UCLA’s Premier Family Resort at Lake Arrowhead

At Bruin Woods…

Children spend their days with UCLA’s finest student counselors, chosen from a competitive pool of applicants for their genuine love of children, desire to be exemplary role models and professional skill sets. Bruin Woods kids laugh, learn, participate in a host of activities including sports and games, and then spend the other 51 weeks of the year looking forward to the time when they can return to renew old friendships and meet their student counselors.

Parents recharge in an oasis of tranquility or participate in ever-expanding active possibilities. They relax and have the time of their lives on our exclusive 40-acre property, confident that their children are safe. Lifelong connections are forged with 80 fellow UCLA Bruin families. More than 100 friendly resort staff are dedicated to enhance the experience by providing personalized service and attention to the smallest details.

Families reside in charming, wooded condolets and feast on three incredible chef-prepared meals daily. Parents and children sculpt experiences and adventures in ways that please every member of the family. The Bruin Woods Family Resort at Lake Arrowhead truly offers the best in family fun and entertainment. We look forward to meeting you and your family. Welcome to ours!
