We had the BEST time, and we all agree that it [family camp] was by far our favorite family trip of all time. My son didn’t cry leaving Disneyland, but he cried leaving family camp!

Do you have fond memories of summer camp as a child or did your kids come home from Sierra Nevada Journeys Summer Camp with stories of campfires and fun? Then, Family Camp is your opportunity to reconnect and spend time enjoying the outdoors with your friends and family while engaging in fun activities and enjoying delicious meals prepared by our chefs.

Grizzly Creek Ranch and its magnificent vistas, valleys and meadows are the perfect setting for you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and be a kid again!

Activities planned throughout the weekend include: swimming, kayaking, nature walks, archery, racing down the zip line, climbing the Alpine Tower, huddling around the campfire singing songs and telling stories, performing skits and more. You and your family choose what you wish to participate in or just enjoy the scenic surroundings at your leisure

To see the campus in more detail, take a virtual tour of Grizzly Creek Ranch.
