Mountains, pine trees, majestic views, sunshine, and cool breezes describe what Sequoia has to offer campers and staff in 2023. Sitting over 4500 ft in the mountains at the southern end of the Sequoia National Forrest, is a rustic and secluded Camp that provides the opportunity to be away from society. Days are warm and nights quickly cool as we enjoy our evening outdoor campfire. The location of this camp is perfect for outdoor activities. Riflery and Archery are always a favorite challenge! We have climbing towers available to us as a new camp addition. One day during the week the entire camp heads to a nearby lake for “Lake Day”. This includes pontoon boats with slides, kayaks, paddleboard, and a giant lake mat. Camp Sequoia is a very close-knit camp with plenty of time for building friendships We have special traditions like Novelty Olympics, Our outdoor Christian Living, nightly Camp fire and Karaoke are outdoors, and our memorable Friday night stargazing. The stars are a magnificent way to start the Sabbath. Activities include the above, plus Clincher Ball, Field Games, Swimming, teambuilding, Volleyball and Basketball. We also have 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.
Campers should arrive to camp Sunday July 16th before 4:00 pm. If flying please contact the camp director if booking outside the time frame. If arriving early, or with staff members on Friday, please make arrangements with the camp director. Please add an additional $60 per camper for early arrival. This includes meals and housing.
Staff should arrive for training on Friday July 14th. Check in between 1-5 pm at the camp. This year we are once again 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.
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 have competitive rates.
Extended Session is an amazing opportunity and challenge! 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 23rd and head into the Sierra mountains where we will camp Sunday evening. For 3-4 days you will backpack with all of your supplies, including meals, water, tents and stoves which are provided. You will see some amazing wildlife, and will see some of the most spectacular scenery that the Sierras have to offer. We often fish for in mountain lakes or streams– (enjoying them for dinner), swim in glacier lakes, and often enjoy the stars at night from nearly 10,000 ft. You will learn to work as a team, and each day we cover valuable lessons learned from the day’s venture and how that relates to the theme of camp and to your life. More information will be coming soon, and will be sent out to all who are eligible to apply. If interested, please request information from the camp director early, as it fills up fast.
