Family Camp

What is Family Camp?

Family Camp, where singles are also welcome, is a camp for all ages - our oldest camper was 103.

Family Camp is informal and flexible. The day begins with singing and a Bible story; the day concludes with campfire singing, skits and inspiration. By choice, activities include a waterside, high swing, Climb the Wall, discussion groups, Bible study, hiking, folk dancing, line dancing, jigsaw puzzles, swimming (and lessons for young children), skits, arts and crafts, tennis (and tennis lessons), softball, volleyball, basketball, visiting and relaxation. There is a preschool play yard with childcare. All meals are served.

Family Camp is sponsored by the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, and has a long history, over forty years. For almost 35 years Silver Spur Conference Center near Sonora, California has been home to Family Camp. Camp takes place around the third week of June (see Forms & Info for this year's details).

Deep and lasting relationships are formed at Family Camp. Some have found their mates. Many have found friends and keep in touch through the year. Family Camp is truly an extended family. And, you are welcome!
