News & Announcements

Another year of wonderful outdoor experiences has come and gone. We are grateful that 2022 saw a brighter time. Next year can only be better! In addition to our active Camp Fire Club programs in the greater Sacramento area, Gold Hollow once again welcomed children and families for summer programs.

Camp Director Carol Meyers, aka “haps”, shared her memories of 2022 at Gold Hollow:

“Although our week at camp was so suddenly and unfortunately cut short by Covid, the days beforehand were filled with wonderful memories and hopefully some lasting friendships.

I will hold close memories of:

  • the sound of campers on the lake (swimming, splashing, and laughing)
  • songs and skits around the campfire
  • games on the meadow 
  • special interest adventures of hitting the target at archery, paddling canoes, catching a fish, launching rocket blasters, and the strumming of ukuleles and guitars.

We had a record number of 47 campers, CITs, and staff who woke up early for membership in the Lake Vera Polar Bear Swim Club!

The best memory is of the many campers saying, “I want to come back next year” –especially from campers who had never been away from home before and weren’t so sure how they were going to like camp when they first arrived.  

This can be attributed to two things: 

  • the beautiful property that allows campers to experience outdoor fun in a variety of ways
  • the compassion, determination, and enthusiasm of all the staff to provide a safe, inclusive, and meaningful program.”
