Santa Cruz Island High Adventure

With only a day to recover and repack from summer camp, a group of intrepid Scouts departed for Santa Cruz Island for a week of adventure including kayaking and snorkeling among the kelp. The endangered Santa Cruz Foxes were a constant presence in the campsite. We made a hike across the center of the island to Smuggler’s Cove. We witnessed a rare Pelagic Red Crab mass mortality event as a coastal current carried countless crabs north from their home off the coast of Mexico..
