Camp Emerald Bay is an award-winning premier camp destination for over 4500 Boy Scouts each summer.  It is located on the west end of Santa Catalina Island 22 miles off the coast of Los Angeles. Scouts can earn merit badges, pet a shark at the Pennington Marine Science Center, snorkel/canoe/kayak in beautiful coves, hike, stargaze during Emerald Bay's signature overnight experience War Canoe, and so much more!

Scouts have up to 3 merit badge or rank advancement opportunities.  Emerald Bay also offers other camp programs and troop bonding activities to choose from during free time.  For example, scouts can join Handicraft and Nature Staff during open sessions to stamp a leather belt, carve an original neckerchief slide, or hike.  Free time may be used to visit the Emerald Bay Ship's Store for scouting supplies, merit badge materials, souvenirs, and snacks/drinks.

Campers stay in 2-person wall tents (wooden platform to 2 cots/mattresses.)  Meals (salad bar and vegetarian options available) are provided in the newly remodeled Dining Hall.

Transportation (to/from Catalina Express Terminal in San Pedro, CA and boat ride to/from Catalina Island) is included in the ~$850 fee.  Our chartered bus will leave LAUMC on Sun, 6/14/2015, @ 3:30am and will return on Sat, 6/20/2015 @ 8:30pm (to be confirmed.)

Please sign up to reserve your spot now!  We have room for 35 scouts and 4 adults.  Interested uniformed adults leaders and other adults may contact Doug MacLeod for consideration and must be approved by both Doug and Chris Webb ... uniformed leaders will be given preference for the adult spots.

Update on 11/25:
There are 35 scouts and 4 adults signed up. We can probably add more spots so sign up if you are interested. The absolute limit on the number that can go is 51, which is the number of seats in the bus. If more than 40 scouts sign up, we will need one more adult to sign up.

This page will be updated as more information is made available.


  • Scouts will be responsible for taking their own medications 
  • All prescription medications must be listed on the health form 
  • T33 adult leaders keep a list of who needs medication when so we can follow up with scouts to make sure they are taking their medications.
