Camp Sequoia (Teen)

California



If mountains, pine trees, and cool breezes sound inviting, you will love what Sequoia has to offer. Sitting over 4,500 ft in the mountains at the southern end of the Sequoia National Forrest, is the rustic and secluded Camp Sequoia. Days are warm and nights quickly cool as we enjoy an outdoor campfire. The location of this camp is perfect for outdoor activities. This year our Riflery and Archery program will be greatly improved! For some activities we hike right out of camp and up the mountain for Rock Climbing and Traversing, and one day during the week we head to a nearby lake for “Lake Day”. This includes pontoon boats with slides, kayaks, paddleboard, and a giant lake mat. Sequoia is a very close-knit camp with plenty of time for building close friendships, and we have special traditions like Novelty Olympics, Our Christian Living, Camp fire and Karaoke are outdoors, and our memorable Friday night stargazing. Without the light pollution from the cities below, the stars are a magnificent way to start the Sabbath. Other activities include an arrival and departure dance, as well as a special Banquet on the Sabbath at the end of camp, with a nice meal, speeches, and awards.

Camper Arrival:
Campers should arrive to camp Sunday July 17 before 4:00 p.m. If flying please contact the camp director. If arriving early, or with staff members on Friday, please make arrangements with the camp director for food and lodging. Please add an additional $60 per camper for early arrival. This includes dinner on Friday, meals on the Sabbath and breakfast on Sunday.

Staff Arrival:
Staff should arrive for training on Friday, July 15. Check in between 3-5 p.m. at the camp. This year we are blessed to have staff training at the camp, and will enjoy the Sabbath on site, and will be better prepared for camper arrival on Sunday. Meals and housing will be provided.

Staff members who will be flying, please contact the camp director to arrange transportation and pick up to and from ONT (Thursday only), LAX, BUR or BFL (Bakersfield) airports. Bakersfield is the closest airport (if flights are reasonable)

Travel Information:
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 1:00 p.m. Transportation will be arranged from the Los Angeles airport (LAX) or Burbank (BUR) for pickup. The Bakersfield (BFL) airport is the closest airport, and on occasion will be competitive with rates.


Extended Session Details:

We are excited after several years, 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 24 and head north to Sequoia National Park where we will camp Sunday evening before heading up the mountain for 4 days. You will backpack in all of your supplies, including provided tents and stoves. You 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 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 who are eligible to apply.  If interested, please request information early.
