Staff, Counselors, and Adult Cabin Leaders

If you are interested in being a Staff member, Counselor, or Adult Cabin Leader, follow the link!


Our camp is located at Camp Sylvester in the Stanislaus National Forest.  It nestled between Pinecrest Lake and the snow-covered slopes of Dodge Ridge ski resort, with updated cabins and recreation halls sprawling over nearly ten acres.  Camp Sylvester provides the fresh air, green pines and excitement of an outdoor adventure with all of the comforts of a rustic resort.

Campers learn many new skills like team building, obstacle course, crafting, and archery.  Campers can fish, hike and participate in canoeing, swimming, and waterfront activities.  Each evening, members look forward to the campfire program with singing, skits, and fun that are traditional favorites. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are served.

Counselors supervise campers in their cabin, participate in and lead general or specialized camp activities.  They are expected to assume responsibility for the campers and under the direction of Camp Staff.  Adult Chaperone Leaders will have camp assignments.
