Outdoor activities

Enjoy a variety of both active and leisurely outdoor activities against the scenic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada. Relax with a good book on a lakeside lounge chair, take a guided hike into Desolation Wilderness, sail across Fallen Leaf Lake, or join in on sports like tennis, volleyball or basketball.

Kid-friendly and family activities

Enthusiastic counselors lead creative, educational and fun-filled programs for ages five through 12. Activities include indoor and outdoor games, adventurous nature hikes and family programs that allow you to enjoy time with your children.

Special activities

Learn about the stars on an Astro-Cruise, get your glitter on at Disco Bingo, mingle with fellow faculty and staff members at Sunset Social Hour, and come together for Campfire on the Waterfront, where all of Camp gathers ’round the crackling fire to sing tunes and roast marshmallows.
