Campus by the Sea sponsors quality programs for a variety of age groups:

College Students

InterVarsity College Students enjoy CBS waterfrontWe were founded as the West Coast training center for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, a ministry to college students at universities throughout the United States. Students from schools in Southern California participate in weekend events during the fall months. Week long programs, focusing on intensive bible study, are conducted during spring and early summer.

Junior High and High School

Teenagers will enjoy four multi-night sessions to choose from for fun, excitement and spiritual growth. These sessions are for Jr. High and High School age groups, combined. Combo camps allow student ministry pastors and youth leaders who direct both age groups to come to one program that serves the individualized needs for both age groups. One four-night session in early June and three sessions in mid-August.

Outdoor Education

We host the Long Beach Marine Institute during the fall and spring. They conduct marine science programs for school age children. The ultimate, sea-side outdoor education experience in Southern California for public and private schools. Two-night, four-night and day trip excursions available. Packages include roundtrip transportation on research vessel, lodging, meals, instructors and curriculum.

Alumni & Friends Camp

Alumni & Friends Camp is an opportunity to return to CBS or even visit for the first time. All are welcome - recent grads, seasoned alum, singles, families, and empty nesters! Come on your own or with a group of friends.  We encourage return guests to invite people they want to introduce to this beautiful getaway and the ministry of InterVarsity. The week will allow the chance to unplug and make space for God to speak through morning manuscript study, afternoon free-time and evening worship.

Family Camp

CBS would love for you to join us for the reboot of CBS Family Camp. This 4-day, 3-night get-away with a purpose has programming options for both children and adults, but is a chance for guests to unplug (literally) and get away, together as a family, to take full advantage of the rest and relaxation that awaits everyone who comes to this beautiful, private cove.

For all of CBS program and guest group camps, guests are expected to participate in scheduled sessions and activities.
