Welcome to Camp Hi-Sierra!
Camp Hi-Sierra is the privately owned property of the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council and is located at an elevation of 5000 ft. within the Stanislaus National Forest.
The North Fork of the Tuolumne River flows through camp and provides an endlessly enjoyable soundtrack. The property has a rich heritage: summer dwelling sites for Miwok Indians, early homesteads, and the Cold Springs sawmill site for the Standard Lumber Company. The Council purchased the camp’s one hundred acres in 1949 for only $10.00, from Edward Jenness, who owned more than five thousand acres along with the old Mono Toll Road just above camp along the present Highway 108. The first regular camping season, though small, was in 1949. From that summer to the present, Camp Hi-Sierra has proudly passed on the common thread of purpose and method that runs through every part of the Scout camping program to those first campers’ staff and their children.
