Chatsworth Hills Academy’s CAMP MOMONGA is a truly unique and special experience. Where else can campers explore their natural surroundings and the local history of the region without having to step outside the 16-acre camp grounds? Campers at CHA’s Camp Momonga learn about and feel the inclusive strength of being a part of the Tribes program. This program teaches campers how to respect each other, include everyone, and work effectively together. Certified teachers and qualified instructors, assisted by outstanding young people, guide the campers through the program.

Chatsworth Hills Academy sits on a highly significant location in the San Fernando Valley of California. Inhabited by the Tongva-Fernandeño, Chumash-Venturaño, and Tataviam-Fernandeño tribes, the village of Momonga was once a summer solstice retreat and sacred ceremony location. The village contained a sulfur stream that ran year round and was believed to have had amazing medicinal benefits. There are numerous rock outcrops around the campus with caves that feature decorative rock art. College archaeology students regularly come to explore the site as a part of their courses.
The history of Momonga is one that brings the tribes of the indigenous people together. Today, Chatsworth Hills Academy’s Camp Momonga continues this tradition by bringing the young people of the world together through its International Baccalaureate Programme and Summer Camp.
I earned a B.A. in Business Management with a minor in Accounting in 1993 from Boston College. I received the Basic Core Certificate for Early Childhood Education in 2007 and completed the additional course work required for Early Childhood Education Administration in 2009 from the University of California, Los Angeles. Both these certifications reflect a program of specialized preparation for working with young children and their families. In 2004 my childhood dream and strong desire to becoming a teacher motivated me to open my own Family Home Childcare Center. I did this passionately for 2 ½ years before joining CHA in September of 2005. When you visit our program you will not only see and feel my passion for early childhood education but you will find a program that focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and outside the classroom. Our program gives children a framework they can use throughout school; they learn to love learning.
