Nature Camps

We launched our first nature camps in Truckee in 2011 with great success! We continue to expand on this success each year by also offering camps in South Lake Tahoe and Junior High and High School aged camps in partnership with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association. For 2017, we are again offering a variety of experiences over a broad geogaphic region. For more information, click on the following links:
