Summer Camp Facilities
Camp Pendola is nestled in the Tahoe National Forest two hours northeast of Sacramento. The facility consists of 40 acres of pine, oak and Pacific Madrone trees with 24 buildings to serve the guests who visit. Our Lady of the Sierra Chapel sits prominently in the middle of the camp. The Chapel serves campers and retreatants as a worship space and meeting room with wall to wall carpet, and a fireplace.
We offer twelve rustic cabins up on the hill for a place for campers to store their belongings and rest their heads. Cabins sleep eight to ten plus one or two counselors.
Campers will come to see that Pendola is not a camp without its campfire. We gather twice a week to share laughs and stargaze. Our large fire ring is a prominent place in camp.
Unless on camp-outs, everyone in camp eats meals together in the our large dining hall, prepared in our commercial-style kitchen.
For leisure activities, Pendola accommodates an archery range, swimming pond, nature walk, crafts center, and plenty of room for every sport. We are also proud to announce the construction of two brand new buildings: the dining room and the St. Francis of Assisi Activity Center. The multipurpose center includes a game room and small group rooms to gather for retreats and learning activities.

For Retreat Groups and SchoolsDuring the fall and winter months, we invite guests to stay in our two heated lodges. Chief Seattle and Kateri Tekawitha Lodges house over 50 guests at Camp Pendola. Tekakwitha Lodge has 14 bunk beds and Seattle has 12. Guests must bring their own bedding or a sleeping bag. Tekawitha Lodge has an attached bathroom with private showers while Chief Seattle has a separate bathhouse about 100 feet from the lodge.
No retreat is a success unless there are good meals to energize the participants and staff. Pendola offers a spacious commercial kitchen with five ovens, a large grill, six burner stove, a walk-in cooler and freezer, large ice machine, commercial coffee machine, and plenty of pots & pans. Guests will find kitchen staples such as napkins, paper towels, and salt & pepper. The kitchen and dining room offer plates, cups, and silverware for over 80 people per meal.
