Welcome to Century Villages at Cabrillo

Adopt-A-Camper Today!

We need your help to provide a summer enrichment program for school age children at the Villages at Cabrillo. Many residents at the Century Villages at Cabrillo have few options for their children once school is out. Traditional summer camps cost about $200 a week, which is out of reach for families who are currently homeless or have limited income.
