Both camps have picnic tables and fire pits
Bring: Swim suits, beach towels, wetsuits, footballs, basketballs, volleyballs, Scout Handbook, a little money to waste at the camp store, and firewood! Check the car camping gear list. It will be cold at night so be sure to bring your cold weather clothes.
Carpools: We are limited to 16 Cars. Try to organize your ride: See the trip roster for current drivers.
Extra cars can park outside the camp and walk in
Store Website: www.jalamabeach.com
Wetsuit Rental: There are no wetsuit rentals at camp. Most kids will probably stay out of the water (its cold). If you are interested in a rental, your best bet is to rent online. Triathlon wetsuits work well for swimming and can be rented from a number sites. www.rentals.xterrawetsuits.com seems easy to use.
Directions to Jalama Beach
Exit HWY 1/Lompoc and Vandenberg AFB (PCH) NORTH
Travel approximately 15 miles to Jalama Road.
Take Jalama road Exit, turn left, carefully drive the winding14 mile road to the Jalama Beach Campground. Note: Jalama beach only allows reservations for their group sites. People may be waiting for the individual sites.
We are Camping in Group areas C and D
Campsite notes: It is up to the ranger as to whether or not we will be able to set up camp before the 2:00 PM checkup time, but I think that they will let us check In to campsite D right away because it is unoccupied on Friday night. Camp C is occupied Friday night and we will have to wait until those campers check out before we set up. If C is occupied we will leave the campsite C gear in camp D and set up at 2:00. If they have checked out early, we will set up camp C when we arrive.
