7th Annual Camping Trip

7th Annual RLF Campus Trip

August 4th – 7th

Lake Casitas Recreation Area
11311 Santa Ana Road
Ventura, CA 93001


Hey campers! It’s time for us to hit the road again and head for the GREAT OUTDOORS! Yep, I’m talking about the RLF ANNUAL SUMMER CAMPING TRIP!!!

We got a bit of a late start, but this year we’ll be saying hello to an old friend and planting stakes at Lake Casitas. It was the first campground we invaded when we started this whole thing way back in 2011! laugh

For those who may not remember, Lake Casitas has its own Waterpark (https://www.casitaswater.org/water-adventure/), complete with a multi-level jungle gym with waterfalls, bridges and slides in a lagoon with water up to 18″ deep. It also has a Lazy River, a cool water ride on inner tubes along a scenic waterway featuring waterfalls, fog filled bridges and jet sprays.

The “RLF Official” dates for the trip are Friday through Sunday, August 4 – 6, 2017. But you are more than welcome to reserve spaces for a longer period of time. Some people are going up as early as Monday, July 31st!

We have selected the Deer Campground. Keep in mind that spaces will fill up fast! So you’ll want to reserve your camp site as soon as possible. Camp sites can only accommodate up to 8 people. So please consider this if you’re planning to partner with someone on a camp site reservation.

For planning purposes, here are the full Deer area reservation fees, depending on how long you are planning to stay:

6 Days/5 Nights = $169.00 (Tues – Sun)
5 Days/4 Nights = $139.00 (Wed – Sun)
4 Days/3 Nights = $109.00 (Thu – Sun)
3 Days/2 Nights = $84.00 (Fri – Sun)
To secure your campsite, please register by using this link: http://reservations.casitaswater.org/. If you have any questions, feel free to contact anyone from the Camping Committee: Charmaine Collins, Travis Crudup or Maurice Welch, Sr.

For those who register, we will be sending out additional information on travel directions, what to bring as far as food and camping gear, as well as many of the ongoing camp activities for this year. You do NOT want to be left out!

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you there!
