Adventure. Friendship. Summer FUN.

 Donate to send kids to
camp and other summer activities.

With your help, several hundred girls and boys will have an adventurous, fun and meaningful summer filled with new experiences, building friendships and connecting with others in a positive and safe environment.

It’s just what youth need after a difficult and stressful year of distance learning, and canceled celebrations and rites of passage. And, perhaps most important, to help them deal with the increasing mental health challenges caused by isolation.

Our program is offered at no cost to the youth or their families.

Sleepaway camp for girls – four nights/five days in Portola

Help us send more than 75 girls plus staff to Sierra Nevada Journeys camp. Activities include swimming, hiking, arts and crafts, basketball, volleyball, campfires, rope course, songs and skits, and kayaking. Participants sleep in cabins and all meals are provided by the camp.

Sierra Nevada Journeys is accredited by the American Camp Association and follows strict safety and health standards to ensure the well-being of participants.
