Los Angeles Maritime Institute’s Tall Ship Adventure Sea Camps are offered on our
twin 110′ brigantines Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson based in San Pedro and on
our 130′ schooner American Pride in Long Beach.
DAY CAMP: EXPLORER CAMP (ages 6-10) designed to encourage growing minds to appreciate and explore nature. After a week of fun at the dock in Rainbow Harbor, explorers sail away for an optional overnight sleepover at sea.
5 DAY: ADVENTURER CAMP & 3 WEEK: VOYAGER CAMP (ages 10-17) campers will explore topics in marine biology, maritime history, island ecology, and traditional maritime arts! Learn the ropes as you challenge yourself with exciting new opportunities: leaving the dock, setting and adjusting sails, keeping a ship on course, and living aboard a ship. New friends, star-gazing, and unforgettable island fun!
Campers will be required to wear a mask and follow the onboard COVID policy throughout the week. Activities are planned with physical distancing in mind.
Youth 6-17, get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
Spend the summer on the beautiful Southern California coast in a way that most people never experience. While at sea and on the island, we will explore topics in marine biology, maritime history, island ecology and have some fun with traditional Maritime arts! These are some of the most memorable summer camps in Southern California!
No sailing experience necessary… we will provide that! Learn the ropes of sailing a large vessel as you challenge yourself with exciting new opportunities: leaving the dock, setting and adjusting sails, keeping a ship on course, setting the anchor, and living aboard a ship for a week or two. Make new friends, eat great food, listen to the sound of the sea, and gaze at the stars at night.
Our camps are offered aboard all of our vessels: the twin 110′ brigantines Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson, and 130′ schooner American Pride. For the Adventure & Voyager Camps, each camper sleeps onboard at night in their own bunk. During the day we do activities on the boat, on the island, and everywhere in between. Camp trips depart from Long Beach and San Pedro, CA, and visit one or more harbors off the coast depending on weather and sea conditions.
