ACADEMY BY THE SEA SUMMER CAMP
Academy by the Sea (ABTS) is an exclusive co-educational camp experience for bold, brilliant young people entering grades 7 through 12. During this two-week adventure, campers will learn the fundamentals of leadership while exploring an array of subjects like aviation, drone piloting, and aquaculture. Our innovative summer leadership camp program is focused on developing whole-person excellence. Come find out what has made the Academy one of Southern California’s premiere camp destinations for decades! This year’s camp runs from July 8th – 20th, 2024.
LEARN TO LEAD
Academy by the Sea isn’t just another summer camp. Participants will learn the foundations of leadership in a hands-on program based on a unique curriculum combining Junior ROTC fundamentals with influences from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Over two weeks, campers will have fun as they learn how to become self-disciplined and resilient leaders building responsibility, independence, and confidence. They will develop positive relationships in an environment that promotes community and learn to avoid and resolve conflicts while demonstrating respect for others, raising self-esteem, and striving for the realization of their potential.
EXPLORE NEW INTERESTS
Outside of leadership courses, campers can explore a variety of subjects taught by top instructors. Campers will get to experience the very best of the Academy’s aviation, aquaculture, and athletics programs and build fun projects at our newly renovated innovation center, full of flight simulators, 3D printers, screen printers, and other exciting maker equipment.
TRIPS AND ACTIVITIES
Summer camp is all about fun. We have an exciting schedule of trips and activities, including visits to local museums, obstacle, ropes, and paintball courses, beach outings, movie nights, a talent show, and other guided activities.
