Why are There Different Prices for Camp?

Destiny Arts Center strives to make our programs affordable to all. We do this by offering classes and camps on a sliding scale fee for families and caregivers. You choose the amount that you are able to pay and Destiny Arts Center does not require proof of income. We know that our families will be as generous as they can.

The City of Oakland subsidizes camp fees for youth living in Oakland through the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth. This enables us to offer camp at a lower cost for these youth.

Please call Destiny Arts Center program staff with any questions regarding Camp Destiny at 510-597-1619.

See you this summer!
