Summer Day Camp


Shafter Recreation and Park District Summer camp is NOT a drop-in-program. Please notify us at 661-910-8345 or 661-746-3303 if your student will miss the activity for that day. Any of the activities done that day will be missed and it will not be made up. Summer Camp runs from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Please make sure your student arrives prior to 9 am. If you’re arriving after 8:30 am, make sure to feed your student(s) breakfast. Pick-up times will start at 4:00 pm in the blue gym even though we are open until 5:30 pm.

If for any reason you need to pick up your student(s) before 4:00 pm, please call 661-910-8345 or 661-746-3303.


Parents or other adults authorized by parents to pick up a student are required to sign students in and out of the SRPD Summer Camp. The person designated to pick up or drop off student(s) will write the time arriving and leaving with the student. Identification may be required during this time. In an emergency, the parent or guardian with legal custody may call the SRPD Summer Camp Coordinator to authorize a change for the day, providing appropriate identification is presented. No one under the age of 16 may sign a student out of the Summer Camp. There are no exceptions to the sign in and out procedures, this is for safety purposes.


Participation in the SRPD Summer Camp is a privilege. All students must follow the rules of the Summer Camp. Any form of disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students or staff is a reason for dismissal. We encourage you to discuss concerns about your student’s behavior with the Summer Camp Coordinator.

Parent Support:

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep the SRPD Summer Camp staff informed of the current contact information for emergency cards and sign out sheets. Although the CHAMPS staff is committed and qualified, your help and communication with our staff is welcomed. Please be advised that a lack of parental support and cooperation and/or failure to follow program guidelines, could result in a child’s dismissal from the program without a refund.
