Each summer the City of Sacramento’s 50+ Wellness Program hosts affordable, mini-vacations for older adults at Camp Sacramento in the Eldorado National Forest. Are you looking to spend a week in the beautiful Sierras enjoying scenery while getting in touch with your artistic side or are you looking to take on an adventure like kayaking? We have the camp for you!

The “Arts and Adventure in the Sierras” Senior Camp offers a wide variety of activities during your 5 day, 4 night stay at camp. Your registration fee includes meals, nature walks and many in-camp activities, social events and all the fresh air you can take!

Some campers want to fit in as many activities as possible each day. Some come for the simple pleasure of enjoying naps on the patio, reading and visiting in a relaxed setting, playing games or working on independent projects. The point is, you can do as much or as little as you like!
