"I never imagined how wonderful CIMI (Catalina Sea Camp) would be in how it's shaped and matured Julia in her development, making life-long impressions on her and giving her opportunities to do things she'd never have been able to do." -Julia Paige’s Mom (17 year old)
"Sam looked so alive when he got off the boat to come home. He was radiating excitement, happiness, and achievement. It was a wonderful experience for him." -Sam Ross’s Mom (11 year old)
"Somehow, every single year the camp exceeds my expectations. I have very high expectations because I know it is an excellent camp; but every year amazes me with the new things he has learned." -Bryce Pantoja’s Mom (age 15)
