If you would like to hold a casual gathering for your group, we recommend a social hour in the Old Lodge. For a pre or post dinner gathering, the Old Lodge can accommodate about 50 people, weather permitting overflow onto the deck with its wonderful view of Fallen Leaf Lake.  If weather is cooler and your group is over 50 people, we suggest renting heaters from local rental company Eventmasters for the deck.

There are plenty of cozy chairs and couches in the Old Lodge.  Built in 1932, the room has a wonderful feel of history and ambiance. Choose from a wide selection of board games for some friendly competition among your group.

A roaring fire in the stone fireplace completes the cozy feel. We can serve your choice of delicious hors-d'oeuvres, wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages.  If you have any musicians in your group, there are two pianos in the Old Lodge.

You can also use the Old Lodge for meetings and break out sessions during the day or just as a place to relax during free time.

Guests from all groups in September and the start of October enjoyed warm daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s.  The first weekend of October, alumni from Stanford's Graduate School of Business (GSB) visited with their families to enjoy Sierra camp and our wonderful outdoors.

The center of Camp

Our staff provided organized activities for kids ages 5-12 and the GSB brought staff to run programs for the large number of toddlers in the group.

Happy kids at Camp

According to his parents, this little guy cried at drop off, then cried again at pick up because he didn't want to leave his train.

I don't want to leave my train!

With so many young guests, it's a good idea to pick your dining partners carefully.  You don't know who's been putting their hand in the water pitcher!

Caught red-handed!

With our pleasant fall weather you can boat, hike or just relax outdoors.   There are plenty of great spots around Camp to just sit back and relax.

The boat dock is a favorite with our staff. We are booking group events now for fall 2011.  Take a look at our availability calendar, then call us to plan your visit to our comfortable conference center on beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake.
