Attending YESS

Weekend Activities

Field Trips

The Caltech campus is located in beautiful Southern California close to Los Angeles. YESS participants will experience the activities, events, and cultural phenomena of Pasadena and Los Angeles.

Weekend field trips may include a day at Venice Beach, dinner at Universal CityWalk Hollywood and exploring Old Town Pasadena. Participants also attend the Fourth of July Celebration at the Rose Bowl.


Students are encouraged to use the athletic facilities on weekends. Many YESS participants go for a swim or play a team sport.
