Bear Valley Y Camp is a traditional High Sierra summer resident camp. Bear Valley is located near Emigrant Gap, adjacent to Highway 20 and approximately 75 minutes from Sacramento. Since the 1930’s, Bear Valley has provided children an exciting and safe environment to explore the outdoors, build self-esteem, make new friends and have fun!
The camp provides a rustic environment with small camper cabins, a recently renovated central shower house, an old fashioned dining hall, a swimming hole, and access to limitless adventure with hiking trails, nearby lakes, and lots of wonderful wilderness.
