View of Emerald Bay

Camp Emerald Bay, located on scenic Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California, has a program for everybody. We serve over 7,000 people in one year with a variety of opportunities both fun and educational. Our Fall and Spring programs are exceptionally diverse, providing opportunities for YMCA groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, Cub Scout Packs, club fundraisers, family get-togethers, and even the occasional wedding!

We are committed to providing experiences that build character, foster citizenship, and provide for personal growth through challenging and stimulating programs.

Our summertime opportunities are centered on programs for the Boy Scouts of America. We recognize the value of summer camp as a catalyst to fulfill the goals and aspirations established by your troop's leadership. As such, we want to play an active role in fulfilling your troop’s needs. Older scouts can explore the island in new ways within our Rugged Adventurers Program and develop leadership skills in our Senior Patrol Leader Program.

Thank you for your interest in Camp Emerald Bay! We hope to see you soon!
