Gold Hollow Resident Camp offers an outdoor experience for youth 8-17 years old on the shores of scenic Lake Vera nestled among pine trees. It is perfect for first time and experienced campers alike.

Campers can choose from a wide variety of activities and new experiences; canoeing, cook outs, arts & crafts, archery, hiking, games, and swimming are popular options. Campers sleep outdoors on cots with mattresses on a platform with their counselor and cabin group friends. Nutritious meals are served family style.

This offers a chance for new and seasoned “Gold Hollowers” to put down their electronic devices and spend days experiencing new adventures and building lifelong friendships. Our commitment is to helping youth “find their spark” and THRIVE in a safe and caring outdoor environment.

Safety considerations:  All staff and campers will need to show proof of negative COVID test within 24 hours of arrival at camp.  The majority of our activities take place in outdoor settings.
