Experience a child-focused, self-sustainable summer camp situated in the majestic southern Sierras. Our two-week program provides children ages six to sixteen with the opportunity to make lifelong friends, experience rustic ranch living, and connect with a community of positive people.
Our wide range of activities is sure to excite any child, and campers are given the opportunity to choose daily from a selection of programs. From horseback riding to rock climbing and swimming, our staff is there to help your child have a fantastic summer experience!
Our program is a unique combination and balance of individual choice and community involvement. Each camper chooses the activity he/she wants to do during each activity period. We believe that this is a great way to inspire the child's individual interests.
Being on a working ranch is a great way to be part of something greater than oneself. Each camper contributes to ranch work by doing a chore every day. We emphasize how important and valuable participation is in order to keep the camp and ranch in tip-top working order.
The Jameson Family has been helping children grow since 1934. Erica Jameson, granddaughter of our camp's founder Roderick, is the director of JRC, overseeing every aspect of camp with the help of her parents, Ross & Debby Jameson, and CIT Director Caitlin Latta, a close friend of the Jameson family who has attended and worked at camp since she was eight years old.
