Girls Overnight

Coming this Friday, July 19-20: Our much-anticipated Cali Camp Overnight for Girls!

When:  Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.  Campers remain at camp on Friday afternoon or, if not a child’s regular day, overnighters may be brought to camp by parents after 3:45 pm (no earlier please, due to bus dismissal) to join the overnight and stay through Saturday morning.

Who: Girl campers and guests (ages 6-14 years). Campers may invite camp-age friends who do not attend Cali Camp for $99.00 per person as well (guests attending the overnight are to arrive at Cali Camp after camp day on Friday as described above.) Guests must check in at the main office and an adult must sign permission to attend, plus a health form. No one will be allowed at the overnight without signed health and permission forms.

Read the event flyer here or call (310) 455-0404 for more information.

Did you know? Cali Camp offers complete scheduling flexibility, so you can arrange a camp program that’s most convenient for your family schedule.

Come to camp for a single five-day, Monday-Friday session and check out all thirty activities at Cali Camp, or sign up for any daily combination – two, three or four days per week.  (Specialty camps are offered in Monday through Friday sessions.)

Our only requirement is that campers come for a minimum of five days. Which is barely enough time to fit in all the great activities at camp!

If you’ve read your Parents Handbook, you know which clothes your camper needs to bring to Cali Camp. But we wanted to remind you that some specialty camps have special footwear requirements.

For all activities, closed-toe shoes are required – except for beach trips, when children may wear sandals. Tennis shoes or sneakers are the norm for most every day, but for horseback riding, campers must wear boots or hard shoes with heels. We can’t let your child ride in tennis shoes! This is an important safety rule.

No flip flops are allowed during camp, another safety rule.

For Aerial Arts camp, all classes are done barefoot, but sometimes we warm up by running on the lawn, so please wear sneakers and socks.

And don’t forget: Write your child’s name on everything they bring to camp!

Don’t miss a chance for a summer horseback experience in the Santa Monica Mountains! Cali Camp offers an expanded program of horseback riding in morning and afternoon sessions, with multiple rings to ride in.

Lessons are given in English for campers ages 6-14; half of the day is spent with horses and the other half participating in regular camp activities, including swimming. And, to make sure every rider has the best possible experience, we determine campers’ skill levels before they put a foot in a stirrup. (Riders are required to wear boots with heels and long pants.)

Spots in this specialty camp sell out fast, so sign up early!
