Buckley Summer Camp is a day-camp oasis tucked in a quiet, green canyon in Sherman Oaks. Our summer camp offers many program options every week for both Buckley and non-Buckley students entering kindergarten through grade eight.
 
Our camp features:
  • Top-quality instruction from experienced professionals
  • A safe and secure environment on The Buckley School’s serene, 18-acre campus nestled in a wooded canyon in Sherman Oaks
  • An opportunity for every student to be successful and develop a passion for a variety of activities
Campers can join us for one, several, or all sessions. All programs are open to students from Buckley and other schools.

As educators and parents, we know how special summer should be for children. The Buckley School Summer Camp combines creative, fun, educational, and athletic courses with top-notch facilities and superb teachers so that kids can be kids on their summer break.
