Paintball Summer Camp -- What is It, Why Should I Sign Up, and Other Questions Answered

Paintball Summer Camp in San Diego

Oh, no. The babysitter bailed. 

Your kids need supervision, but you're stuck. Then, someone tells you about this paintball facility in San Diego. 

At first, you're skeptical. How could a paintball facility supervise my children throughout the summer? Why can't a daycare do the trick?

Then, you hear how it's safe, affordable, and fun for all ages. After hearing this, you might have more questions. Below are the questions you might ask. 

What is low-impact paintball?

Paintball is a sport where kids run around and play games -- all while shooting balls of paint at each other. There are obstacles stationed throughout the facility, and kids are split into teams. Adult supervisors are present, making sure the facility is safe.

Paintball is a glorified version of tag. Once you're hit with the paintball, you're out. No questions asked. This creates less controversy than tag because there's evidence that someone hit you with a paintball. With less controversy comes more fun.

In normal paintball guns, the paintballs are .68 caliber, or .68 inches in diameter. These larger balls need more force to shoot out of the barrel of the gun, therefore these hurt more. Our paintballs are .50 caliber, or 1/2 inch diameter paintballs. Our guns are set to a lower setting so kids can still play without worrying about bruises, welts, or other damage to their body.

Is paintballing safe?

Safer than baseball, running, and surfing. You can wear layers to protect yourself. On bare skin, getting hit with a paintball is like a rubber band snapping you. 

What is Paintball Summer Camp?

Paintball Summer Camp is San Diego Paintball Park's unique service for kids who are bored during their summer break. Between 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM, your son or daughter will explore our facilities, make new friends, and have fun.

You can let your kids stay for a day, a week, or multiple weeks.

What are the benefits from paintballing?

1) Exercise

Your kids will run around our facility, dodging paintballs and maneuvering through the obstacles. There are games that's fun for all participants, whether it's Capture the Flag or the Elimination Game. Every step they take is another positive step to a healthy lifestyle.

2) Teamwork

In most instances, your child will have to work as a team to win the game. No one can win alone, and every member on the team has a role. Instead of trying for the starring role, be a star in your role.

3) New experiences

The best way for kids to grow is to put them in uncomfortable situations. How do they respond to a competitive sport? Will they fall under the pressure, or will they carry the team on their back and claim victory?

Every day, your child will learn something new about their abilities. Let them grow with these new experiences. Your child's brains will fire new nerves with each new experience, allowing their brain to grow in the process.

4) Mental game

Paintball is mentally challenging. Of course, having a shooter's eye is good, but being in the right position at the right time is even better. It's like a basketball player seeing the court and watching each player move, then deciding what the next steps should be.

5) Release stress of daily life

Some adults blow off steam at the firing range. Think of paintballing as a stress-reliever for kids. Instead of punching a hole in the wall, your child can try to win a competition and blow off some steam.

6) Objectives and focus

With each game, there is a primary objective. This objective forces kids to focus on the task at hand. There are different methods of achieving that goal, but each method has steps, and each child has to focus on the current step.

7) Less stressful than organized sports

Organized sports can have a negative effect on kids. They're great for kids who want to exercise and have fun, but other organized sports are more serious than ever before. Kids don't view organized sports as enjoyable anymore.

Instead, in a controlled environment without parents, kids can have fun in our paintball facility. There are a few prizes, but in the end, paintballing is all about having fun. 

8) Sleep at night

Do you want your kids to go to sleep faster? Let them run around all day, and they won't be wired at night. Especially if you drop off your kids for an entire day at our facility. We'll make sure you kid is tired at the end of the day.

How old do you have to be to enjoy San Diego Paintball Park?

We accept anyone older than 6. 

Do I have to stay, or can I drop off my kid and go to work?

You can drop off your kid and go to work. Think of us as a glorified babysitting service that provides entertainment and food for your kid. 

How does this compare to babysitting services?

In San Diego, most pay their babysitters (if the sitter is over 21 years old) $12 an hour. For eight hours, that's $96 per day. 

At our facility, it's $60 per day, or $240 per week.

For our weekly specials, pay for 4 days, and leave your kids at our place on the 5th day for free. We also have special deals if you are interested in signing up for multiple weeks.
