The campground at Malibu Creek State Park has excellent facilities and a superb location. Students and faculty stay in tents supplied by NAL and use central bathrooms. We set a central outdoor dining area for breakfast and dinner; students assist with preparing and serving food buffet-style. Lunches are eaten “on the trail” as the groups explore the mountains. Campfire areas are available for evening use. In case of inclement weather tarp shelters are available. The location in the center of the Park offers many opportunities for exploring the diverse environments of the Santa Monica Mountains and adjacent areas.
Each trail group is with a Naturalist and a faculty or parent chaperon for the entire program.
Educational Themes include:
Leadership development and decision-making is enhanced through group building and initiative activities.
