- About CBS
Campus by the Sea sponsors quality programs for a variety of age groups:
We were founded as the West Coast training center for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, a ministry to college students at universities throughout the United States. Students from schools in Southern California participate in weekend events during the fall months. Week long programs, focusing on intensive bible study, are conducted during spring and early summer.
CBS will not be offering family camps this summer, but will be developing alternative plans for the summer of 2017 and beyond. Please check our website in the coming months to keep updated as new offerings are added to this summer’s schedule. If you belong to a group of InterVarsity Alumni and would like to program a family event, please contact our Guest Service Manager to investigate booking as a Guest Group.
Teenagers will enjoy four multi-night sessions to choose from for fun, excitement and spiritual growth. These sessions are for Jr. High and High School age groups, combined. Combo camps allow student ministry pastors and youth leaders who direct both age groups to come to one program that serves the individualized needs for both age groups. One four-night session in early June and three sessions in mid-August.
We host the Long Beach Marine Institute during the fall and spring. They conduct marine science programs for school age children. The ultimate, sea-side outdoor education experience in Southern California for public and private schools.
Faculty who are Christians on secular college campuses join us for a week each August. A great way for faculty to learn to be more effective witnesses on their campuses.
For all of CBS program and guest group camps, guests are expected to participate in scheduled sessions and activities.
