Palomar Activities

Whether you want to test your aim at the archery range or just hang out and enjoy life at the pool, our Palomar site offers a wide variety of activities to fill your free time! If you are part of one of our Palomar Programs camps, you'll get to experience all of these activities in your time with us! If you are a guest group leader, please speak with your Palomar Retreat Coordinator to reserve these activities for your group.


*Some of our activities do cost money; Adventure, Base, Horse, and Unplugged campers, this is included in your registration. Guest groups, please scroll down for pricing.
