Eighth grade retreat moves to Santa Barbara

Most eighth graders will spend four nights and three days together at El Capitan Canyon campground for this year’s retreat, replacing the previous site at Pali Mountain Camp.

El Capitan Canyon campground is 20 miles north of Santa Barbara and part of El Capitan State Beach Park. Approximately 160 eighth graders will retreat at the campground during Oct. 13-16, while the rest of the class of 2011 will camp at Joshua Tree near Indio.
