Kids Summer Camp

Tahoe's best summer camp for kids.

 
 

Please Note: Summer Camp for 2021 is currently sold out.

 

Due to the current pandemic, we have chosen to restrict the number of campers in each age group. This is in an abundance of precaution to ensure we can operate a fun and safe summer camp. We are currently sold out for all age groups.

Through the spring and summer, we will work to coordinate with State and County officials to follow all COVID-19 guidelines for operating a youth summer camp. If we are able to safely reopen registration later this year, we will do so.

Why Sugar Bowl Summer Camp?

World Class Trail Network

Between Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge, we offer miles of private mountain trails for hiking and biking plus basecamp sits next to the world-renowned Pacific Crest Trail. There is plenty of space to explore and have fun.

 

High-Alpine Lake Mary

Campers have access to the quintessential mountain lake, tailor-made for swimming, canoeing, fishing, paddleboarding and waterside fun. The hardest part is getting kids to leave the lake to enjoy other activities.

 

Basecamp at Village Hall

Centrally located in the heart of Sugar Bowl, Village Hall will be the epicenter for fun.  Campers will use Village Hall as their basecamp for adventure, utilizing the classroom space to dive deeper into the history and culture they learned about during their fun Sierra excursions. Lunch will be served from the Village Hall cafeteria or an outdoor BBQ on the lawn.

 

Dedicated Staff of Educators & Counselors

The Sugar Bowl Ski Team & Academy's experience teaching kids on snow and in the classroom translates perfectly to the summer educational development you want to see in a Summer Camp.  SBSTA knows how to connect with kids while keeping them safe and engaged in fun and adventure. The leadership team of teachers and counselors at SBSTA have developed a national reputation for taking a holistic approach to education, athletics, academics and mountain sports. They pride themselves on much more than their programs; they are in the business of youth and character development that focuses on respect, integrity, empathy, sportsmanship and the pursuit of personal excellence.

 

Most Importantly ... Pure Summer Fun

All of the planning for these programs is designed to support your kids having FUN. A week is not enough to participate in all the activities available at Sugar Bowl Summer Camp. We strongly believe that a combination of structured activities and choice provide optimal opportunities for personal growth. Experiences range from hiking to archery, studying petroglyphs to learning about the Emigrant Trail.  These activities allow campers to grow and develop independence. We feel this freedom of choice is critical to developing independence and responsibility. They will have a blast the entire time.

Summer Camp Options

Ages 4-6

The youngest age groups will enjoy structured and unstructured playtime. Expect your kids to return worn-out from a day of running around outside, playing games, gold panning, taking part in arts & crafts, plus plenty of time cooling off at Lake Mary. Campers in this age group are provided a closer level of supervision for maximum fun while finding educational opportunities around each corner.

The Marmot age group will experience adventures deeper into the Sierra, exploring the history and culture of the region while enjoying all the beauty of the mountains. There will still be plenty of games and activities, including canoeing, swimming, paddleboarding, fishing, gold panning, performance art and more. Marmots will enjoy an exciting week filled with adventure and wonder.

Pine Martens   |   Registration Closed
Ages 10-12

Pine Martens are the Seniors at camp. Their playtime is less structured while still under the watchful eye of the counselors. This allows for individual growth and independence for our 10-12-year-olds. Daily, off-campus adventures for the Pine Martens might include a hike around China Wall and the Petroglyphs, mountain biking in Van Norden Meadow or a visit to Donner Lake. They’ll have plenty of fun on-campus too, with fishing, paddleboarding, canoeing, mountain biking and archery.
