Mammoth is a world-class outdoor recreation destination for a reason, and Mammoth adventure campers get to experience it all - from mountain biking, rock climbing and paddle boarding to stargazing, talent shows and games of glow-in-the-dark Frisbee. Check out the variety of activities available to your camper.
Mountain biking is at the center of our camp experience. Our world-class lift-served bike park provides just the right amount of challenge, and all gear is included, from full-faced helmets, knee pads, gloves and top-of-the-line bikes from Trek. Whether mastering the terrain in our industry-leading Discovery Zone for beginner riders or challenging themselves on bigger trails and features, campers will find just the right balance of fun and skill-based learning from our seasoned instructors.
Mountain Horseback Adventure
After receiving expert riding instruction from professional cowboys, campers hit the trail for a true horseback adventure through the mountains with their guides. Check out Mammoth Lakes Pack Outfit for more information.
Whether ascending the artificial climbing wall at the Mammoth Adventure Center or climbing at one of the favorite local areas, campers will learn the rock climbing basics, including rope techniques with the safety of top rope routes and an experienced belayer to prevent falling. They will be challenged to push themselves beyond their perceived limits in a safe, fun, supportive teaching environment. The exhilaration of getting to the top of the wall is often a highlight of a camper's week.
Campers cast their lines into the crystal clear
waters of the Mammoth Lakes Basin and learn how to fish in some of the
best fishing holes in the country.
Mammoth Lakes is home to hundreds of miles of stunning side and backcountry trails. Whether on bikes or on foot, Mammoth adventure campers will find themselves out on the trail daily.
One afternoon each session, all campers go to Reds Lake to 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.
During their overnight campout at Reds Lake, all campers have the opportunity to learn how to paddle board in clear blue mountain water. This is a favorite activity of many campers!
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.
Zip Line & Bungee Trampoline
Campers take the ride of their lives on our 306-foot long zip line, then come in for a soft landing as they sail nearly 25 feet in the air on this safe and exhilarating apparatus. Our multi-station bungee trampoline is also a big hit with campers, safely allowing kids of all ages to bounce nearly 25 feet in the air to flip and perform gravity defying stunts.
Devils Postpile National Monument and the amazing 100 foot Rainbow Falls are a mere 10 minute drive from the Mammoth Adventure Center. Trips to see these natural marvels, gondola rides to the Eleven53 Interpretive Center at the summit of Mammoth Mountain, and short trips to other local attractions are possible elective activities during each camp session, depending on the interest of individual campers.
