Camp Sequoia (Teen)


Camp Sequoia will remain at this same venue—making it our ninth year at this location. The mountain location provides an environment away from the city and allows for a very private and close camp atmosphere.

Last year we added Lake Day to the activities and will continue that again this year. It was the favorite activity for many. Other activities will include archery, riflery, rock climbing, dance, field and challenge games, and much more. At night campfire will provide the opportunity for camp entertainment, karaoke, skits and more. Bring a light jacket, as nights are cool. Friday night will be our traditional stargazing. And, of course, there’s the banquet and dance at the end of camp.

We are looking for staff members who hold current certifications or have special experience in nursing, lifeguarding, rock climbing, archery and riflery, and boating/waterfront.

We look forward to seeing you at Camp Sequoia in 2019!

Extended Session Details:

This year we will be back to Catalina Island for Extended Session. We have been in the mountains for two years and try to add variety to the challenges. Catalina Island will be a challenging yet rewarding experience. We will be hiking the long end of the island again, but will also enjoy kayaking, fishing, swimming and snorkeling on the last day. If you are an older camper and are up to the challenge, it will be a trip you won’t forget. If you are interested in participating in Extended Session, please contact the camp director as soon as possible. Last year it filled up fast and even had a waiting list. Because of the location and boat transportation, the cost of this years Extended Session will be $275.
