Summer camp has been a rite of passage for millions of children for generations. Campfires, crafts and outdoor activities combine with unique environments, new friends and time away from parents to create indelible memories that will last a lifetime. For millions of kids, those summer camp memories are made on Catalina Island.
This Southern California vacation hot spot is also home to several camps, ranging from scout camps to one of the top marine science camps in the country. Catalina Island camps offer both terrestrial and marine activities including hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and swimming as well as traditional summer camp activities like camp fires, crafts and sports. Some camps also offer ropes courses, scuba diving lessons and sailing. Summer camps on Catalina Island are located at Howland’s Landing, Toyon Bay, White’s Landing and many other lee side coves. The camps are offered by a number of different organizations, including Catalina Island Camps, Guided Discoveries and the boy and girl scouts.
