Beach Days (1st Grade & Up)

If you’re looking to spend some time in the sun, join us for our beach field trips! Saddleback Branch members will be shuttled over to our Bluebird Branch in Laguna Beach. Before heading down to Bluebird St. beach in Laguna, members will eat lunch at Bluebird Park. After lunch, staff and members will leave the Club around 12:30 and make their way down the street to the beach. Before getting in the water, members always talk to the lifeguard, so they understand the rules of the beach and surf conditions. Less confident swimmers can always opt to stay on the sand or shoreline. Members will leave the beach around 3:30 to make it back to the Club by 4:00. Members will arrive back at El Toro Park afterhours at 5pm! In the interest of time, we ask that members come with sunscreen already applied. We hope you’ll join us!


Pool Days (1st Grade & Up)

Saddleback Branch members will be shuttled to our Canyon Branch. They will head to the Laguna Beach Community Pool for some fun in the sun. Please remember to pack your child with a lunch as they will eat at the Club before departing. 


Theme Days

Dress up for the theme day and participate in the costume contest for a chance to win the grand prize!


Free Snack

We will be providing a snack daily at 10:00 am & 2:00 pm.
