The Camden Community Center is a welcoming, positive place that provides a wide variety of quality programs and services for people of all ages and abilities aimed at building community through fun. As the largest hub facility in San José, Camden Community Center is your one-stop shop for recreation opportunities and community events.  Program and activities include, but are not limited to; San José Recreation Preschool, leisure, health and wellness classes, and youth summer camps. In addition, we offer a weekday lunch program and classes for older adults over the age of 60 and those who are disabled. We also host a number of special events through the year such as Neighbor Nights, and cultural and holiday celebrations. Camden is home to a year-round aquatics program with lap swim and swim lessons as well as a large fitness room.

The Center is perfect for rentals for events such as weddings, quinceaňeras, bar mitzvah/bat mitzvah, baptisms, and business meetings throughout the year. You can visit our Programs and Facilities pages for more information.
