Youth Camp at Camp Concord
in South Lake Tahoe

May 11, 2020

After much consideration and conversations with local, state, and federal representatives along with those in El Dorado County and the US Forest Service, the City of Concord has elected to not open Camp Concord this summer. The challenges with social distancing while at camp and uncertainties to shelter in place orders were all considered in the decision.

Friends of Camp Concord fully supports the City of Concord’s decision as we too were being challenged on how to safely conduct camp sessions and programming for our campers, counselors as well as the Camp Concord staff we interact with on a daily basis while at camp. We are especially sad as we know this year, more than ever was going to be vital to allow kids to be outdoors, create lifelong friendships, and laugh with their peers.

If your camper is registered with us, here are your refund options;

a. A 100% full refund of your deposit/payment on file. 

b. Keep your deposit on file to be applied to 2021. This is only available if your child will be between the ages of 8-13 once camp begins next year

c. Consider turning your deposit into a 100% tax-deductible donation to Friends of Camp Concord to support their camper scholarship fund

Please email Amy Riddle at youthcamp@friendsofcampconcord.org no later than June 1, 2020, indicating the refund option you would like to receive.  If we do not hear from you by June 1, 2020, your deposit/payment we have on file will automatically be refunded.

 

Campers will experience time-worn traditions of camping in the Sierra Nevada as kids canoe, kayak, go crawdad fishing, hiking, swimming, horseback riding, attending dances, putting on skits, playing volleyball, doing arts & crafts, practicing archery and having fun at the beach around majestic Lake Tahoe, not to mention enjoying the magic of story-time around the campfire under the starry night sky. Boundless days of activity and exploration await your kids at Camp Concord where memories are made to last a lifetime.

The one-day escape from camp will include a visit to Tree Top Adventure for zip lining and tree climbing during the week of July 6th. Campers will visit Camp Richardson Corral for horseback riding the week of June 29th.

Thank you for choosing Camp Concord for your child’s summer adventure. We are excited about this year’s program – some old favorites, some new additions. Our goals of Adventure, Acceptance, Achievement, Safety, Growth and Friendship for every child are showcased each year.
