Due to the record-setting snows in the high Sierra Nevada Mountains this past winter, the 2023 summer camp has been moved from Camp Cole at 7,200 ft. to Camp Rancho Los Mochos at 2,434 ft. Los Mochos is located 18 miles south of the Northern California town of Livermore and 59 miles southeast of San Francisco. The 686 acre wilderness camp offers all of the amenities needed for a great summer camp experience. Updated camp check in information will be provided. Get driving directions here.
