Our 38th summer camp season is on its way! To celebrate, we’ll be highlighting each course over the coming weeks. This week, we’re featuring the California Coastal Adventure, one of SOAR’s two California Summer Camps! This 10 day course is a water lover’s paradise, filled with aquatic adventures in beautiful beach locales. 

On this 10-day adventure, campers will travel along the Southern California coast, stopping at some of it’s most beautiful locales including the Channel Islands, Santa Cruz Island, Scorpion Bay, Morro Bay, Big Sur, and Lake Casitas.

Water Lovers

Being on the southern California coast, this course is naturally packed with aquatic adventures! After meeting up with their group, campers will spend their first full day hanging it loose at Surf School. Hear they’ll learn all about types of surf breaks, the importance of safety, environmental stewardship, and how to ride the waves! Over the next 10 days, campers will go sea kayaking, snorkeling, and choose to take on paddle boarding or deep sea fishing.

Study and Explore the Marine Life

Campers will get up close and personal with some of the coast’s most remarkable marine and wildlife. Camper will stop in the Channel Islands Visitor Center and get a brief overview aquatic and marine life to look for during their adventure. Campers will sea kayak among the Channel Island’s wildlife with the chance to hold a sea urchin! Campers will also explore the area by land while day hiking and rock climbing with the chance to see young eagles, brown pelicans, and the rare island fox!

Beach Oasis

The California Coastal Adventure is ideal for campers who are looking for just the right amount of adventure and challenge. With temperatures averaging about 70 degrees in the summer time, campers will feel like they’ve landed in summer camp paradise.
