City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department operates Camp Concord in the El Dorado National Forest on land leased from the U.S. Federal Government.
The 29-acre forested site is conveniently located on Highway 89, just four and a half miles from South Lake Tahoe. City staff and an energetic group of community volunteers constructed the first rustic cabins as a children’s summer camp in 1967. Presently the children’s program serves up to 100 young people each week throughout the summer with an emphasis on adventure, achievement, and acceptance. Some of the kids have never left their urban and suburban environments. Camp Concord opens a new world to them—swimming in lakes, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and boating. The activities are specially designed to provide challenges, promote teamwork and social skills, and build self-esteem.
