Glamping CIC Style!

What’s Included: all meals, restrooms, amenities, fire pits, sports equipment, and personally assigned wetsuits, life jackets, and water gear (snorkels, kayaks, & SUPs). New this Spring, we’ll include one 90-minute guided activity per day. Included activities that are led by CIC staff are garden & chickens, climbing wall, target sports, arts & crafts, and a scenic hike. Also, we’ll provide opportunities to sign up for fun excursions at an additional cost – try power boat tubing, sailing, a kayak/snorkel trip, elements of our high ropes course, and the famed night snorkel!

Come relax on our secluded beach while staying in our Catalina Island cabin rentals. Swim, kayak and snorkel in the cove and hike the local trails. Enjoy the night sky full of stars at a beach campfire with s’mores. We have set up camp for a small number of groups to safely share the beauty of Catalina Island.
