The Family Vacation Center offers activities to suit every vacationer.
You may choose to be very active playing golf in the
morning, tennis in the afternoon, and casino games
at night. Or you can sleep in, read all day, and go to a movie at
night. You may want to take the family for a day of exploring Santa
Barbara and not join in any of the activities. Its always
up to you!

tennis, golf, basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, surfing,
kayaking, biking, hiking, and jogging. Vacationers also have access

with their hands. Adult activities also include a tour of Santa
Barbara wine country, natural history hikes, faculty lectures, an adults-only
dinner, dancing, and much more.
Group activities for children are scheduled daily from
9:00am till mid-evening. Children up to 18 are grouped by age and cared
for by trained counselors. Every day is a new adventure for all
ages. Younger children generally stay inside the camp, going
for walks, doing arts and crafts, and making friends. Older
children venture out into the communitywith trips to local parks,
the movies, the beach, and more. Teens have a great vacation experience
with counselors who are cool enough to gear activities
to their preferences.
