Since 1921, Camp Cherry Valley has provided a life-changing experience to over one-million youth. Located on Santa Catalina Island, Cherry Cove is renowned for its calm, crystal clear waters teeming with marine wildlife. The camp’s beautiful protective cove and sandy beach provide an unparalleled aquatic adventure for your Scouts and Units.

The camp offers many water sports opportunities, including world-class snorkeling, canoeing, rowing, sailing, and swimming. The cove is calm, making it a perfect place for lots of fun in the water. Hikes over mountainous terrain, war canoe races, touring an old silver mine, a sea lab with a touch tank so you can learn about local marine life is available.

You will enjoy camping in comfortable platform tents under a unique variety of cherry trees, a dining hall, and more. There are additional programs offered in spring and at the end of the summer for all Scouting and family camping levels.  

The slogan for our staff is “Where we make a difference.” To us however, it is not just a slogan, it is our mission. Since 1923 we have made a positive difference in the over 1 million youth who have attended our camp, many returning as staff. The unique location of our camp provides the opportunity for a life changing experience and memory they will cherish for a life time.
