There is no other overnight summer camp in southern California like MSA’s program on Santa Catalina Island. Campers enjoy a full week of such incredibly fun activities as boating, paddleboarding, exploring sea caves and hidden coves, swimming at remote beaches, kayaking, snorkeling and building new friendships that often last a life time.
