Come with us to our beautiful lakefront setting - a paradise for outdoor living. The pine-covered shores of Bass Lake have been our home in the Sierras since 1970. Campers enjoy a true camping experience with tent living while still utilizing some modern day conveniences. Fun and adventure are woven into each day along with the opportunity to develop new skills or improve old ones.

Ages 7 - 17

Peninsula Bay Cities Sierra Sleep-Away

Celebrating our 51st summer @Bass Lake!

The Sierra Sleep Away is currently full with a few specific spaces remaining. Please contact the office to be placed on the waitlist.

Covid-19 Update:

We greatly missed seeing all of our campers last summer due to the pandemic and closure of the Sierra Sleep-Away program. 

Here is our update for 2021: 

We are underway planning our PBC Day Camp as we will “Bring the Fun in Summer 2021!” We are also planning for the Sierra Sleep-Away. 

While Day Camps were allowed to operate last summer, and still have permission even during the stay-at-home order, we are still waiting for the State of California to open resident camps. The main barrier to Sierra Sleep-Away operating in-person for 2021 is a lack of guidelines from the California Department of Public Health. Though we are working with our professional organizations to get those guidelines released, we think that the voices of our camp families can also help. Please visit savenextsummer.com to learn how you can help urge the State of California to release guidelines for resident camps for the summer of 2021. 

Kids (and parents) need summer camp more than ever before! Children and teens need to be outside, to be with each other, to hike, explore, laugh, socialize and build relationships, in person, every day. Camp is the perfect place to take a break from devices and screens, chairs and desks, and Zooms! We are grateful to offer the opportunity everyone needs and are optimistic the guidelines will be released soon. 

The Sierra Sleep-Away is currently full for 2021 with a waitlist. There may be a few spaces that will be available later. Please contact the office to be placed on the waitlist.

Thank you for your support. We will have more updates soon and can't wait to welcome you back to Sierra Sleep-Away at Bass Lake this summer!
