California Lutheran University
6 Points Sci-Tech Academy West operates on the campus of California Lutheran University. The 225-acre campus is located midway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, just 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean nestled against the hills in Thousand Oaks. Cal Lutheran’s ideal location, and superb facilities make it the perfect place to operate a science and technology summer camp for children. Our dorm, dining hall and classrooms are all within a few minutes’ walk from one another, creating an environment that is both safe and accessible for children of all ages.
Facilities at Cal Lutheran include:
- Modern dorms with quad-suites—two double rooms connected by a shared bathroom
- Large, central dorm lounge
- LEED certified dining hall
- Indoor programming spaces for services, song sessions, and other activities
- Pool and outdoor playing fields, basketball court, beach volleyball court
The campus is located about an hour from Los Angeles Airport (LAX).
Campers are housed in single-gendered halls in our dormitory. Within the hall, campers are clustered into groups based on age and their counselors are interspersed in rooms between their campers’ suites. These age clusters become the groups with which the campers will interact for most of the session (similar to a bunk or cabin at traditional camp). Counselors are in residence to supervise, mentor and engage their campers throughout the day, both when in the dorm and when at activities.
All campers are assigned to rooms of two and campers can request a roommate. We do our best to honor roommate request and make the best roommate pairings possible.
Campers clean their personal living space, with the help of their counselors, each day. Professional cleaning crews will clean public areas (such as bathrooms and hallways) on a regular basis throughout the week. Laundry service is provided once in the middle of each session and again during inter-sessions for campers staying multiple sessions.
