Transcript of Hye Camp Staff Presentation

About the Property Our camp is located within five miles of the entrance to Kings Canyon and the Sequoia National Park, 35 miles east of Fresno.
Our property is 160 acres and is at an elevation of 4,400 feet. It offers a unique, serene retreat setting perfect for reflection.
There are twelve camper cabins located on “Camper Hill,” all surrounding the shared bathhouse. Counselors stay on this hill in cabins with their respective campers.
Five staff cabins are located near the Mess Hall, where everyone shares meals together. There are also rooms for staff located just off of the Mess Hall.

The following year, and almost every subsequent year, camp took place at Camp Sugar Pine, until…

In December 1987, the Western Diocese purchased the camp we have today. Important Information and Dates Family Day will be held at camp on May 18th. We encourage any new campers or staff members to attend in order to get a feel for camp. Please sign up on the website.
