Traditional summer camp activities since 1972!
Since 1972, Roughing It has been offering summer camps in an all-outdoors environment for children ages 4 to 16. We serve many Lafayette and Lamorinda families and are located at the beautiful Lafayette Reservoir.
We provide many outdoor activities found in a traditional summer camp, including horseback riding, swimming, waterfront activities, and more! We also have programs specifically designed for teens and younger campers. Come check us out at a local event or talk with a camper parent in your area. Feel free to drop by our Lafayette office!
Our 36 Bus Stops serve San Fransisco, East Bay, Contra Cost and Tri-Valley and certain areas are available for home pick up. See our Camp Bus Stops & Home Pickup Locations »
Our buses are driven by year-round professional school bus drivers in safe school buses.

What parents are saying
We love that he gets to have a summer camp experience living in SF. The great location, ease of getting him there and back, and extended program all make for a more relaxing summer. We also love the variety of outdoor activities.

I love the “old fashioned/East Coast” campy feeling. I love the social skills/good values aspect of it that goes along with all the fun. It seems to me that camp helped my son “come out of his shell” with others.
