Our Purpose

We offer our participants the opportunity to explore California’s wilderness environment through programs which are challenging and educational, promoting leadership and character development in the youth of tomorrow, as well as a respect for the environment and their surroundings.

Though not exclusive to the Boy Scouts of America, we are owned and operated by the Western Los Angeles County Council, BSA.


The first of our programs, you can select from 6 to 11 day treks that take you to gorgeous meadows, crystal clear streams, invigorating hot springs, breath-taking mountain peaks, gigantic trees and some of the most beautiful scenery of the continental United States.
