YEA Camp – California
August 6-13, 2017
After 8 wonderful years in northern California, we are excited to have outgrown our previous venues and to be moving to the larger and equally beautiful Camp Wrightwood in the Angeles National Forest.
This beautiful location is roughly 60 miles from Pasadena and 90 miles from LAX -- and camp starts and ends on the weekend, when there will be no traffic! The camp is a roughly 6 hour drive from the Bay Area (San Francisco, East Bay, Sacramento), and we hope to continue to have many campers from throughout California and around the country to attend our only west coast session.
Our California camp is the one session of YEA Camp where swimming will be offered (as an optional activity).
Our California session of YEA Camp is focused on building knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to make a big difference on a cause of the camper's choice -- all while having an amazing time, making great friends, and discovering that we are more incredible than we ever realized.
We can't wait to meet you there!
This venue has a classic camp feel, in the woods and staying in cabins, but minus the scorching heat most other areas experience during the summer. Campers and staff stay in rooms off of the main lodge, with 3-4 bunk beds and indoor bathrooms right next door. And don’t worry, we are at camp but we are not that rustic. We have electricity, hot water, and all the basics.
Despite all this talk about where we’re sleeping, we don’t spend much time in our rooms -- there’s so much to do! -- but camp wouldn’t be camp without late-night whispering about our hopes, our dreams, or the most ridiculous, embarrassing, or random stories we can think of. Not too late, though! Lights are out at 11.
We ask campers to arrive on August 6 between 11-1. Everyone is invited for lunch at noon!
On the last day of camp, August 13, we ask parents to arrive at 11 and to stay for our special completion and graduation, which will end no later than 1.
DOES YEA CAMP SOUND PERFECT FOR YOU?
