The City of Sacramento’s 50+ Wellness Program hosts affordable, mini vacations at Camp Sacramento in the Eldorado National Forest along Highway 50, just 18 miles west of Lake Tahoe. At an elevation of 6,500 feet, the tall pines, clear blue sky, and meandering river, Camp Sacramento provides a scenic setting that offers a wonderful way to relax in the mountains.

“Arts and Adventure in the Sierras”, a summer camp designed especially for older people, offers a wide variety of opportunities during your 5-day, 4-night stay, including meals, traditional camp activities and social events.
