Tumbleweed Day Camp, like most everything in Los Angeles County, is on the ancestral land of the Gabrielino-Tongva Indian Tribe. Tovaangar, also know as modern day Los Angeles, was home to thousands of people who inhabited this area of the word for hundreds of years prior to European Colonization. We acknowledge that the beautiful land that we are on and enjoy every day was stolen from the Gabrielino-Tongva not so long ago.


We encourage all our campers, families, neighbors, and staff to learn more about the Gabrielino-Tongva and Chumash Tribes.
