Adventure Camp

Adventure CampThe Ranch at Laguna Beach designed and created one of Orange County’s most unique and thoughtful locations for daytime activities and primitive overnight camping experiences right here on property. The site, historically a camping and activity site for the Girl Scouts and the YMCA, is now known as Camp Elizabeth Dolph—Scout Camp.

We're proud to make this site available, on a limited basis, to nonprofit groups based here in Southern California that focus on underprivileged youth mentorship and learning as a site for youth overnight camping experiences for up to 40 people. If you would like to inquire to see if your organization qualifies and to learn more, please fill out the information below.
