Can you remember the last time you sat by a campfire with friends underneath millions of glowing orbs in the sky? At Camp Ocean Pines, those aren’t airplanes—the infinite scattering of lights in the sky are stars, lighting your child’s night without need for LEDs. Just because you live in the city doesn’t mean nature has to be a page in a book; at Camp Ocean Pines, nature, wildlife, overnight trips and arts and crafts come together to make your child’s summer a memorable one.
Researching camps can be difficult: there are camps for every season and specialty, creed and sport, habit and obsession, but at the end of it all, you just want a camp that will open your child’s eyes to the world devoid of smartphones and tablets and WiFi and iTunes. If you’re looking for a co-ed summer camp to expand your child’s horizons, teach your young one new skills, and ultimately introduce your adolescent to a world of physicality, adventure, simplicity and fun, Camp Ocean Pines is the camp for you.
Summer camp is one of the most memorable experiences a child will ever have. By enrolling your children at Camp Ocean Pines, you give them the opportunity to exist in a world at the whims of their imagination. There’s nowhere else where your child can go on overnight trips, learn bird handling, survival skills, and glass melting. Every parent will eventually face the day when you send your child out into the world and hope their experiences lead them down the right path—Camp Ocean Pines can be a positive step in that journey. Our location in Cambria, California, offers an environment removed from the pollution and noise of the city, while also situated in the woods, minutes away from the beach. Here they can learn how to take care of themselves by building shelter, minimalize their eco-footprint, and build a campfire. Our leadership staff is invested in ensuring your children have the time of their lives while making friends, arts and crafts, exploring on hikes, whale watching, and so much more.
There are activities to match every personality at Camp Ocean Pines, whether your youngster is a leader, artist, adventurer or observer. We provide the opportunity for campers to step out of the regimented world of hard drives and keyboards, textbooks and pencil sharpeners, and become the child they may not have the opportunity to be elsewhere. We take our impact on your children’s lives seriously. Positive support and encouragement are important tools to ensuring children make the most of their opportunities. Camp Ocean Pines is accredited by the American Camp Association, so you know you’re sending your children to a camp where they will receive attention from highly trained counselors.

Counselor in Training Program
Imagine sending your teenager away for the summer to a place where they can learn what it takes to have a job that influences the happiness of others. They’ll return with a greater sense of responsibility and the feeling that they have made a difference in a setting that they enjoy. And on top of it all, they had fun. Welcome to the CIT program at Camp Ocean Pines. The CIT program at Camp Ocean Pines is for previous campers or CITs who are finishing 9th or 10th grade prior to the start of summer. In our CIT program, campers will learn the importance of hard work, responsibility and leadership. We will teach your campers what goes in to running a camp, and at the end of their experience they even receive a work evaluation so they know which aspects of their leadership made the most impact.
