Director, Camp Pendola
Camp Pendola is the official Youth Ministry summer camp for the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento. Located two hours northeast of Sacramento, the facility encompasses 40 acres in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, adjoining the Tahoe National Forest.
Our camp has twelve rustic cabins, an activity center, archery range, arts and crafts area, a nature program. an extremely refreshing mountain spring pond, and more than ample space for sports and exploration- all surrounded by the beauty of the great outdoors. During the summer months, we offer a First Time Camper Mini-Week for grades 1-4, backpacking and canoeing trips for older youth, a Leaders-In-Training program, a Counselor In Training Program for older teenagers. and traditional camp for all ages.
Camp Pendola has operated since our opening in 1959. In 2015, we celebrated fifty-five wonderful years of camp memories.
Enjoy your week living in a simple cabin with others where Catholic values come alive in a positive, natural, and fun-filled way. We celebrate Mass each week and begin and end each day with prayer. Our entire program, staff, spirit, and environment are conducive to and supportive of religious growth and maturity.
