2017 YOUTH CAMPS
WHY OAKLAND FEATHER RIVER YOUTH CAMP?
At Oakland Feather River Camp’s Youth Overnight Camp, girls and boys ages 7-15, participate in traditional summer camp activities while making new friends, trying new things and experiencing personal character development. We believe our youth camp encompasses the best of the classic summer overnight experience – traditional camp activities, group bonding opportunities and access to the outdoors.
Read on to learn what makes OFRC Youth Camp unique:
Oakland Feather River Camp is located in Plumas National Forest on Spanish Creek. Outdoor enthusiasts are attracted year round to the area’s many streams and lakes, beautiful deep canyons, rich mountain valleys, meadows, and lofty peaks. Our beautiful site will be home for your camper for a week they’ll never forget.
Character & Friendships
While fun Campers can learn a lot during their time at OFRC – how to shoot a bow and arrow, how to cook a meal over an open fire and tons of classic camp songs. However, our real strength, focus and priority is creating friendships, making memories and building character – all while having fun in the sun!
Our staff are trained to keep an eye out for opportunities to strengthen friendships or make ordinary experiences extra-ordinary. Since many of our activities are cabin group-based, campers often become very close to their fellow cabinmates. We believe strongly in creating a cabin culture that emphasizes teamwork, friendship and respect. As one of our counselors once said of his cabin,”Working together like a team is an expectation, but becoming close like a family is the goal.”
Wide Variety of Activity Offerings
Youth campers enjoy a wide variety of activities while at OFRC Youth Camp. The days are long, but the week flies by. They make new friends and are encouraged to try new things, experiencing themselves and others in brand new ways. A sample list of activities is below:
- Arts & Crafts
- Nature Hikes
- The Camp Talent Shows
- Capture The Flag
- Scavenger Hunts
- Group Challenge Course
- Sleepouts under the Stars
