ADVENTURE. FRIENDSHIP. BIG MOUNTAIN FUN!
Simply put, Summer Camp at Mammoth Mountain is an experience of a lifetime.
Over the course of six fun-filled days, campers participate in a fantastic variety of mountain activities and excursions, including a day of hiking and rafting in Yosemite. We finish off the week with a horseback riding adventure through the mountains that culminates in an overnight campout under the stars.
Along the way, our campers make lifelong friends, learn new skills, discover the outdoors and their place in it, and perhaps most importantly, learn about themselves in a healthy, supportive environment.
We utilize everything Mammoth Mountain has to offer as well as the surrounding Eastern Sierra to provide our campers with an unforgetable camp experience. From expert guides and instructors, to the best camp facilities in the region, to our world-class safety team, Mammoth Kids Summer Camp is the perfect place for kids to have big time summer fun, learn, and grow.

Mammoth Adventure Center
Mammoth Mountain’s rock climbing wall introduces campers to climbing in a safe, “no fall” environment. They learn about climbing strategy, roping, and attempt progressively challenging routes up the rock face.
The area surrounding Mammoth Lakes is blessed with some of the prettiest lakes and rivers in the Eastern Sierra, and June Lake is one of the most impressive in the region. Campers mount their crafts and have a blast learning how to paddle board in clear blue mountain water.
Nothing beats swimming in mountain lakes and streams, and Mammoth campers have multiple opportunities during the week to cool off and play at our favorite mountain swimming holes.
Following a day of mountain horseback riding, campers will set up camp, pitch tents, and sleep under the stars on an overnight camping adventure. Food, fire, games, and ghost stories are all part of this traditional camping experience.
Mammoth Adventure Center
Our 306-foot long zip line extends over a small creek and the Pioneer Practice Loop, located on the back side of the Adventure Center. Campers take the ride of their lives then come in for a soft landing as they sail nearly 25 feet in the air on this safe and exhilarating apparatus.
Mammoth Adventure Center
Our EuroBungee is like flying without wings! This amazing multi-station bungee trampoline safely allows campers to bounce nearly 25 feet in the air to flip and perform gravity defying stunts.
Why Mammoth Kids Summer Camp?
Mammoth's Kids Summer camp is the best opportunity for kids to experience the incredible environment of the Sierra Nevada. With proximity to Yosemite and natural wonders of all sorts, complimented by world-class instructors and facilities, Mammoth Kids Summer is the perfect way for your child to enjoy summer in the Sierra!
1. Our Backyard
Yosemite. Devil's Postpile. The Owens River. Rainbow Falls. The Lakes Basin.
Calling the backcountry surrounding Mammoth Mountain an embarrassment of riches is an understatment. Our region is blessed with famous geological features, natural wonders, and scenic beauty, and our campers get the full experience.
2. Our Facilities
From our world-class Bike Park with beginner lifts and "progression" terrain to our summit learning center, rock climbing wall, zip lines, and Adventure Center, Mammoth provides its campers with the best equipment, service, and access to summer adventure on the west coast. When campers aren't sleeping under the stars, they're resting their heads slopeside in the Mammoth Mountain Inn.
3. Our Staff
Mammoth Kids Summer Camp is directed by the same team that runs one of the most successful youth mountain programs in the country. Mentoring young people, coaching athletes of all abilities, and introducing beginners to the sheer awesomeness of mountain activities is what our staff does everyday of the year.
4. Our Commitment to Safety
On any given day during the winter, we have more seasoned professional safety experts on duty than many camps have people on their entire staff. Our rigorous commitment to safety does not diminish during the summer season. "Keeping Mammoth Kids Safe" is the name of a year-long awareness campaign we've been running this year, and it is our #1 daily priority at Mammoth Mountain.
In addition to expert sport and activity instruction, Mammoth campers learn about the mountains, wilderness and wildlife around them. Expert naturalists from Yosemite National Park and the US Forest Service teach campers about their mountain environment and how to become responsible outdoor enthusiasts.

Dessert will be served with each meal.
