in Camp Snoopy area. *A special Guide-in-Training program is offered for 5th- 10th graders during Winter Camp. Email for details.

Camp Wildcraft is an art and nature camp whose mission is to “grow curious, creative, confident and caring kids who feel at home in nature.” Each day we hike and explore nature together and work on art projects using a wide range of materials and techniques– working with clay, building with wood, embossing metal, painting and drawing, using natural dyes, weaving with yarn. Campers participate in choice activities: baking cookies, improv theater, playing basketball in our sports court and big games in the field. We are small by design with mixed age groups. Middle school kids participate in our Junior Guide Program, learning leadership skills, participating in special programs and leading projects at camp which build on their skills and interests. Camp programs take place mostly outdoors on our beautiful expansive campus. In case of rain we will use our spacious indoor lodge.
