With a backyard of incomparable beauty and stellar staff-led programming for campers of all ages, the Lair of the Golden Bear is the perfect place to make family memories. By the time departure day arrives, you will have fallen in love with our special corner of the Sierra Nevada—and you’ll be counting down the days until you return next summer.
Camps for Adults
In addition to our family-friendly camps, we also curate adult getaways. Relax and reconnect with friends during the Women’s Wellness Weekend, Sports & Recreation Camp, or the Lair Food & Wine Experience.
College Prep Camp
College Prep Camp is back, June 10 – 13! Designed for students who will be high school seniors this fall, our program focuses on the application process and essay writing, with some Lair fun too!
Oski Year-Round Cabins
The Lair has built ten cabins for year-round use at Camp Oski. Each cabin sleeps up to six guests with a queen bed, bunk bed, and two single beds in the loft, and has its own private bathroom, heat, mini-fridge, and more. Join us this fall or winter wonderland for a cozy stay!
