CIMI is a hands-on outdoor discovery program located in Toyon Bay, Catalina Island.

5th graders will leave on Wednesday, October 4th and return on Friday, October 6th, 2017.


Departure and Return

Wednesday: Students and staff will meet at La Canada Preparatory School at 6:45 a.m. The bus provided by Southwinds Tranportation will leave promptly at 7:00 a.m., so it is very important that students arrive at the school early. Students and staff will be transported to Long Beach where a boat will be waiting to take them to Catalina. Check-in time for the boat is 8:30a.m. Everyone must bring a sack lunch and drinks.

Friday: The boat will arrive back in Long Beach between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. The bus is slated to arrive at La Canada Preparatory School between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m., depending on rush-hour trafic. You may call the LCP office to find out the updated time of arrival.



Please see attached brochure that explains the program in detail.



Pack light. Keep two things in mind as you prepare: students need to carry their luggage a considerable distance from the boat to the cabins, and we are only going for two nights. Please ensure that warm sleeping bags are in a casing, nylon bag, or some other type of covering that prevents unrolling. Students must have their name on all personal belongings and luggage.
