A little known Labor Day destination is a short boat (or air) trip across the sea.
Camp Fox Labor Day Family Camp has been operated by the Glendale YMCA since 1969. Many a family has traveled the 26-mile ocean channel to step foot on the shores of Camp Fox, Catalina. Parents and children alike have enjoyed the holiday weekend away from the mainland in a private cove, a true island paradise. Year after year they return, building memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
Kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, hiking, archery, ropes course, volleyball, Frisbee golf, climbing wall, and snorkeling fill the day. Camp Fox campers wake up to a sunrise filled with the sounds of ocean waves crashing on the beach just a few feet from their cabin. Away from city lights, the Milky Way is clearly visible in the evenings. No TV is necessary; nightly campfires, songs and skits fill the evening.
For those wanting to get away without going far, room is still available at Camp Fox Labor Day Family Camp from Sept. 4 – Sept. 6. Questions can be directed to Ray Calame, director, at (818) 240-4130 ext. 24 or by emailing
