Camp Cherry Valley & Activities

Camp Cherry Valley - Catalina Island is the most popular Boy Scout Summer Camp in the Western United States Located on legendary Santa Catalina Island, it is a ferry ride across the channel to a camp that dates to the 1920s.

Camp Cherry Valley offers opportunities for many water sports including world-class snorkeling, SCUBA diving, canoeing, rowing, sailing and swimming. Because it is located on the leeward side of the island, 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.

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 levels in Scouting and family camping.
