August 2020: Thank you for your support during this challenging year. The health and safety of our campers and staff remains our highest priority and we are working hard to explore multiple contingencies and operating models for a safe 2021 reopening. We are optimistic that we will be able to provide programs and services next summer. However, we are still going through the very difficult work of exploring how to do so safely for our campers, staff, and the Quincy-area community. Because the status of testing availability, treatment options, vaccine development, and public health orders continue to change, we do not expect to open up registration for our programs until January or February 2021. We will provide more updates as we know more specific timing details. Thanks for your continued patience and understanding! To stay connected with the most update to date news on Summer 2021, make sure you are on our e-mail list by signing up at the bottom of this page.

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.
Achievement & Friendships
Campers can also 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 tent/cabin group-based, campers often become very close to their fellow tent/cabinmates. We believe strongly in creating a tent and cabin culture that emphasizes teamwork, friendship and respect.
“Working together like a team is the expectation, but becoming close like a family is the goal.”
OFRC Youth Camp Counselor Motto

UPDATED JANUARY 2019
- Families may request up to two campers to be in the same group as their child, with the children being within one year of age of each other. We will do our very best to honor all groupmate requests, but due to other family’s requests, age and grade breakdowns and dates of registration, we cannot 100% guarantee that all group requests will be granted. If you request more than two groupmates, we will simply honor your first two listed.
- For more information, please review our detailed Tent/Cabin Groupmate Request Policy by CLICKING HERE.
- Cancellations and refunds must be requested in writing.
- Campers requesting full refunds prior to 21 days before the first day of Youth Camp will receive a full refund, minus a $50.00 cancellation fee. If your initial payment was made on a credit card, an additional 3% will be charged on any cancellations.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Thanks to the support of many generous individual donors, supporters and funders, we are able to provide a select number of Camp Scholarships (“Camperships”) each summer to families who cannot afford the full cost of camp due to financial barriers or circumstantial hardships. Camperships are largely determined by gross household income.
