No camp in 2020; see News below.

Need a highlight for your summer? Find it at Tree of Life Lutheran Bible Camp, a one-week summer camp in the beautiful Sierra foothills! Our program is for both children and teens, from those just starting grade 4 to those just out of high school. We offer a week of Bible study, Christian fellowship, and just plain fun in God's great outdoors.

Take a look at what camp is like in our latest video! Click on the image at left to watch it. Thanks to Nicki Santoya for putting it together!

Fees will increase in 2020 but have not been set yet. Fees for 2019 were $435 for the first child in a family, $265 for each additional child, and $130 for each Little Lamb aged 4-7 (ages 3 and under are free). Senior campers (grades 10-12) are charged an additional $15 to help with the cost of the overnighter and Senior party. All campers receive a camp T-shirt.

Snack bar cards are available in $5, $10, and $15 denominations, with a $15 maximum per camper. We recommend at most $10 for Juniors and Intermediates. Campers with snack bar cards do not need money during the week, and we discourage bringing it. Unused portions of snack bar cards can be refunded at the end of camp.

Registration and fees are due three weeks before the first day of camp. Please register online. Late registrations are accepted when space is available. Please telephone or email to reserve a space if your registration will be late.

Donations to camp are gladly accepted! They will be used to help keep our fees affordable for families. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and your donations are tax-deductible. (Note that camper fees are not donations and are not deductible.) Thrivent members can direct Thrivent to donate to camp through the Thrivent Choice program.
