The “Pali” in Pali Adventures comes from the nickname for Pacific Palisades, a suburb located near Los Angeles, California. It’s where the camp was founded by entrepreneur, Andy Wexler.
The very first “Pali Camp” was a summer day camp run by Andy and his team in 1990. His goal was to provide a safe environment for kids to try incredible new things. The camp was very successful and continued to grow over the next decade. In 1999, Andy purchased a 74-acre site in the mountains that was previously known as Camp O-Ongo. The stunning mountain location became known as Pali Mountain and evolved into the beautiful facility our campers are now lucky to enjoy.
