Amenities

Ponderosa Lodge Basketball Courts

There are plenty of courts at Ponderosa Lodge to keep the next NBA stars entertained. Half court or full court, there's plenty of room to pick up and throw down.

Climbing Wall

Our 40' foot wall will not only strengthen your climbing skills, but also give you the chance to encourage and coach others as they climb.

Disc Golf

A fun and challenging nine-hole disc golf course that navigates through our indigenous ponderosa pines.

Paint Ball

Duck, dive, and shoot your way through bunkers, barrels, ditches, and the natural terrain of our paint ball course.

Ponderosa Pool

Hang at our HEATED pool in the center of camp. The pool is perfect for chilling, lap swims, or an exciting game of water basketball or water polo. The lights in the pool at night make the pool area a very popular hangout and activity.

Crafts

There's always something cool and exciting to make to help you remember your time at camp. Crafts range in ability and appeal for all ages and our counselors make craft time fun for girls and boys.

Redwood Flying Squirrel

With your harness attached to a cable high in the redwoods, allow your team to lift you high into the air and get a chance to see Redwood Camp like the squirrels do.

Housing & Meals

Ponderosa Lodge has 24 carpeted and heated cabins with two full bathrooms in each cabin. Guests sleep on built-in bunk beds. For speakers and leadership staff, there are four guest rooms, each with private bath.

The moms and sons sleep separately. The boys sleep in a cabin with the other boys and a counselor. The moms share a cabin with other moms.

Ponderosa's Dining Hall features a myriad of made-from-scratch entrees and arguably the best food on the mountain. Meals are served buffet style.
