The most common comment from parents during a West Hills Day Camp tour is, “I want to go to camp!”

Throughout the summer we host various family events including Family Fun Day, Family Big Blue nights on Thursdays after camp, and camp shows!  These events in addition to our annual Fall Festival, Spring Carnival and Open House/Open Play days are opportunities for the whole family to swim, play and bond!  We also hold an annual family campout right here at West Hills Day Camp.  Please refer to our camp calendar to see when these amazing events are scheduled.

During the summer parents are welcome to visit the camp anytime between 10:00am and 3:00pm.  This is a great way to see your child in action on the athletic fields, swimming in the pools, climbing Everest or participating in one of our many activities throughout the campgrounds.  Our office staff will be happy to let you know where your child’s group is upon arrival and can also be reached by phone if you want to plan ahead of time to see a specific camp activity.

You are required to check in at our welcome booth upon arrival and depart from the camp before 3:00pm. Once you have presented valid identification, you will be issued ID tags to be worn during your visit.  We encourage parents to come watch their children participating in activities, developing useful skills and growing as individuals!

The Family Overnight

Annual Event for Registered Families

The famous West Hills Family Overnight is the talk of each season at West Hills Day Camp. This event is for West Hills enrolled families only, and opens up the entire campus to a fun-filled weekend of family bonding and adventure. Pitch your tent with your family on our beautiful 18-acres grounds, roll out the sleeping beds and air mattresses and prepare for a night of traditional camping fun with the whole family. Each of our heated, professional sized pools and numerous sports and adventure areas are open to families throughout the day and night. Come together for an EPIC family shaving cream fight, then clean off and sit around the camp fire for roasted marshmallows, stories, and more traditional fun. Enjoy catered food and amenities throughout your stay.
