It's a New Day

FBCR All Church Family Retreat at Campus by the Sea, Catalina Island

June 10 - 12, 2023

The Trip

Campus by the Sea

Campus by the Sea (CBS) is a non-profit camp located on Catalina Island, three miles west of the town of Avalon. Its secluded beach is nestled between two mountain ridges. The only access to camp is by boat or hiking, as there is no road into camp. CBS provides a setting for retreats that is free from many of the mainland distractions. It is a place to appreciate nature and enjoy a simple lifestyle. While at CBS, we will enjoy opportunities to connect, recreate, study, play and eat together. Meals will be provided from Saturday lunch through Monday breakfast plus a sack lunch. Sleeping will be in enclosed cabins, open air cabins or tent cabins.

Activities Include

Gathering times for worship, learning, fellowship and fun. Outdoor fun such as hiking, star gazing night hike, snorkeling, kayaking, beachfront activities, basketball, volleyball, ping pong, and a children’s playground area. Singing and sharing around a campfire and a “talent” show (TALENT NOT REQUIRED).
