2021 Summer Camping in the Sierras

Camp Kern’s facilities received some love and upgrades during the summer of 2020 and more is to come. In addition, a refreshed program will be introduced during the summer of 2021. Finally, there are two new camps: Webelos Adventure Camp and Scouts BSA Tri-camp.***




Camp Kern offers a well-rounded program with opportunities for adventure!

At Camp Kern, Scouts experience a magnificent environment where they can create happy memories, develop interests and skills, experience personal growth, build friendships, and develop confidence; all while advancing in Scouting, learning, and thriving in our beautiful outdoor playground of Huntington Lake, California. Scouts spend quality time outside learning new skills and enjoying engaging outdoor adventures with new and old friends. Camp Kern is a place where Scouts experience a traditional summer camp life as Scouts have since 1939.
