Summer Camps at the Lafayette Reservoir | Roughing It

Summer Camp Activities at Roughing It

Activities take place at the spectacular 900 acre Lafayette Reservoir, with the exception of swimming and horseback riding which take place in nearby Moraga (a short 6-8 minute van shuttle from the reservoir). Campers are grouped by grade and gender and participate as a camper group in a wide variety of traditional camp programs. We offer 4 and 8 week sessions to ensure that campers have the time to develop a strong group spirit and improve their skills in each program area.
