Each morning, campers are encouraged to customize their activities based on their evolving interests (see the activities list below).

In the afternoon, campers gather back together at Camp High Sierra for camp-wide games, adventures, team building and traditional summer camp fun.

Adventure Camp Activities

Adventure Camp Activities

Mammoth is a world-class outdoor recreation destination for a reason, and Mammoth adventure campers get to experience it all - from mountain biking, rock climbing and paddle boarding to stargazing, talent shows and games of glow-in-the-dark frisbee. Click the button below to see the variety of activities available to your camper.


Mountain Biking

Along with expert instruction, our two beginner trails and a dedicated beginner chair lift in the Discovery Zone make it easy for new bikers to enjoy the Bike Park. Our Pioneer Practice Loop is designed specifically to help new riders improve their riding regardless of skill level or experience. More advanced riders will progress to other areas of the Bike Park.

Mountain Horseback Adventure

After receiving expert riding instruction from professional cowboys, campers hit the trail for a true horseback adventure through the mountains with their guides. Check out Mammoth Lakes Pack Outfit for more information.

Rock Climbing

Mammoth Mountain’s rock climbing wall introduces campers to climbing in a safe, “no fall” environment. They learn about climbing strategy, roping, and attempt progressively challenging routes up the rock face. Campers can also test their skills on real rock faces at Horshoe Slabs in the Lakes Basin. These preset "sport climbs" also provide an expertly roped, "no fall" environment - perfect for climbers of all ages and skill levels.

Fishing

Campers cast their lines into the crystal clear waters of the Mammoth Lakes Basin and learn how to fish in some of the best fishing holes in the country.

Hiking

Mammoth Lakes is home to hundreds of miles of stunning side and backcountry trails. Whether on bikes or on foot, Mammoth adventure campers will find themselves out on the trail daily.

Camping

One afternoon each session, all campers go to Reds Lake to set up camp, pitch tents, and sleep under the stars on an overnight camping adventure.  Food, fire, games, and ghost stories are all part of this traditional camping experience.

Paddle Boarding

During their overnight campout at Reds Lake, all campers have the opportunity to learn how to paddle board in clear blue mountain water.  This is a favorite activity of many campers!

Swimming

Nothing beats swimming in mountain lakes and streams, and Mammoth campers have multiple opportunities during the week to cool off and play at our favorite mountain swimming holes. 

Zip Line & Bungee Trampoline

Campers take the ride of their lives on our 306-foot long zip line, then come in for a soft landing as they sail nearly 25 feet in the air on this safe and exhilarating apparatus. Our multi-station bungee trampoline is also a big hit with campers, safely allowing kids of all ages to bounce nearly 25 feet in the air to flip and perform gravity defying stunts.

Site Seeing

Devils Postpile National Monument and the amazing 100 foot Rainbow Falls are a mere 10 minute drive from the Mammoth Adventure Center. Trips to see these natural marvels, gondola rides to the Eleven53 Interpretive Center at the summit of Mammoth Mountain, and short trips to other local attractions are possible elective activities during each camp session, depending on the interest of individual campers.

Mammoth Summer Camp is directed by the same team that runs one of the most successful youth mountain programs in the country. Mentoring young people, coaching athletes of all abilities, and introducing beginners to the sheer awesomeness of mountain activities is what our staff does everyday of the year.

Our Commitment to Safety

Our #1 daily priority at Mammoth Mountain is safety. On any given day during the winter season, we have more professional safety experts on duty than other camps have people on staff, and our rigorous commitment to safety does not diminish during the summer season.
