Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Camp Whittier is a nonsectarian camp operated year-round 7 days a week by United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County and is available to: Boys & Girls Clubs, youth groups, school retreats and conferences, organizational conferences and meetings, church groups, high school and college groups, family reunions and corporate groups.
Nestled among the hills of the Los Padres National Forest, the private, tucked-away 55 acre resident camp is bounded by hiking trails and hosts an abundance of wildlife in an oak woodland area. Cachuma Lake and its amenities are within easy walking distance.
The camp was named after Donald Whittier, who was a former Chairman of the Board of the United Boys & Girls Clubs and a great friend and devoted supporter of youth.
