Camp Emerald Bay relys on partnerships with other non-profits, companies and camps in delivering a high quality camp experience to the youth that come to our shores. The organizations listed below share our mission to effect the lives of young people through Ethical Programming, Environmental Conservation, and Outdoor Education.


The Catalina Island Conservancy was formed in 1972 and is one of California's oldest land trusts. Its mission is to be a responsible steward of its lands through a balance of conservation, education and recreation. The Conservancy protects the magnificent natural and cultural heritage of Santa Catalina Island, stewarding approximately  42,000 acres of land, 62 miles of rugged shoreline and more than 80 miles of trails. It operates the Airport in the Sky, Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden and two nature centers. Twenty miles from the mainland, the Island is home to some 60 rare and endangered animals and plants, some found nowhere else in the world.

Our valued partner Southern California Edison not only lights up the west end of Catalina Island they help Camp Emerald Bay ensure we have one of the best programs on the West Coast. Their support is part of every program in camp from archery to SCUBA, we appreciate Edison International and look forward to a long partnership.

Founded in 1996, the Reef Check Foundation is a California based 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of the world’s reefs. Reef Check’s mission is to empower local communities to protect and rehabilitate reefs worldwide. We do so through grassroots research, conservation, and education. Headquartered in Southern California, Reef Check has built a global network of over 30,000 volunteers that monitor reefs worldwide and is organized into three programs: The Tropical Reefs Program, the Baja California, Mexico Program and the California Program. Reef Check’s grassroots approach to scientific data collection is unprecedented in its worldwide scope and impact, and as a result, Reef Check was just awarded the 2013 Katerva Prize as the world’s top ecosystem conservation organization. Reef Check continues to be one of the most important tools for the protection and conservation of reefs worldwide. 


 Weaver's Coffee & Tea allows us to provide some of the best coffee and tea possible for our adult leaders and groups who frequent our shores. John Weaver has been hand-crafting coffee and tea for more than three decades and apprenticed under two legendary coffee experts, Sal Bonavita and the late Alfred Peet. As master roast for Peet's Coffee, John provided continuity for the company's coffees and leadership of their corp of roasters. It was Alfred Peet's wish that John would one day start his own company, so in late 2007 John left to launch Weaver's Coffee & Tea, where he continues to artistically hand-craft coffee in controlled batches.

Malibu Divers has operated Camp Emerald Bay's SCUBA program for over a decade. They have guided the SCUBA diving program at Camp Emerald Bay from a tiny shack in the middle of Camp to one of the largest Boy Scout SCUBA diving operations in the United States. Malibu Divers offers every level of certification and tours of the exceptional diving in and around Emerald Bay to hundreds of Scouts each summer.



The NRA Foundation is a valued partner of Camp Emerald Bay. The Foundation is the country's leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports, having awarded thousands of grants in support of educational programs since its inception in 1990. The NRA Foundation supports those organizations and programs that ensure the continuation of our proud shooting and hunting heritage.


Camp Josepho is nestled in the Santa Monica just 15 minutes from Sunset Boulevard. It has hosted OA events, summer camps, and youth groups since 1941. Today it offers tech-based summer programs for Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts that focus on Filming, the Arts, and Computer Science. It is also retreat location and campground for local angelenos full of history and easy access.


Our sister camp, Camp Whitsett offers traditional Boy Scout program in the Sequoia National Forest. Their programs have operated continuously since 1947 with an emphasis in mountain activities such as horeback-riding, mountain biking, whitewater rafting and hiiking. Whitsett was featured in the national Geographic TV Show Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout, which relied on its rugged Sierra terrain to challenge participants. Camp Whitsett's high adventure program, Sierra Expeditions, takes older boys on a challenging Sierra trekking experience that will prepare them to run their own trips in the future.
