    Nestled in a wondrous natural world in the heart of rock-lined Topanga Canyon, Cali Camp is a welcome kids camp adventure in Los Angeles. A place to roam streams, meadows and oak trees. Forget the city – enter the new world. Established in 1955, our iconic summer camp welcomes boys and girls, ages 3 to 15, to the Santa Monica Mountains. Our staff holds hundreds of years of combined experience.

    Cali Camp is a place of ultimate fun. Yet, activities – from rock climbing for kids to art, from adventure camp to equestrian camp – only launch every camper’s experience. In a transcendently-beautiful sky-ceilinged land, campers reclaim their connection to the environment and its springboard for their imaginations. 

    Just minutes from the Los Angeles westside, Cali Camp is 21 acres of creek beds, dramatic rock formations, bamboo forests, old oaks and incredible wildlife in Old Topanga Canyon. Next door lies miles of protected Santa Monica Mountains hiking and equestrian trails.

    At Cali Camp, each camper will experience a dazzling variety of over 50 mini-adventure with activities and exciting special events to express their individual interests and curiosity. Whether visiting for the whole summer or just a week, every camper will reconnect with the environment’s wonder and reclaim the magic it offers.

    Since Cali Camp was established in 1955, counselors and staff have returned year after year. More than a half century of success and experience has taught us how to help each camper flourish physically, socially and spiritually. Campers learn the joy of PLAY and celebrate together. This is what makes us one of the premier summer camps in Los Angeles.

    At Cali Camp, every camper is set free to dream—supported as they make new friends, grow confident from adventures, and learn to celebrate the positive attributes in one another. Cali Camp is space of no-limits, beauty, power and never-ending FUN!
