CAMP TRASK is a unique and very special place.  Located in Monrovia Canyon, it seems like you are millions of miles away from the city!  The silence in camp is broken only by the sound of the yearend stream which flows through camp.  There are no city lights, so you can see the stars at night.   There are lots of reasons to come to Trask:  the new dining hall, the great pool, the outdoor amphitheater where you can have a great Campfire program or watch a movie, the lake with boats, Fort, the tree house, hiking trails, and more.  But the best reason to come to Trask is: you.   This is the only place where you can "get away from it all" so quickly and conveniently.
