June 15 - August 7 2020

Sign Up Today for Summer 2020!

COVID-19 Update (3/24/20): As of now, we plan to operate summer camp on the scheduled dates with our regular itinerary of exciting outdoor based activities. Should we need to cancel part or all of camp at a later date, we will notify those registered and provide a refund minus a $50 administrative fee. Once summer arrives, we will take any and every responsible action we can to help prevent the further spread of this virus. This includes washing hands and using disinfectant regularly, avoiding large crowds, and facilitating activities in smaller groups. For the most part, these practices have already been in place at camp and we look forward to hosting another fun summer full of adventure and friendships. If you have any questions regarding camp or registration, feel free to email Mel Rynd, Camp Director, at She is currently working part-time hours and will get back to you as soon as possible. Keep the good vibes going and enjoy this time home with your families. We look forward to seeing you this summer happy and healthy!


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.

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!
