Optional Activities

With High School Camp moving from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz we are in the process of dreaming up extra excursions and activities. Don’t worry, we will let all registered campers know about any activity that gets added as we continue to plan! Take a look at what we have going on!

  • Surfing

    Santa Cruz is recognized as one of the best places to learn how to surf in California. There is nothing quite like the thrill of standing up and riding a wave. Our qualified staff will hook you up with all the gear, some solid instruction, and then together you will head to the local waves for an unforgettable surf session. Our two hours sessions occur prior to breakfast.

    There is a $35 additional fee. Sign up during the camp registration process and register early because it fills up fast.

  • Ridge Camp

    Take on our high ropes adventures course located on a beautiful ridge overlooking our hiking trails, 40ft in the air! Push yourself as you tackle elements and work as a team to encourage one another through the Ridge Camp loop.

    There is a $25 additional fee. Sign up during the camp registration process.

  • Kayak Nature Tour

    Explore the Santa Cruz shorelines in a kayak. Enjoy a relaxing morning paddle on the bay.  It’s easy, safe, and fun. We will begin near the wharf and pass by seals and otters as we glide through the waters near Lighthouse Point.

    There is a $75 additional fee. Sign up during the camp registration process.

  • Mystery Spot Tour

    The Mystery Spot is a gravitational anomaly located in the redwood forests just outside of Santa Cruz, California. It is a circular area of effect around 150 feet or 46 meters in diameter. Within the Mystery Spot, you will be stunned as your perceptions of the laws of physics and gravity are questioned. But don’t take our word for it, come and decide for yourself! Take a tour of this weird Santa Cruz Landmark.

    There is a $16 additional fee. Sign up during the camp registration process.

  • Whale Watching Tour

    Join us on a Santa Cruz Whale Watching Tour. Climb aboard and experience the Monterey Bay area like never before! Take a trip to the heart of whale territory as we spot these magnificent creatures and much more!
