CAMP CHERRY VALLEY, located on Santa Catalina Island, offers opportunities for world class snorkeling,, hiking,, kayaking and swimming. CCV is located on the leeward side of the island, which means the cove is calm and protected from heavy surfs perfect place for lots of fun in the water! Hike-and-swims, touring an old silver mine, the sea lab with touch tank, camping in comfortable tents under a unique variety of cherry trees, outstanding food...it's all here waiting for you to discover!

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 watch movies, the lake, the jungle ride, 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. More info Link
