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!

What parents are saying

My son really enjoys going to camp at Roughing It. He’s not an easy person to get up in the morning; but when it’s to go to Roughing It he is up and ready  …just wish it would be the same for school!
-Dora C, Danville
