Teen Programs

Teens have a variety of Teen Group Events and Outings as well as being able to participate in many of the adult activities and classes.

Teen activities are centered around the UCSB campus and local Santa Barbara area.  Each week Vacationers age 12-18 will experience an opening night trip to the local ice cream parlor, a teambuilding experience at the UCSB Ropes Course, a teen focused trip downtown for shopping and movies and bowling, surfing lessons, pool party, hiking trips to the local mountains and so much more!
