From canyons to sea, campers will be in awe of God's creation during this
week-long exploration of the ecosystems located right here in Southern
Orange County! Campers begin their week with team building and
Mythbuster-styled activities. Campers explore the ecosystems with a visit
to the tide pools at Dana Point and a marine mammal cruise. With
campfires, explorations, journaling and reflection, as well as stories to
learn and share, why wouldn’t you want to come explore nature’s wonders?
All staff members who lead activities are trained and verified in their proficiency. All camps have a Certified Health Supervisor or Registered Nurse on site for the duration of the program. Many camp staff are First Aid & CPR Certified. All lifeguards hold a current LG certification from the Red Cross.
Campers stay in cabins that are grouped by gender. In the event of a gender non-conforming camper or counselor, that person is placed according to the gender they identify with or their biological gender--dependent on which they prefer. Parents of campers in the shared lodging are informed ahead of time and given the option to switch cabins if they desire. There are typically at least two counselors in every cabin.
We maintain a minimum ratio of at least 1 staff person to 7 campers, according to ACA standards. Usually, we operate at a 1:4 ratio. Campers are supervised at all times, according to their age group.
3 well balanced meals and 2 snacks are served every full day of camp. Healthy alternative options are always available, including a deluxe salad bar, soup, and other choices. When you include dietary restriction information on your campers' health forms, our kitchen can prepare appropriate alternatives.
