Deer Crossing Camp

Teach Outdoor Skills at a True Wilderness Summer Camp in California's High Sierra

Deer Crossing Camp stands out from other summer camps due to our emphasis on skill building and wilderness safety, focus on developing resilient youth, and wilderness location. Our talented staff teach beginner through advanced activities: sailing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, rock climbing, technical tree climbing, arts and crafts, backpacking.

Located in California's High Sierra at 6400' elevation on Loon Lake, there is no road into camp; campers hike in and all supplies, gear, food, etc. are boated in. It is a true wilderness living experience, completely off-the-grid, with limited access to Internet, no cell phone reception. At our back door is beautiful Desolation Wilderness with 100+ lakes to explore and numerous peaks to climb.
