CATALINA ISLAND SUMMER CAMP ACTIVITIES
Three-Week Program, Ages 12-17

Catalina Sea Camp’s three-week program features diving, sailing, marine biology, and adventure courses you will never forget. If you ask return campers why they keep coming back, they’ll tell you, aside from the great activities and the beautiful camp, it is the Catalina Island summer camp community, traditions, and the friends they’ve made! The second you get to Toyon Bay, you’ll become a part of this unique community! Throughout your three-week program experience, you will be placed in a crew, depending on your age. Five nights at camp are crew nights where you will participate in beach parties, outdoor movies, campfires, karaoke, games, dances, gaga ball, volleyball, and other fun activities. Crew nights change every year, so it is always something new and exciting.
