What's Included

Base Camp is an introduction to trip camping that requires no previous experience or skill. Before arriving you choose one of four skills you would like to learn: Mountain Biking, White-Water Canoeing, Sailing, or Backpacking The first part of the week you learn the basics of your chosen skill under the instruction and supervision of experts. After the basics are learned each module leaves for a trip during which you are able to put your new skills into practice. By the end of the week you will feel prepared to handle yourself in the outdoors, and you will be ready to tackle another of our one of a kind adventure trip camping challenges. Most gear is provided with some exceptions. By selecting this camp you are signing up for the BACKPACKING module.

About This Organizer

Sequoia Brigade Camp is the camping arm of Christian Service Brigade for California. Our emphasis for more than 50 years has been Discipleship, Evangelism and Christian Maturity
Every Summer we provide low cost and high quality residential and trip camps for boys and girls as well as Father/Son and Father/Daughter camps where Dads can spend quality time with their children.

We believe that the camp experience is a tool that God has used for years to bring individuals and families closer to him as they draw near to his creation and take a break from their everyday lives that are so often full of distractions. 

Our Goal at the end of each camp is that each camper will go home having:

  • Heard the good news of The Gospel
  • Grown in their Christian walk
  • Memorized and hidden God's word in their heart
  • Learned new outdoor skills
  • Had a total blast and created memories that will last a lifetime
  • Been changed forever by God's word 

Our Father/child camps are designed to provide a lot of opportunities to build memories together while providing a lot of flexibility so the dad and child can direct their time.

It is important to note that though many of our camps and trips are not officially Father and Son or Father and Daughter camps, we not only welcome but encourage dads to come along with their children. That time together having adventures is often some of the most important time that a dad can have with his children and can mark a turning point in their relationship.

Because our focus is on creating a setting for discipleship we provide a high counselor to camper ratio at our residential and trip camps. No one gets lost in the crowd.
