4-H Summer Camp at Silver Lake

Waterfront activities at Silver Lake during 4-H Camp
Our camp is located at Silver Lake Camp at the foot of Thunder Mountain in Amador County.  The historic camp is about 100 miles east of Stockton on Highway 88 at an elevation of 7,300 feet, and is less than an hour from Lake Tahoe.

Campers can fish, hike and participate in waterfront activities like canoeing, kayaking, and swimming.  Campers can learn many new skills like outdoor cooking, leather crafting, and archery.  Each evening, members look forward to the campfire program with singing, skits, and fun that are traditional favorites. 

Junior Counselors supervise campers in their cabin, participate in and lead general or specialized camp activities.  They are expected to assume responsibility for the campers in their group and work along with other JC’s and Adult Leaders on camp assignments. 

Join the Camp Committee

The overall goal of the Camp Committee is to assure that campers and camp staff have a healthy, safe, high quality, well-organized, educational, and FUN camping experience.  

Monthly meetings are usually held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the County 4-H Office.  All are welcome to attend!
