TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway. Overnight

CAMPER GENDER(S): Coed Campers.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Dance, Theater, Fine Arts/Crafts, Horses/Equestrian, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Team Sports, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Backpacking/Outdoor Living Skills, Leadership

CAMP LOCATION: The camp is located in California's splendid Tahoe National Forest, 1-1/4 hours north of Lake Tahoe, on the peaceful headwaters of the North Yuba River and adjacent to the Lakes Basin Recreation Area with dozens of pristine mountain lakes and miles and miles of hiking, biking, and horseback trails. Please visit This Website Link or call us at (866) 597-6617 for more information.

CAMP FACILITIES: The facility is rustic, in keeping with its wilderness adventure program. Participants sleep in cabins and large traditional tipis. There is a bathhouse with private showers and flush toilets. In addition, there is an administrative building with the camp's office and health center, recreation hall, dining hall, bike shop, arts & crafts hut, pool, volleyball court, archery range, challenge ropes course, horseshoe pit, disc golf course, and a camp fire area including a stage.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The camp's focus is on helping children 8 to 17 take another step toward becoming happy, healthy, well-adjusted adults.

We promote positive youth development through a program that includes many of the summer camp classics, such as arts & crafts, archery, camp fire, dance, drama, games, swimming, etc., plus exhilarating wilderness adventure activities, such as rock climbing, mountain biking, mountain boarding, horseback trail rides, hikes, backpacking, etc.

We also offer three specialized program tracks in which kids who love rock climbing, mountain biking or outdoor living skills (backpacking) can really focus on those activities.

In fact, our program has so many fun activities kids can't do them all in a single week! After a day of team building fun and games designed so kids get to meet and know others, kids sign up for activities every other day. They are not locked into a block schedule. Rather, they can sign up for the activities they really enjoy, or to be with friends. After all, when people think of camp, they think of fun and friends.

And our camp is so confident that your child will have fun, it offers a money-back guarantee. If your child doesn't have fun, we'll refund your money. No questions asked. (See the web site for details.) We don't know of another camp that backs its program with such a promise.

But fun isn't even the best part of camp. While kids come to camp the first time for all the great activities, they return for the magic. They simply feel exhilarated and nourished from their experience. This springs from our focus on youth development, with activities designed to help kids:

* build self-esteem and self-worth by contributing to their community,

* develop self-confidence by trying new activities in a criticism-free zone and acquiring new or improved skills such as in rock climbing, dance, paddle boarding, drama, or mountain biking,

* increase independence by successfully living away from home and making decisions for themselves such as what activities to pursue and even designing their own activity period,

* gain in understanding of others who come from different regions of the world (children and staff have come from virtually every continent on earth, including Antarctica where one of our staff member help build the research station),

* nurture an enduring sense of adventure, unafraid to try new things, springing from all the opportunities at camp, the encouragement and the lack of criticism by both peers and adults, and

* enhance an appreciation of nature by unplugging from electronics and living in a beautiful living, breathing forest.

When you mix all these positive developmental attributes with fun and friends in a beautiful mountain setting, you get all the ingredients for magic.

We think this contributed to Outside Magazine naming Shaffer's High Sierra Camp as one of its five favorite camps in the entire country. And with a money-back guarantee, you can't go wrong.

Don't settle for just a fun time when your child can have a life-changing experience. It's one of the best gifts you can give your child.

Watch our video (This Website Link) and then give us a call. We'd love to talk to you!

P.S. With room for just 70 campers at any one time, sessions fill. Don't be left out. Call today!

CAMP FACILITIES: Kathleen Elliott's equestrian program combines qualified staff, experienced horses, and excellent facilities to create an atmosphere where campers can refine their horseback riding skills, expand their horsemanship knowledge, and enjoy riding with friends. Kathleen's summer & holiday vacation horse camps aim to teach children (ages 6-16) about the wonderful world of horses. Through horse-related games and activities, campers learn about the care of horses, their characteristics, breeds, colors, and safe handling--both on the ground and while mounted--in a fun-filled environment. Children are supervised by trained staff and counselors and learn horsemanship skills from horses suitable for the young rider. Kids Horse Camp is designed for all levels of riders--from a child's first experience with a horse to an experienced youth rider who shows hunter-jumpers or dressage.

