Memories Are Made Here,All Year Round!

Keep the Magic Going with a Family Getaway!

Make every break that comes with each season special by giving your family the gift of a holiday at Bruin Woods. Imagine spending the long Thanksgiving weekend lounging by a crackling fire, without having to lift a finger in the kitchen. Enjoy a winter wonderland as you ring in the New Year together as a family in the crisp mountain air. Or come back in the spring to experience a real break from it all in a family-focused setting.

The same unforgettable experiences you love in the summer are waiting here for you during our five exclusive mini-vacations we call Bruin Woods Family Holidays. You’ll enjoy the familiar accommodations and your favorite foods; outdoor group activities and fun for the kids; and special lectures, team trivia events and more for mom and dad. Our same rigorous search process goes into finding talented UCLA students to serve as counselors.

Your Holiday Stay Includes...

  • Cozy accommodations in our charming two-story condolets.
  • Gourmet meals prepared by our chef, served in our Main Lodge dining room.
  • Lots of scheduled activities for the kids, led by UCLA student counselors – including outdoor adventures and fun.
  • Fun for the adults, too – including special UCLA guest lecturers and the famous Bruin Chef competition with our head chef.

Fall, winter, or spring… if you love coming here in the summer, we are sure you’ll have a blast during Bruin Woods Family Holidays.
