Originally built as a private boarding school in 1929, Toyon Bay boasts an ideal combination of attributes for the educational camp experience. The campus incorporates comfortable dormitory accommodations; fantastic indoor and outdoor dining facilities; modern, state-of-the-art laboratories, aquariums, classrooms and display areas with the untouched natural beauty of Catalina Island's land and sea environments.


Our 3-day field trips offer many activities; marine labs, shark. ray, and invertebrate touch tanks, plus algae, plankton, fish, and terrestrial labs among others.

Our evening programs include night snorkeling, astronomy hike, and squid dissection, to name just a few.

By focusing on hands-on experiential science, and utilizing our state of the art labs and equipment, we strive to increase science literacy.  Our expert instructors use the natural land and sea environments of beautiful Catalina Island to stimulate minds, and most importantly, to create excitement about science.

This is intended for students who are taking a science lab course in the 2021/2022 school year.  If your student is not in a science class this year and would still like to go, then they can still sign up and will be notified if there are spots available.
**If you are planning to pay out of pocket, do not purchase a ticket unless you have confirmation that your student has been approved to attend.** 
**All students who attend will need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR Test taken within 72 hours of arrival at camp or proof of vaccination.  Please see our Field Trip COVID Safety FAQs and Catalina Island Marine Institute's COVID Safety Guidelines for more safety information.
