Yes, but only on Visitor’s Day. Visitor’s Day is always held on the last Sunday of each 3-week session. Parents and guests must register through your camper’s CampMinder Account. Please login to your camper account HERE then click on “Additional Options.” There is a $30 per person charge to attend, and once that charge has been paid for each person, you are then registered. The per person charge is required to help defray the cost of shoreboat transportation and lunch provided. We usually expect about 300 guests on Visitor’s Day. Because of these large numbers, we must limit each camper to three guests. Due to safety concerns, Sea Camp is not open to visitors at any other time.
Visitor’s Day is a wonderful opportunity for you to visit your camper, meet our incredible counselors and instructors, and to see the Sea Camp program and campus. The day will include a luncheon, and all guests will have the opportunity to snorkel, kayak, sport climb and visit our marine science labs in the afternoon.
Please Note: You must arrange your own travel to and from Avalon.
You should make your reservation early (we recommend at least two weeks prior to Visitor’s Day). Plan to arrive in Avalon no later than 11 a.m. to catch the shoreboats to camp. Shoreboats will begin departing the Avalon Boat Dock (called “the Mole”) as soon as people arrive via Catalina Express and depart for camp every 20 minutes. Please arrive at the Mole no later than 11 a.m. to ensure that all guests get to camp as soon as possible. Shoreboats will leave Toyon Bay for the return trip to Avalon starting at approximately 3 p.m. and run until 4:30 p.m. The shoreboat ride takes about 20 minutes, so please allow plenty of time to catch your return transportation to the mainland.
For Boat Transportation to Avalon call: Catalina Express at 310.510.1212.
