All-outdoors 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 Moraga and Lamorinda families and are located at the beautiful Lafayette Reservoir.

We provide many outdoor activities found in a traditional summer camp, including 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

After countless swim lessons over the past 4 years, my daughter still refused to put her face in the water. By the second session of camp, she was happily going underwater. I never thought it would happen. I credit the patience and encouragement of the swim staff to accomplish what I had thought was impossible!      -Debbie and Henry G, Moraga
