Northern California Summer Camps
Northern California summer camps – Deer Crossing Camp. Located on Loon Lake in California, near Lake Taho. We are a wilderness camp, so there is no road access. Ice House Road ends at Loon Lake’s main public campground. From there, Deer Crossing Camp is 2.5 miles (4 km) down lake. Campers hike in to camp. All gear, food and supplies are delivered by boat. Because we are completely off the grid, we generate our own electricity, pump our own water, and maintain our section of forest. In addition, Deer Crossing Camp is a co-ed overnight summer camp for youth ages 8-17. We are located on Loon Lake in California near Lake Tahoe (as the crow flies). There is no road access into camp, so campers hike in and all gear goes in by boat. Founded on the concept that competence builds self-esteem. Our campers learn wilderness safety in addition to canoeing, map and compass, and much more. Above all, we really know how to have fun! This is truly a camping experience your kids will never forget.
