    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!
