Camp Mountain High is a five-day camp program for adults, both young and old, with varying degrees of developmental and other related disabilities. The camp is held every year at the Jack L. Boyd Outdoor School, located in Fish Camp, CA, just outside of scenic Yosemite National Park. The camp is an extremely accessible facility with eight large cabins, paved walkways, and ramps leading into all the cabins. Also located on the campgrounds are a dining hall, accessible restrooms, a nurse’s station with medical staff on call 24-hours a day, a nature classroom, a campfire area, and great walking trails.
Our camp program provides an excellent opportunity for our 35-40 campers to observe nature first-hand and to learn about our environment and the world in which we live. We offer a variety of fun and exciting activities, such as nature walks, nightly fireside chats, sing-a-longs, and dancing. We also host a variety of other outdoor and indoor activities for all those who wish to participate.
Our camper to staff ratio is 4:1. Because of this, all of our campers are able to receive the care and attention that they need. Our team of mature and caring staff provides leadership in all of our sessions. Volunteers of 16 years of age and older are recruited from a variety of schools and colleges to help staff our camp sessions. These volunteers are made up of individuals donating their time and energy to help in this wonderful camp experience.
For many of our campers, this is their only trip outside of the city limits and away from their home setting all year long. We have many returning campers that look forward to this experience for several months prior to actually attending.
