General Notes About Camps in the State of California
While much of the state experiences a temperate climate -- providing generally favorable conditions for camps to operate in the summer -- the climate in California varies tremendously from extremely hot desert temperatures in Death Valley to the much colder mountainous peaks of Yosemite National Park.
Summer programs which focus on or encounter wildlife will have a wide array of animals and plant life to observe: bears, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, ancient redwoods, douglas fir, wild mountain flowers, Joshua trees, cacti and other desert species to name a few.
