How old do you have to be to get a summer job in California?
14, there are limits on what jobs and when you can work as well as the total number of hours per week but it is legal to do almost any job that is not considered hazardous and the employer will hire you.

For info about the jobs you can do, hours you can work, how to obtain a California Minor Work Permit and other useful facts got to:
US Department of Labor
State of California
Department of Industrial Relations
Division of Labor Standards Enforcement

Most businesses are individually owned and operated so it is the owner’s policy and past experience with minors that will determine if they will hire you. Apply everywhere you can, the worse that can happen is they don't hire you.

In every state without a permit you can:
Work in a business owned or operated by your parents
Deliver newspapers/periodicals
Work as an actor/ess in radio, TV or the theater
Caddy at a public course
Work as an umpire/referee in a municipal league
Work on a private farm picking and/or selling fruits and vegetables
Do casual labor (work for an individual in their home) such as pet-sitting, baby-sitting, running errands, tutoring, and yard-work etcetera...
