Recreation camps offer participants the opportunity to challenge themselves to explore what they love, learn new skills and forge lasting friendships in a safe, supportive environment.


Summer Camp Registration

Registration for summer camp begins at 10 a.m. April 23. Here is a sneak peek at dozens of camp adventures so you can start planning your summer. We're proud of what we have planned, and we're so excited to see everyone, but we want to be honest about a few challenges we're facing.


Compared to pre-pandemic levels, Eugene Rec is severely understaffed, especially when it comes to lifeguards and summer camp staff. We hire a large percentage of the temporary and part-time employees at the City of Eugene who help put on all of the fantastic camps and Rec swims throughout the summer. We're doing everything we can to avoid cancelations and long waitlists and we appreciate your patience.
