Camp Oljato 75th Anniversary Patch


Camp Oljato is Pacific Skyline Council’s premier summer camp and a favorite destination of Troop 33. This year will be extra special as we celebrate Camp Oljato's diamond jubilee. That's 75 years of scouts enjoying outdoor fun, earning Merit Badges, learning new skills, and eating good food!

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. Accessible 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. New activities this year are horseback riding, log rolling, and water skiing.

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. 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. 

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 http://www.pacsky.org/Camps/Oljato.

Please contact Ann Reid with questions.
