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 campers who visit. Our Lady of the Sierra Chapel sits prominently in the middle of the camp. Campers enjoy swimming and padleboating in the pond, archery, hiking throughout camp and the surrounding area, sleeping out under the stars and opening and closing campfires.
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 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 of two new buildings: the dining room and the St. Francis of Assisi Activity Center. The multipurpose center includes a game room and small group rooms.
