The Perfect Setting for Your Camp, Conference or Tournament.

Every summer, Tropicana’s student communities are transformed into ideal venues for over 90 camps, tournaments and conferences – including Nike Tennis Camps, Vogelsinger Soccer Camp, and Brady Tennis Camps. They choose Tropicana because our unique combination of convenience, location and experience ensures a great experience for everyone involved.

The UCSB campus and athletic facilities are across the street. The ocean is just a few blocks away. Our suite-style accommodations are cheerful and comfortable. An on-site café serves delicious, wholesome meals and snacks. And our experienced and professional staff is always eager to help.

Our Guests Say it Best.

  • “Tropicana’s location adjacent to the athletic and recreation facilities at UCSB is unequaled by all other housing here. But in addition to that the professional staff really takes care of us while we’re there. Just about every need is met and so are most wishes.”

    -Paul Ramsey, UCSB Women’s Lacrosse
  • “The facility is well staffed and secure. We always feel very comfortable having our campers staying there. When you look at the local options Tropicana stands out always as a great value with excellent meals and rooms.”

    -Wolf Wigo, Santa Barbara Water Polo Camps
  • “Our staff and kids love Tropicana for many reasons…It has a pool, a fun game room and many of the rooms have TV’s. It’s always clean and inviting and it seems like they’re always upgrading something, whether it’s the rooms, cafeteria or something else. We really like the layout of the dorm that is conducive to socializing. The area feels safe and the dorms are always locked at night.”

    -Kevin Brady, Brady Tennis Camps
