Parks and Recreation

Day Camp
We are taking Day Camp sign-ups for Carson residents only. Day Camp is Monday-Friday from 7am-6pm. Information on the camp is available in the Parent Handbook and Registration Packet. Capacity is limited. For more information, call (310) 847-3570 or contact the park.

Volunteer Opportunities
Carson is rich with opportunities for civic engagement. Every year, hundreds of volunteers donate their time at our city's parks and our recreation programs to give back to the community with their incredibly talented abilities. Volunteers from all different ages, abilities, and backgrounds come together to support a variety of excellent programs and special events.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for students in high school and colleges seeking to fulfill a community service requirement.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the following application: You may submit your application to any local park or the Corporate Yard.

For more information, please contact your local park or the Recreation and Human Services Office at 310-847-3570.

    Planning and prioritizing renovations for recreation centers

    Many communities across the country are emerging from the recession with new energy, new life and new ideas for their future. While budgets are loosening, recreation organizations are still limited when it comes to undertaking new projects. Construction of a new recreation center is still out of reach for many organizations, but long-desired renovations of an existing facility might be feasible — at least some of them.
