Camp Trask Reservation & Activities

Camp Trask is a special place, tucked into Monrovia Canyon, only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city. A brief drive up a meandering road camp and you are suddenly into a calming wilderness setting. The silence in camp is broken only by the sound of the year-round stream which flows through camp.

There are no city lights, so you can see the stars at night. There are lots of reasons to come to Trask: The dining hall, great swimming pool, Fort Rotary, showers and flush toilets, and outdoor amphitheater for campfire programs.

Important Notice:

To all our Scouting family and friends, Camp Trask has provided clean potable drinking water for over 40 years in accordance with State and local rules in regards to constant monitoring and testing and has met standards for MCLs and water quality.

Due to state requirements, the Trask water system design needs to be upgraded to meet a current detention time standard, we are currently correcting this design issue so that we continue providing our customers with quality water.

Until then, please bear with us, we are asking that when you visit Camp Trask you bring your own drinking and washing water to camp.

If you should have any questions, please contact the Camp Ranger.

Thank you, Ranger Anthony
