Church Retreat
Campus by the Sea on Catalina Island
August 22-24, 2008
Registration [PDF - 372KB] and Camp Medical Release Form due by August 3

Campus by the Sea (CBS) is a non-profit camp operated by InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. CBS is located on Catalina Island, three miles west of the town of Avalon. Its secluded beach is nestled between two mountain ridges. The only access to camp is by boat or hiking, as there is no road into camp. CBS provides a setting for retreats that is free from many of the mainland “distractions.” It is a place to appreciate nature and enjoy a simple lifestyle.

While at CBS, we will enjoy opportunities to recreate together, study together, play together and eat together. With hiking, beachfront activities, basketball, volley ball, ping pong, and a playground area there is something for everyone who is looking to get away and enjoy the outdoors.

Informal worship times together will be family-friendly, and supervised activities will be offered for children during the optional adult teaching and discussions. Meals will be provided from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. Sleeping will be in enclosed cabins, open air cabins, or tents.

All inclusive package includes: roundtrip boat transportation, 6 meals, lodging and retreat materials.
Retreat is limited to 65 people.

  • $165 for adults
  • $133 for children ages 3-12
  • $85 for children under 3
