Point Lobos Summer Adventures Program

Summer Adventure Logo


The Point Lobos Summer Adventures program is an outdoor day camp for kids ages 8 to 12.  The goal of the program is to expose children to the joys of exploring and recreating in our parks.  The program is based at Point Lobos but includes visits to numerous local parks. 


In 2015, the cost to register for the program was $350 for each 2-week session. Registration fees cover the costs of the required uniform and all trips and experiences associated with the program including items such as kayak rental, whale watching and honorariums to various, non-profit presenters.
