1-Week Program Ages 8-13

Daily Camp Life


It goes without saying that Catalina Sea Camp’s one week program is an amazing adventure full of snorkeling, boat trips, aquaria, hands-on marine science and the chance to see all kinds of animals in the wild. All of these events are sure to capture your imagination and make for a one-of-a-kind experience! This is only one part of Sea Camp’s one week program. However, much of the excitement of camp comes from the traditional summer camp activities that you’ll participate in. In fact, if you ask return campers they’ll tell you the reason they keep coming back is the camp community, traditions, social activities and the friends they’ve made!

Morning Core Activities
Each morning campers participate in 2 activity periods, each lasting 90 minutes. These programs are specialized and designed for the camper group, according to age. Catalina Sea Camp aims to give campers a taste of all the amazing activities our camp can offer.

Elective Afternoon Activities
During the afternoon, campers ages 10-13 can choose two periods of electives, each lasting 90 minutes. These activities are designed for each individual camper to be fun and unique. Electives change each afternoon. Activities are offered multiple times throughout the session.

Social Night Programs
Each and every night we’ve planned some amazing summer fun. These activities are designed for campers to hang out with their own age or the entire camp community. All of the night programs are social, fun, interactive, and engaging. At the end of the day, camp comes together for a closing campfire, where campers and staff perform songs and skits to bring an end to an exciting day.
