Day Camp Information

The City of Arlington Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment for participants. We welcome all people no matter their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or age (program specific).

We have developed a program that enables campers to thrive in a program knowing they are safe, respected, and treated with kindness by their peers and counselors. A Program Participant Pledge will be provided and can be found on our website. We ask that parents read and discuss this pledge with their camper.

Standard of Care

The City of Arlington is not regulated by any licensing agency because it is a municipality. We are asked to complete several requirements in order to have that licensing waived. Click here to view a complete copy of the Standards of Care. 


Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is limited space in camp at each location. Payment is due in full at the time of registration. Staff are unable to hold any spots for customers. Registration and payment are the only sure way to guarantee a space for camp on any given week.
