Camp Pendola offers family camp on Labor Day weekend Sept. 1-3
Camp Pendola, the official youth ministry summer camp of the Diocese of Sacramento, will offer a family camp Sept. 1-3 with traditional summer fun for the whole family.
This year, the traditional summer camp program celebrated 53 years of serving children and youth ages six to 17. Participants enjoyed a week living in a simple cabin where Catholic values come alive in a positive, natural and fun-filled way.
Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills in the Tahoe National Forest 15 miles north of Nevada City, Camp Pendola is on 40 acres of natural, rustic surroundings. More than 20,000 campers over five decades have created a tradition that for many families continues every year and even passes from one generation to the next, according to Lori Rosene, director of Pendola Center.
Check-in for the family camp will be 10 a.m. on Saturday and departure will be 2 p.m. on Monday. The cost is $100 for the base family fee ($25 discount for families using tents only). Program fees (seven meals, snacks and all activities) are $70 per adult, $55 per school-age child, and $20 per each three-to-five-year-old. Children under three attend free and the maximum per family is $405. Activities will include archery, nature activities and arts and crafts led by staff members and specific activities designed for families.
