About California Summer Programs

California has got to be one of the most well-known places on the planet. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s got everything you need for the summer of a lifetime, including beautiful sunny beaches, vibrant coastal cities to explore, and some of the greatest summer activities for teens to enjoy!

Walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and down Lombard Street - the “crookedest street in the world”- in San Francisco, ride the waves on your surfboard in San Diego, explore the UCLA campus to get a feel for college life, visit Disneyland and Universal Studios, and check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles. Who knows, you may even spot a celebrity or two! There’s so much to see and do here, it’s no wonder California is such a popular teen travel destination. Join us on a summer teen tour or pre-college program on the campus of UCLA and experience all the amazing things the Golden State has to offer!
