An all-outdoor day camp in the East Bay. Free transportation provided from Pleasanton.
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 Pleasanton 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.

What parents are saying
I could not believe how many camp songs my son knows by heart and he loves to sing them. He keeps asking when it will be time for camp again.
– Ineke and Scott G, Pleasanton
As always, Roughing It is a highlight for my daughter. She immediately put how many days until next summer on a countdown clock on her computer. – Mary and Chris M, Pleasanton
