Registration is now open!

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.

Volunteers are always needed! We have no paid staff, so we rely on volunteers for everything we do. Click on Staff to learn how you can help.

Fees in 2024 are $600 for the first child in a family, $375 for each additional child, and $150 for each Little Lamb aged 6 or over (ages 5 and under are free). Senior campers (grades 10-12) are charged an additional $25 to help cover their special activities. All campers receive a camp T-shirt.

Snack bar cards are available in $5, $10, and $15 denominations, with $15 maximum recommended 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.

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 and to provide fee reduction scholarships to those who need them. 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.)

  • Donate by check: Make donation checks checks payable to Tree of Life Lutheran Bible Camp, and mail them to Timothy Mann, Camp Treasurer, 518 Channing Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94301.
  • Donate with Zelle: Zelle is a free online service that lets you make payments from your bank account. For information, check with your bank or see Give to Zelle as the address to pay to, and include a comment saying the payment is a donation.
