More Information on Summer Camps

Registration & Eligibility

UCLA Rec Summer Camps registration is now open to all. 

Fees are categorized in a 3-tiered payment system:

Tier 1: Current UCLA Students

Tier 3: UCLA Faculty & Staff

Tier 5: All Others

Before registering for camp:

Please make sure your account is set up and your pricing tier is activated! Carefully follow the steps below to confirm your eligibilty:

STEP 1. Make sure you have access to your account in the UCLA Recreation Webstore

Current UCLA students, faculty, and staff:

  • Choose “Click here for UCLA Logon,” and sign in through your UCLA Single Sign On credentials.

Returning Families:

  • If you have already created a profile, sign in using the username and password you previously set.

New Families:

  • If this is your first time visiting our online store, click “SIGN UP” to make a new profile. Please do not create a profile under your dependent’s name - create a profile under the parent/guardian’s name, as it will ask you to add your dependents after. When creating your profile, enter your Recreation ID number as your “Member Information”, if applicable. If you are not affiliated with the university, leave “Member Information” blank.

STEP 2. Confirm that your dependents are linked to your account.

Once you are signed in, access your profile by clicking your username or icon in the upper right. At the bottom of the profile page you can view and add dependents.

STEP 3: Activate your correct pricing tier by emailing campregistration@recreation.ucla.edu*

*Returning camp families from the prior 3 years are already activated with the correct tier and will only need to email us if you added new dependents or if you encounter the error ‘Active Membership Required’. If you are not sure if your pricing tier has been activated, access ‘Memberships’ under your profile in the webstore. If activated, a membership should appear with the title ‘Camp Price Tier______’ and the camp pricing will update automatically.

Navigating the webstore:

Once all 3 steps above are complete, you are ready to register! Direct links for registration can be found on the camp offering pages, or you can navigate using the below steps in the UCLA Recreation Webstore: https://secure.recreation.ucla.edu/ 

  1. Sign in in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Click "ALL Activities" icon.
  3. Under ‘Classification’ in the left-hand column, select ‘Youth and Family Programs’ 
  4. Under ‘Quarters’, select ‘Summer 2022’. 
  5. Find the desired program (sorted alphabetically), and the desired offering (sorted by session date). Click the blue “register” button.
  6. Select the dependent to register and follow the prompts through to your shopping cart to checkout.

Any questions about registration should be directed to campregistration@recreation.ucla.edu
