Sequoia Family Camp – Dates to be Determined

Sequoia Family Camp is a way for the whole family – from babies to grandparents – to go on an affordable summer vacation in a breathtaking setting. Join us as we explore, swim, sing and have fun in the Sequoia National Forest. Using the resident facilities at Camp San Joaquin (between Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, at an elevation of 7,100 feet), the area offers unlimited opportunities for exploration and discovery. Each day, choose to join in a variety of planned events, help in planning or initiating activities, or explore and play on your own. Then come “home” to the warm community atmosphere at camp for relaxation, sharing and fellowship. At Camp San Joaquin, families are housed in tent cabins, which sleep up to 7 persons each, or in dorms sleeping 7-10 persons each. Families will be always housed together; families of 4 or fewer persons may need to share a cabin or dorm.

Previous Family Camps

In 2017, we are limiting our spring programming as we prepare for the grand opening of the new Bergstrom Lodge this fall.  Additionally, the staff is reviewing all of our program options in hopes to reinvigorate those old favorites and possibly introduce new options that embrace the passions and skills of our staff while meeting the needs and interests of our guests.  Stay tuned!
