Summer Youth Programs

Show your team spirit at Campus by the Sea's Jr High and High School Combo Summer Camp



Welcome to Intervarsity's Campus by the Sea on Catalina Island! Are you ready for an amazing Summer Camp that is literally located on the beach!? I'll tell you this, when you are out here on Catalina Island... EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!

We have amazing worship, teaching times, all camp games, recreation options and great food. Plus, you're on an island living that amazing "Island Life" being truly unplugged from the distractions of this world.  We are so excited for you to possibly come join us in all of the crazy fun Campus by the Sea has to offer. From stand up paddle boards, snorkeling, fishing, tubing behind a boat, 18 square in the air, Gaga Ball, all new disc golf course and The Water Totter [a teeter totter in the ocean] to brand new adventures for 2018- paintball and "Escape The Room." See you on the island!

Jr High and High School youth enjoy summer camp on Catalina Island at Campus by the Sea's Combo CampSummer 2018 we have a brand new theme... "Build". 

We are asking students [and leaders!] the tough question of "How Are You Building Your Faith?"  We will be looking at 5 different pieces of scripture as the "BUILD*-ing Blocks" [*see what I did there???] of our Faith and how we live out that faith. You might notice that theme looks like your favorite building blocks from Denmark, but we can't legally use their name. So please LEt it GO. :)

We know it can be a challenge to schedule multiple summer camps with different ages of students during the summer. We offer an integrated program that gives age-appropriate lessons for large and small groups with epic all-camp games and worship. ​Our program is designed to facilitate growth in your church youth group’s community. High School and Jr. High students are at different levels and at different steps in their journey with Christ. Our program addresses this through separate teaching times that go deeper with age-appropriate lessons and challenges but also engage everyone together in amazing community-building events.

Jr. High and High School summer campers hike out of CBS on way to Avalon on Catalina Island Our prayer is that we truly partner with your church Leaders to set you up for success not only at Campus by the Sea but for your ministry year-round. This is not your typical plug-and-play “church camp.” We are truly here to serve you in any way your church needs. 

We have 25+ Program Staff members to serve you and your group however you want to lead. Need a break? Our staff can lead your small group times. Want to lead? All spaces are open for you and your church to thrive. All programmatic elements are 100% optional or 100% mandatory… it all depends on what YOU as the CHURCH need.We take care off all the details so YOU the CHURCH can concentrate on Christ-building relationships with your students.
