Bear Valley Summer Day Camp high altitude fun since 2005
June 12th-August 4th

We’re excited to see everyone back for another unforgettable summer!


At Bear Valley Summer Day Camp, our mission is to give your child days filled with fun, adventure and learning amidst the breathtaking beauty of our natural playground. We are fortunate to be situated in the Sierra Nevada mountains, near forests, lakes, rivers, alpine meadows and peaks  that serve as the backdrop of our eight-week day camp. We hold deeply the values of kindness, safety and respect and work to create a camp culture that embraces and emanates such thinking.  We believe outdoor education, the activities that go along with it, and the skill-building that occurs in this framework teach healthy choices, a capable and positive sense of self, and, of course, provide FUN that will leave your children happy and exhausted at day’s end.

Another season of camp is right around the corner! Campers will get to rock climb, kayak, SUP, mountain bike, and so much more. Our session dates run from June 12th-August 4th, visit to register. This year we have three age groups for campers.  Cub is for 4-6 year old campers, Grizzly is for 7-11 year old campers, and Kodiak is for 12+ campers.  We have added many special events this year with most specifically geared to meet the needs of older campers.  Scheduled are camping, rafting and backpacking trips.  Space is limited and there is an additional fee for these events.  Check out our links on the schedules page to find out what is planned for each age group!


Join us for 8 weeks, 8 hours, or anything in between and give your child the opportunity to relish moments sure to become the fondest of memories!
