At Skylake, campers experience a classic sleepaway summer camp experience where they create happy memories, develop interests and skills, experience personal growth, build friendships, and develop confidence; all while playing, learning and thriving in our beautiful outdoor setting. Children spend quality time outside learning new skills and engaging in outdoor adventures with new and old friends. Skylake is an Overnight California Summer Camp where campers experience traditional summer camp life without cell phones, video games or the internet.
