Palmdale Oasis Park summer camp begins June 25

PALMDALE – Registration is on for the City of Palmdale’s weekly day camp for children entering first through eighth grade, which will begin Monday, June 25 and run through Aug. 31 at the Palmdale Oasis Recreation Center, located at 3850 E. Ave. S in Palmdale.

The weekly cost begins at $95 for residents and $114 for non-residents. Excursions are an additional fee. This year’s theme is a “Journey Through Time.”

“Campers will become ‘Trekkers’ through time and be ‘transported’ to random destinations using an ‘Imaginarium Machine’ to teleport into the past, present or future,” said Palmdale’s Program Coordinator Jennifer Tallakson.  “Each week Trekkers will navigate through time to discover and explore activities, contests and projects as they build lasting friendships along the way.”

Excursions are also planned for Six Flags Magic Mountain, El Capitan Theater and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!, the beach, Mountasia and DryTown Water Park for an additional fee during specific weeks.

The “Journey Through Time” day camp at Marie Kerr Park has begun and there are still a few openings available.

Advanced registration is required, and spaces are limited.

Registration is available online at; at the parks and recreation office 38260 10th St. East, Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., or at the Palmdale Oasis Park Recreation Center, 3850 East Ave. S, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 8 pm, and Wednesday and Friday from 3:30 to 6 pm.

    I understand this summer camp program as well as the one at Marie Kerr Park has been cancelled due to budget cuts. I’ve also heard that after school Fun Centers in East Palmdale were cut. Marie Kerr’s program used to offer childcare options for families on other school breaks as well such as: Thanksgiving, Winter & Spring. I would imagine notification could have been given to prior registrants of these day camps to allow families to prepare for ther childcare options, but it is my understanding this was not/will not be done. My fear is that they will be cutting the other Fun Center programs as well. It is not only unfortunate for the families who have relied on these programs for childcare, but for the staff who will be unemployed during these breaks.
