Year after year, campers return to Catalina Sea Camp. Here’s why those campers and their parents say that it’s worth it.

Every time I set foot on the Toyon Bay pier, I feel like I have just arrived home after years away, even though in truth it hasn’t been long at all. The people at Sea Camp are truly the most wonderful, caring people I have ever met, and you just can’t replicate an atmosphere like that. I start counting down the days to the next summer the day I arrive on the mainland, and don’t stop until I’m on that pier again.

Sea Camp is one of my favorite places on Earth. I have made some of my best friends there and have broken out of my shell because of it. It is the one thing I look forward to every year. It don’t suck here!

Sam looked so alive when he got off the boat to come home. He was radiating excitement, happiness, and achievement. It was a wonderful experience for him.
