COMMUNITY MEMBERS INVITED TO SIGN UP YOUTH FOR SUMMER CAMP
WHO: Youth from Santa Barbara and surrounding communities
WHAT: Camp Whittier has spaces available for its over-night sleep-away camp in July. Our location, nestled among the hills of Los Padres National Forest, is adjacent to Lake Cachuma. With 55-acres, this rustic camp provides a site rich with wildlife and shady, oak-filled scenery. Camp Whittier is ACA accredited, in a safe environment, with experienced teachers and staff.
Camper activities are designed to promote teambuilding, stewardship, and personal connections by focusing on renewing our connections to the earth and each other. The daily rhythm of lessons will include hands on projects, leadership opportunities, and outdoor skills as well as time to relax and enjoy our idyllic setting. In the evening, all campers will come together as a village for a time of skits, music, and educational programs. Participants will learn new skills which will challenge and empower them to generate concepts of responsible use of resources and an appreciation of our natural surroundings.
Camper activities include; Swimming, Arts and crafts, Drama and skits, Archery, Rock wall, Ropes course, Outdoor Education and Exploration, Nature Hikes, Star gazing, Evening pow-wows.
