Please note the following – each camp is run independently of the others; each camp has its own application process; contact the appropriate camp director for information and an application; most camps (where appropriate) will provide lunch supervision and transportation to other CSULB summer camps; acceptance in one camp does not guarantee acceptance in another and enrollment is based on first-come basis; and camp dates, times and costs are subject to change.
