More about CGC Camp
CGC is a camp & retreat center near Foresthill in California. We specialize in hosting groups at our site that connects them to nature. Serving nonprofit groups sizes from just 10 people up to 104.

With 428 acres in the Sierra Nevada Foothills we boast stately pines and panoramic views which make this site a beautiful and exciting place to go to for summer camp, all kinds of year-round adult retreats, and weekend family camps.  Whether you want to bring your group for the day, or for longer stays we have a variety of lodging options and indoor/outdoor meeting areas. 

CGC is an ideal place to bring groups to focus on whatever type of program you have. It is a great place to have fun--whether relaxing by the swimming pool, going on scenic hikes, or enjoying the view of the Crystal Range of the High Sierras.

An additional 46 guests can be accommodated May-October. Tent campers are also welcome and add to the numbers of guests in warm weather.
