About Us Image

The only reason Cuyamaca Retreat Centers exists is to support education.

Who are we? Why are we doing what we do?

We are not a business. We do this to support education. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to connect with nature. We are the San Diego County Office of Education. We run Outdoor Education, mobile science outreach, and 6th grade camp for all of San Diego County. In an effort to keep costs down for students, we subsidize 6th grade camp for every student who attends.

Sixth grade camp in San Diego has been in operation since 1946. It has been a rite of passage for over a million of San Diego's children. The present state of the economy has jeopardized this experience for future generations. Know that a portion of your dollar goes to support outdoor education. We hope one day to offer scholarships to any student who may not be able to afford a camp experience otherwise. Our call to action to you is to donate, or at least to host your next event with Cuyamaca Retreat Centers. Thank you.
