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.

Disc Golf

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

High Ropes

Our high ropes courses will push you higher and farther with these aerial challenges. Climb the tower, take a leap, traverse the wires and travel through the air on our new zip line!

Ponderosa Pool

Hang at our HEATED pool, in the center of camp, and maybe even hit the high dive if you’re game. 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.

Laser Tag

With enough units to facilitate two teams, these laser markers make camp the ultimate laser tag arena. You won't find inflatable barriers here, but how often do you get to hide behind a giant redwood or ponderosa pine when playing Laser Tag? Exactly. It's awesome.

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.

Archery

Practice perfection with our staff at the shooting range by challenging each other with accuracy or just by improving your personal skills in a controlled environment.

Target Sports

Try your hand at archery or BB Guns. With our trained staff, you'll be able to aim at the targets and take your best shot. Will you get a bulls-eye?

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.

Ponderosa's Dining Hall features a myriad of made from scratch entrees and arguably the best food on the mountain. Family Style or Buffet available.
