It's Time!  Start Planning For Summer!

Oljato (pronounced ol-JAY-toe) is Pacific Skyline Council’s premier summer camp and a favorite destination of Troop 33. We return every year to this picturesque camp on Huntington Lake, located in the Sierra Mountains south of Yosemite and north of Kings Canyon at an elevation of 7000-8000 ft. and accessible only by pontoon boat. The camp is about 240 miles away, a 5-6 hour drive by chartered bus. It offers aquatics on the beautiful lake, nature, handicrafts, and shooting sports areas. It also has great food!

Each year, Troop 33 reserves the Navajo Campsite, which houses the roughly 50 members of Troop 33 who attend. Days are spent working on merit badges such as woodcarving, mammal study, rifle shooting, canoeing and swimming, and free time is usually filled with card games, ball games and trips to the Trading Post. Meals are prepared by the amazing staff and served buffet style with plenty of options - no one walks away hungry! Scouts sleep in raised-floor 2-person canvas tents. The boys don't need anything special for Oljato. For new scouts who don't yet have their scout supplies, a sleeping bag is a must-have, and a sleeping pad, backpack and hiking boots are highly recommended. General scout supplies will be discussed during the first year orientation, and the specific packing list will be reviewed in late May. 

Camp Oljato is a wonderful opportunity to be immersed in boy scouts for a week. The scouts forge strong connections while enjoying a week full of adventure. They’ll arrive home smelly, dirty and with many stories to share. Please sign up quickly to reserve your spot! This is a popular camp with only a limited number of spots available, and we fill to capacity each year.

Interested adults may sign up too. While preference is given to uniformed adult leaders, there are always a few additional adult volunteers needed. Oljato also offers a family campsite. Find more information at

Please contact Ann Reid,, with questions.
