A sharp smell of fresh cut grass, distant laughter and “ker-splash!” at the pool. Ripping open a letter that sings of home, softly talking while playing cards or painstakingly making sure each thread of a friendship bracelet is “just right”- these small moments are the glue that bind a summer at camp. Since 1934, Camp El Tesoro‘s overnight camp has inspired youth in all moments, quiet and loud – to DO and BE!
The wide range of activities and programs create opportunities that show each camper they can achieve whatever they set their minds to. Hiking through wooded terrain to Mt. Loma, singing songs with friends around the campfire and zip lining on the challenge course are more than just fun activities; they are moments for campers to learn and thrive. Camp offers exciting times, but the moments in-between solidify the friendships and the personal growth that keep our campers coming back each year.
How El Tesoro is responding to COVID-19 for a safe, fun 2021.
El Tesoro’s overnight camp has inspired boys & girls to let their curiosity be their guide – to nature, their world and what they can accomplish! Age appropriate activities develop confidence in our campers while they build new skills and make new friends in the outdoors. The wide range of activities from horseback riding and archery to crafts, swimming and drama create opportunities that show each camper they can achieve whatever they set their minds to.
Campers spend the week intensely focused on equestrian studies, learning everything from anatomy to grooming to riding styles while still enjoying camp activities that create life-long bonds. Grades 4-10, limited to 40 campers.