Kathleen's camp is both an educational and recreational experience focusing on HORSES. We offer a variety of camp activities, which include playing HORSE games, grooming HORSES, riding HORSES, feeding HORSES, learning about horse health and nutrition, HORSE crafts, bathing HORSES, watching HORSES, oh and of course, more RIDING HORSES!

Our friendly and supportive atmosphere helps every camper feel important. We strive to make each camper feel special so campers develop confidence in their personal horsemanship and riding abilities. Our camp motto, “Anything is Possible at Kathleen Elliot’s”, translates into a positive enabling environment where kids know that anything is possible!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Learn from a certified ARIA equestrian trainer and respected California show judge. We enjoy tailoring the horse camp experience to each camper and offer a fun filled summer learning adventure with horses and good friends.

There is a strong focus on camper participation, safety and leadership. As campers become comfortable with daily routines, they are encouraged to contribute and given opportunities to assume more leadership responsibilities. Those interested in expanding their horsemanship have opportunities to assist riders and learn about teaching skills.

Kathleen Elliott teaches skills and promotes confidence in horse care, safety practices, proper equitation and the joy of the relationship between horse and rider. Because our camp is a non-competitive, skills-oriented camp, we pride ourselves on giving our riders sound, safe information and practice with horse care and riding.

Our Summer HORSE PROGRAM is a fantastic way for children to learn about horses and riding as well as develop more proficient and nuanced riding skills. We have lots of fun riding and caring for some very sweet horses. We offer lessons in Western, English or bareback, which start at beginning levels but provide an opportunity for kids to advance based on their ability and experience. Each child is evaluated on his/her riding ability and placed in a group comprised of those with corresponding ages and skills. For kids who like horses, nothing can create memories of a lifetime like attending a quality Horse Summer Camp. We invite your child to enjoy all the fun a quality horse summer camp has to offer while improving their riding skills and their knowledge of horses at the same time. Summers spent at a riding camp can create friendships and experiences that your child will cherish for years to come. This Season's Summer Camp will have exciting demonstration's, horse related games, crafts and more. We also will educate your children on the knowledge and hard work it takes to properly care for their equine buddy.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Skyhawks Sports Camps are SAFETY FOCUSED!

At Skyhawks we go the extra mile to focus on safety, and we have a long-standing proven safety track record and processes to prove it. For example, all Skyhawks Sports camps start and end with our unique safety process called �Gate System and Parking Lot Duty.� This process is where coaches come and greet both parents and campers in the parking lot when parents pull up to drop off their children.

Our staff guide the kids onto the field/court and out of harm�s way by funneling them into our gate system. Eye contact is maintained from each one of our staff members until the kids make it onto the field/court where they are grouped by age. This efficient process ensures safety. Additionally, it develops a level of trust between parent, coach, and child that ultimately leads to a fun and skill-focused camp for youth.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Skyhawks Sports Camps are offered throughout the summer, and specific dates and times vary from location to location.

Fees vary depending on age, duration of camp, and location.

You can find a complete list of sessions, times, and fees for ALL the Skyhawks Sports Camps in your area at: This Website Link.

TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway.

CAMPER GENDER(S): Coed Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Our outdoor summer camps are our specialty. We offer a 5-day program for younger participants ages 11-13, and a choice of a
6-day or 11-day program for youth ages 13-17. Our goals include providing unforgettable experiences that intimately connects each youth with nature, themselves, and the greater world around them in Yosemite National Park!

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Lasting Adventures, Inc. strives to give outdoor experiences to ALL youth. If a child is physically capable of participating in our Yosemite backpacking adventures, then we are able to accommodate most special needs.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Swimming, Science, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Adventure Based Programming. We Participate In Fun, Challenging, & Significant Events & Games, Providing Support Throughout.

CAMP LOCATION: We operate throughout the Yosemite backcountry. All youth trips meet in Tuolumne meadows which is approx. a 3.5-4 hour drive from the San Francisco Bay area. All trips end in Yosemite Valley proper.

