The 2024 Summer Fun Program is scheduled to run from June 10 through July 26, 2024. An updated list of 2024 Summer Fun sites, along with keiki registration dates and additional program details, will be announced later. Typically keiki registration is held in early May, and will be conducted primarily online using the website.

Summer Fun is an affordable, city-operated, seasonal day camp where children are engaged in learning experiences in a fun and safe environment. These opportunities help build on soft skills, which promote leadership and future educational and lifelong success. DPR aims to accommodate approximately 10,000 keiki and teens in the 2024 program, which requires more than 500 seasonal staff. Ultimately, the more staff we get, the more keiki we can accommodate, the more fun it is for everyone. So, apply today to be a part of this amazing park program!
