Join us as we ferry over to Catalina Island for 5 wonderful days of service and exploration. We will have the opportunity to snorkel, kayak, hike and swim in the amazing coves around Catalina Island. We will also be learning about and helping our hosts preserve the natural grounds of this fragile ecosystem by learning to compost, repair trails, remove invasive plants and many other useful projects. Our meals will be provided by the camps food service and we will be staying in cabins just a few feet from the ocean. This is the best deal you’ll find for Catalina! The trip includes transportation from CSUSB to Catalina Island, meals, lodging in bunk cabins and activities. No special side trips are available and the group will be working and recreating together.
