Camp Sequoia is a rustic mountain camp with a family environment. The camp sits 4500 feet up in the southern end of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Although the days are pleasantly warm, the nights bring well received cool air and a jacket is even needed for campfire. Campers will enjoy onsite activities like riflery, archery, basketball, volleyball, clincher ball, swimming, teambuilding, Christian Living, campfire, dance, Novelty Olympics and more. You will be going offsite one day for rock-climbing and one day for an all-day lake activity. Each cabin is equipped with showers and restrooms, and there’s a great dining hall and outdoor patio to “hang out”! The food here is great! There are a couple traditions at Camp Sequoia. We enjoy Christian Living outdoors at the Amphitheater, and then each evening’s campfire there as well. We also enjoy our Friday night star gazing on the outdoor basketball court. Because we are on top of a ridge and in the mountains, we have the privacy needed to create a close-knit camp and a place to develop some wonderful friendships that will last for many years to come.
Campers should arrive Sunday, July 19th, before 4 p.m. If arriving early, or with staff members, please make arrangements with the camp director for food and lodging. Please add an additional $50 per camper for early arrival. This includes Friday dinner and Sabbath breakfast.
Staff should arrive for training on Friday July 17th. Check in between 3-5 p.m. at the Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Friday dinner and Sabbath breakfast will be provided. Staff training will be at the Fairfield in Bakersfield for the weekend, before going up to the camp Saturday evening. You will be on your own for lunch and dinner on the Sabbath. There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance.
Staff members who will be flying, please contact the camp director to arrange transportation and pick up to and from ONT, LAX, BUR or BFL (Bakersfield) airports.
If flying, please note that LAX is a 3.5-hour drive to camp. Those flying into LAX should plan to arrive no later than 1 p.m. Transportation will be arranged for Los Angeles airport (LAX) or Burbank (BUR) for pickup. The Bakersfield (BFL) airport is the closest airport, and on occasion will be competitive.
We are excited to once again be going back into the Sierra Nevada Mountains for Extended Session! If you are 16 or older and would like to enjoy a challenging but rewarding adventure, then this trip is for you! We will leave camp on Sunday the 26th and head north to Sequoia National Park where we will stay Sunday evening before heading up the mountain for 3 days. You will pack all of your supplies including tents and stoves, will see some amazing wildlife, and will see some of the most spectacular scenery that Sequoia has to offer. We are heading to Moose Lake once again, which is a magnificent glacier lake that sits over the top of the western Sierras and onto the eastern side. There are very few who ever get to see this spectacular hike, and it is well worth it! We will fish for trout in mountain lakes (eating them for dinner), swim in glacier lakes, and enjoy the stars at night from nearly 10,000 ft. You will learn to work as a team and each day we cover lessons learned from the day’s venture. More information will be available, and sent out to all eligible to apply.
