    Outside Magazine named Shaffer's High Sierra Summer Camp as one of its 5 favorite camps in the U.S., and the Los Angeles Times recommended this camp as one of 14 adventure travel destinations (and only one of two camps)!

     

    Outdoor activities this year include some pretty awesome stuff. Rock climbing near by and ropes course (staffed), kayaking, SUP-ing, swimming, and hiking mountains / sections of the infamous Pacific Crest Trail!

    Hey if you like what this event is all about and have some extra love in your pocket this year read on. There are hundreds of folks who reach out wishing they could make it but can't afford travel.
