Mountain Meadow Ranch Summer Camp

Mountain Meadow Summer Camp

AGES: 7-16

A co-ed, traditional sleep away camp for kids age 7 to 16, uniquely located on a 900-acre ranch in the Sierras north of Lake Tahoe and a 1.5 hour drive northwest of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Family-owned and operated since 1956, our limited enrollment and our tech-free policy allow for a more personal camp experience and family-like feel that bring all of the camp together. Campers choose from our various activities 2-4x daily, with weekends and evening activities devoted to camp-wide activities.

At MMR, campers experience more than the fun and activities that are a given of the camp experience, but also personal growth in self-confidence and character, fostering new friendships and memorable experiences that last a lifetime. Our entire program is centered around the principles of servant leadership and our guiding values that we weave throughout the camp experience: inclusivity, empathy, stewardship, integrity, authenticity, and mindfulness.
