Camp Hidden Valley

AT CAMP HIDDEN VALLEY…

campers, ages 8-12, enjoy activities from swimming, sports and outdoor adventure to drama, dance, art, photography and architecture. The camp serves children with and without special needs.

Counselors and campers build a sense of community with cheers, a camp carnival with a surprise theme and enthusiastic GaGa ball contests.

My favorite thing about camp is swimming because I get to learn how to swim and play with my friends at the same time! 

Anita, 9, Camper

I love all the activities I can choose from. I can play sports, learn about photography, and build rockets in science!

Christian, 12, Camper

I like going swimming and being in the woods. And I love doing all the basketball activities – we play almost every day!

Ariel, 10, Camper

Being a camper here when I was younger has definitely helped me be a better counselor. There are some kids who are leaving home for first time ever. I try my best to bond with them because I can relate.
