Outpost Summer Camps: Traditional Day Camps for children ages 3-5 and 6-14
Contact Information
Outpost Summer Camps is an American Camp Association accredited day camp serving San Diego families since 2001. We offer intentionally-designed programs to provide a wonderful summer camp experience for children ages 3 to 14. Campers experience the powerful feeling of belonging, make and keep new friends, and connect with our nurturing counselors.
Our Pre Camp program, for children 3-5 years old, is located at the North City Presbyterian Church in Poway, just off of I-15 and Poway Rd. Pre Camp is what we like to call the "perfect first camp experience”- created by our directors to be a nurturing introductory camp program just for preschoolers. Campers are able to enjoy a day of sunshine, outdoor fun, arts & crafts, and more. Our hand-picked staff is intentional in creating friendships between the campers and getting to know each camper individually. Sessions are two and three weeks long with M-F, MWF and TTH options, and the camp day is from 9:30AM to 1:30PM. Groups are very small (10 campers per group) with three staff each.
Summer 2015 enrollment is now open online. Come Join the Adventure today and spend your summer making memories with Outpost! 



Guests can celebrate the natural world we share by learning about SeaWorld’s animal rescue and conservation programs and ways that they can make a difference with their own everyday actions during Wild Days weekends in March.

The Empire Returns

The Empire returns to LEGOLAND California with the largest LEGO Star Wars Miniland model display.  Beginning on March 4, the galaxy's most powerful weapon is unveiled.  The LEGO Star Wars Miniland Death Model Display.
Featuring a planet-destroying super laser, the massive LEGO model is made out of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks and includes a display of the famous trench run scene where Luke Skywalker maneuvered his X-wing fighter through the combat zone to destroy the Death Star.  Adjacent to the LEGO Death Star, guests are invited to use their imaginations to construct their own LEGO starships at building stations while X-Wings, TIE Fighers and Y-Wings circle overhead.
