A leadership team member leads each overnight trip. Trips include cost of admission to activities, lodging, transportation and meals. Space is limited on all trips and registration is on a rolling basis. You may submit a separate check payable to Camp Sequoia for trip tuition (please note this on the check). Guidelines for additional spending money are listed below. Please note that trip dates as scheduled are subject to change (within the same session of camp) in case of forecast extreme inclement weather. Please note that, with the current global climate of uncertainty, our off campus trips will be limited this year (summer 2020). Please contact leadership for details.
Join us for a day of adventures in the woods with opportunities to hike, canoe, go swimming, build a fire, cook a meal over the coals, roast marshmallows, look for wildlife and spend the evening around the campfire eating S’mores watching the stars and telling stories. Wake up to the smell of hot chocolate and breakfast. We will have field games, a hiking option and a morning activity as options before returning to camp. This was our most popular trip in 2019.
Both Sessions, All Sequoia Campers
V.I.P. Rustic Retreat

V.I.P. Rustic overnight adventure will be offered both first and second sessions this year due to it’s popularity in the past. This enhanced overnight experience features a longer time in the woods where campers can partake in activities like night hiking and learning constellations, fishing, paddle boating, useful knots and lashings and our own CAST IRON CHEF challenge with campers designing and competing on dutch oven cooking under the tutelage of Eagle Scouts.

Our first stop will be to Lehigh Valley Laser Tag. Let’s see if you have what it takes to be a laser tag master in this two story arena full of glowing lights and fog! Next we’re headed to our hotel in Mount Pocono, PA for dinner and a night-time swim. Get a good night sleep because we have a big day ahead of us at CamelBeach Water Park. When it’s time to dry off we’ll take a ride up the mountain on the ski lift before returning to camp.
