Where California Dreamin' becomes a way of life
Spanning 450 acres in the rolling hills of Ojai Valley, Camp Ramah California's landscaped grounds and magnificent views paint the backdrop for our all-inclusive getaway just 1.5 hours from Los Angeles. Between the orange grove and painted sky sunsets, It's the picture-perfect setting to relax by the pool, lay out on the fields, scale the 50' alpine tower, greet the sun with treetop yoga, and enjoy homemade guacamole... all before noon. Toss in our menu of outrageously creative programs and you’ll spend a blissful weekend connecting with new friends while disconnecting from the real world. This experience is yours to make what you want of it.

What Trybal SoCal campers say
"Trybal Gatherings exceeded my expectations, I had so much fun and the thing I've told everyone about my experience is that I felt authentically myself. I felt the freedom, whimsy and childlike wonder and nostalgia of summer camp while still having the freedom of being an adult. Thank you Trybal team for an unforgettable experience that truly brought so much joy and happiness."
