Summer Family Camp 2023

Dear Bruin Woods Families,

We are excited to provide an update and share registration information about Bruin Woods 2023 — which promises to offer another summer of adventure, connection, growth, and memory making for both children and parents.

This year, Bruin Woods will welcome a new partner, UCLA Student Affairs, to administer our camp programming at Lake Arrowhead. Student Affairs is the campus division that supports the success and development of all of UCLA’s students, and the division’s Recreation department has been offering summer camps within Los Angeles for more than thirty years. Beginning this summer, Student Affairs will take up the management of Bruin Woods activities including the hiring, training, and supervision of student employees as well as oversight of youth and adult programs. The Lake Arrowhead Lodge is excited to welcome Student Affairs as a partner in the provision of our services.

While there will be some changes to usual operations as we make this transition, we look forward to working to provide a best-in-class family camp experience for our alumni families that fosters a positive environment and upholds UCLA’s principles and values.

Priority reservations for Bruin Woods 2023 have been sent to returning families and the New Family Application is now open.