CAMP FACILITIES: We teach respect for yourself, others, and the environment through a Yosemite backpacking adventure. Participants camp and sleep under the stars or in tents. We move locations and hike daily. We learn about nature and challenge ourselves to become better contributors in this world!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our outdoor summer camps, also known as the Yosemite High Country Adventure youth backpacking trips, are our specialty. Our weekly programs are six days/ five nights in length and average between 25-35 backpacking miles. These trips usually begin in the Yosemite High Country and conclude in Yosemite Valley proper. On all trips we conduct some side hikes (without backpacks) to famous sites and peaks (such as Half Dome, Clouds Rest, El Capitan, Mount Hoffman, and Red Peak).

These day trips average another 6 to 10 miles. Every other week we offer a different trail. So if you would like to choose a two-week adventure (13 days/ 12 nights) by combining two sessions; your child will be guaranteed to see different terrain each week. Additionally, by choosing the two-week option, your child will have a layover day in either Tuolumne Meadows or Yosemite Valley proper where the participants will partake in more sightseeing opportunities. During this layover day, participants will also have a chance to re-supply, wash-up, and eat some fresh food at a local eatery.

Throughout the adventure, participants will be guided along some of the most famous trails and to the top of some of the most famous passes and peaks within Yosemite National Park. Our experienced leaders have an extensive knowledge of the Yosemite backcountry. In addition to taking our participants to many of the famous locations, our leaders will also guide participants to lesser known areas that we have found over the years such as off-the-trail high alpine lakes (where fish are plentiful), backcountry waterfalls, alpine meadows, spectacular vistas, watering holes, cliff jumping areas, and natural waterslides.

On most trips, we backpack every day but one (a lay over day and location is usually agreed upon by the team) and we are on the trail for an average of 4-5 hours. Most of our trips go from a higher elevation to a lower elevation and throughout the experience we take our time, take in the views, and break at awesome watering holes. Yet, viewing the Yosemite backcountry is only one of the many outcomes that occur on these trips.

Our primary mission is to use the natural environment and outdoor activities to teach participants the necessary skills and attitudes for living successful lives. We also strive to foster an appreciation for the wilderness, nature, and the world around us. In addition to unique individual backgrounds and certifications, our leaders are all trained in Adventure Based Programming. Through Adventure Based Programming, participants will be challenged to improve their sense of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence. Participants will participate in daily goal setting, group activities and debriefing (usually mixed in with marshmallows around the campfire.) This is all done within an environment of fun and support.

All participants will also learn basic backpacking skills, wilderness ethics, wilderness appreciation and engage in Leave No Trace principals. Along with creating lasting memories, it is our goal that participants will finish this adventure with a greater knowledge of themselves, the world, and the environment around them.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We develop Yosemite Guides! We have the only Junior Guide program in Yosemite. Open to youth ages 16-18 with a passion for the outdoors and helping others. 2-4 week sessions.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We are a non-profit! We offer scholarships on a sliding schedule. Please complete our Scholarship Application located on our Forms page.

In so doing, we have evolved into the experts in custom family adventures in the Yosemite backcountry. Contact us to schedule a custom Yosemite family adventure that is sure to create memories to last a lifetime!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Philosophy: SOAR believes all individuals identified with learning disabilities (LD) and attention deficit disorder (AD/HD) possess inherent talents and gifts. These abilities can mean incredible success in adulthood once these students negotiate the challenging obstacles of childhood, adolescence, and a traditional education system, usually unable to respond to individual learning styles.

SOAR�s programs are designed to allow students the opportunity to increase their independence while away from home. Independence is gained through self-motivation and life skills instruction. With this in mind, we involve our students in many decision making processes, such as setting individual goals, developing group guidelines, as well as trip and meal planning.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

Historically, our strongest offerings have involved Computer Science Robotics. However, we are always adding new topics, with a growing emphasis on other aspects of STEM. Career opportunities in STEM fields have grown three times faster than in other areas over the last decade, yet the U.S.ranks at the bottom of the developed world in graduating new professionals with STEM majors.
