Camp Sequoia offers an overnight summer camp programs for girls ages 9-17. This three-week research-based experience, led by an all-female staff, is designed to empower young women to become the best versions of themselves. Our campers come to us as socially motivated, kind and loving individuals who benefit from a community of peers and staff who can support them in a strength-based mindset. This program caters specifically to bright young women who are accepted for who they are and is divided into age-based divisions designed to help young women develop friendships, confidence, and character while having fun and gleaning skills that transcend the summer camp experience.
“The Sequoia Girl’s Program promotes positive social interactions and resiliency in a fun, nurturing environment. This didactic, evidence-based approach empowers our girls to be less likely to get hung up on situational intricacies with peers in the moment. The transformative summer at Sequoia is something that I recommend to many of my clients.”

Many of our campers gravitate towards younger children (who they find easier to relate with) or adults who find our campers to be engaging and charming. Many adults (including professionals) have difficulty understanding how a child who presents so well to them has trouble connecting with their same age peers. We want our campers to be able to engage with same-age peers and develop their social skills in order to learn how to make and retain friends and become socially successful.
Our team consists of educators and clinicians who live and work with our campers. We maintain a 2:5 staffing ratio throughout camp and while we love the time that we have as a community, we also enjoy our weekly trips where we have the opportunity to connect with the Sequoia Boys program at theme parks, waterparks and other adventure day destinations.
