Family Vacation Center

Come Experience the Grown-Up Side of Fun at the Family Vacation Center this Summer!

By Sharis Boghossian '08, UCSB Alumni Association Membership Coordinator

The Family Vacation Center is doing something special for the more mature members of your family this summer. Did you know that each night of your weeklong stay an exciting evening is planned just for the adults? Well, for the first time, we are introducing the new Adult Activity Series to the FVC!


The FVC after dark has much to offer with a different event featured each night. Take a chance and press your luck at Casino Night. Prepare your palates and noses for a delicious wine-tasting excursion in the beautiful wine country just outside of Santa Barbara. Test your sweetheart in the Perfect Match couples’ game show and maybe discover new secrets about them. Showcase your culinary skills in a head-to-head Top Chef competition where you can win ingredients along the way to make tasty margaritas and guacamole (and devour afterward). Enhance your artistic creativity with a digital nature photography workshop and a plein air painting class using the ocean as your inspirational backdrop. Experience a lively Night on the Town in downtown Santa Barbara complete with transportation there and back. Put your knowledge of random facts to test at Pub Trivia Night, and finally, end the week with the best of the best - karaoke night!

With our nightly child care services and kid-friendly activities, there is no need to worry about what to do with the kids while you are away. We will keep your little ones occupied until you return from your summer’s eve escape.

Located on the beautiful UCSB campus, the FVC is famous for its fun family environment and endless entertainment each summer. Surf, sand and sun are just steps away from your coastal lodging, a luxury everyone in the family will love. From the cozy campfires to the beachside bike rides, this all-inclusive camp is the perfect vacation getaway for your family.

During your week at the FVC, you are sure to make friends with our amazing staff and fellow vacationers on top of partaking in traditional and familiar activities. You will leave with not only lifelong connections, but also beach bags full of fond memories. Having a fun summer with your family won’t be hard to do when you vacation with us in Santa Barbara.
