Skylake Yosemite Camp
For a traditional East Coast camp experience on the West Coast, there’s Skylake Yosemite, which is located on a lake in the Sierra National Forest, about 15 miles from Yosemite National Park in California. Also big on camper-choice, kids here can do everything from ballet to tennis to paddle to yoga (okay, so maybe it’s not entirely East Coast-traditional). And parents tend to like that the camp serves meals cooked from scratch with a lot of organic fruits and veggies, and with meat delivered fresh from a Fresno market. The camp runs a 2- and 4-week session for kids age 7 to 15.
