Another Summer in the Mountains

Camp Hess Kramer and Gindling Hilltop Camp (clap clap) are so excited to be returning to Buckhorn Camp in Idyllwild for Summer 2022! This past summer in the mountains was unforgettable. It filled us with joy to see kids who had been cooped up inside for many long months finally get the chance to run around in the grass, climb the rock wall, tie-dye t-shirts, shoot a bullseye, and so much more. At the end of the summer, parents shared with us that they were not just happy to have their children at home again, but overjoyed that their time at camp had restored their spirits and returned them to their full lively and dynamic selves. As we spent the summer on this campground in the fresh mountain air with stunning tall trees and endless opportunities to engage with the natural world, we knew that we wanted to return to this special place in future years.

We are immensely grateful for our ongoing partnership with Buckhorn Camp, and we are grateful for the time we have to prepare the site to fit our community’s needs even better than before. This is the first time since the fires in 2018 that we will be returning to the same site, and we are excited that we have the chance to use our experience from this year to make Summer 2022 our best summer yet!

We know that there’s a child in your life who deserves the life-changing experience of going to camp, so head to and register today!
