1. Camp Exploration SNOWvernight Camp (Dec 26-Dec 30)
West Los Angeles, California

Camp Exploration SNOWvernight Camp is a one-week annual expedition from West Los Angeles to the beauty of June Mountain. Whether totally new to skiing or a black diamond expert, this is a great opportunity to get away to the snow over winter vacation. Lessons are included. Limited to 10 campers - supervised by two Camp Exploration staff members.

Since 1995, Camp Exploration has offered this wondeful winter opportunity. The name says it all - SNOWvernight Camp. The main activity is Skiing or Snowboarding. Lessons and equipment rentals are provided. After a full day in the snow, campers may enjoy the hot-tub in our cabin, or the indoor heated pool about a hundred yards away. Campers may help in the kitchen, and learn to make some enjoyable dishes, for each evening's fabulous feast. The first night is an Asian buffet of edamame, hijiki, sweet and sour, kung pao, miso soup, rice, cha soba, lo mein, and more. Campers can roll their own veggie-sushi with a wide array of fixins from which to choose. The second night is an Italian buffet of linguini, marinara sauce, salad, garlic bread, and minestrone soup. The third night is a Middle Eastern buffet of falafel, tabouli, cous cous, babaganoush, hummous, dolma, lentil soup, and more. The fourth night is our Pre-New Year's Party, with a buffet of left-overs and much added New Year's munchies - chips, salsa, guacamole, popcorn, pretzles, cookies, punch, etc. Each night, there is also a marathon of age-appropriate movies to go with the night's theme. Campers stay 2, 3, or 4 to a room in our woodsy, rustic 5 bedroom cabin, (with balcony over the lake). This is an exciting get-away for those whose families are not going away over the winter vacation.
