Join us on a trip to beautiful Catalina Island for your own private paradise vacation. This year we will celebrate our summertime getaway with a Hawaiian /Polynesian theme. Think surfboards, flowers, tropical fruit, palm trees, umbrellas in your drinks, surfers, warm weather, hula dancers, and nothing but fun fun fun!!! Get out your Hawaiian shirts and skirts and bring them along because we want to see them this year --loud and proud.
A fantastic 3-day Catalina Island Hawaiian Theme vacation awaits you twenty-six miles across the ocean at Camp Emerald Bay (this year also known as Camp Waimea Bay). If you like to mix endless fun activities, Hawaiian style, and great people with a beautiful coastline along with crystal blue water, then look no further! This trip has been occurring annually for over 15 years now and it gets better every year.
Activities: Your weekend boasts a full schedule of both day and nighttime organized activities. Daytime fun includes: leader led hikes, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, volleyball, sunbathing, scavenger hunt, fun competitions, optional non-Sierra Club sponsored Scuba diving* and plenty more. Nighttime activities include: happy hour, karaoke, optional singles’ mixers, dance lessons with expert teachers, dancing to hip tunes played by a DJ, games, campfire hosted by a professional musician, or simply relaxing and stargazing. You might even find yourself at a Luau.
Boat Transportation: We will be chartering two boats that will depart from and return to Long Beach. The boats will depart on Saturday morning (31st) and return Monday (2nd) afternoon. We are still in the process of determining exact departure/return times.
Accommodations: Choose between pre-assembled platform tents (wood floor, canvas walls/roof, cots with mattress --typically hold up to two persons with no setup required) or share rustic cabins (single beds for up to 8 persons) with friends. Cabins are same sex. Couples can push together two cots in the platform tents. There are plenty of hot showers and restrooms, as well as other creature comforts. Plug in for electrical items available in cabins.
Arrangements can be made to share a cabin with groups of friends. If you don’t have a roommate in mind, no worries! You will easily meet people on the boat ride over or just pick a place on your own.
Food: Great food is prepared daily by experienced camp staff. Breakfast typically includes eggs, pancakes, cereal, and much more. Lunches are simple, usually either a sandwich bar or hot food. Dinners may include chicken one night and steak the other with veggie options; and of course we always have dessert. You will not be disappointed.

The group size is typically around 300 people and the age range varies from 20s to 50s on this well attended trip. We set-up many activities to help people make new friends.
