FAMILY CAMP 2024 • May 24-27


It’s an Olympic year, and nothing will top the fun, challenge, and excitement of the Games at Camp Gold Hollow! These aren’t your typical Olympic competitions, but a new take on events where everyone can play and everyone can win. Enjoy a relaxing, fun-filled, outdoor experience with your family, friends, or just yourself. Nestled among pine trees, camp is located 2 miles north of Nevada City, CA on Lake Vera.

Join us for a full weekend of program that will include activities for all ages: Archery, Crafts, Outdoor Cooking, Canoeing, Singing, Campfires, Swimming, Time in Nature And of course, GOLD HOLLOW GAMES!!

We are requesting every family bring a white or light colored plain T shirt for each family member which you can transform into a uniform while at camp.

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: Families will be assigned to a kiosk and will sleep on a platform deck under the stars. Cots and mattresses are provided. Each group of kiosks shares showers, sinks, and toilets. If you are uncomfortable sharing a kiosk, you have the option of pitching your own tent and joining others in our Olympic Village.
