Camp Highlander

The award-winning year-round Camp Highlander is a camp experience like no other. Camp Highlander offers indoor and outdoor traditional camp activities, leadership, STEM and sports which focus on essential skill development, learning and fun. At Camp Highlander we celebrate play and fun learning. We provide a broad academic focus combining engaging activities with STEM elements including Astronomy, Neuroscience and Earth Sciences. Through our collaboration with NASA and its GLOBE program we strive to support our youth on a journey to becoming citizen scientists. Our highly captivating camps share a common philosophy of encouraging good choices and fostering a healthy lifestyle among the youth we serve. Furthermore, through our mission, we aim to promote diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as a love for the outdoors and nature. The important developmental skills that are taught include teamwork, leadership, adaptability, flexibility, conflict resolution, brainstorming, attention-span, resilience and confidence, to name just a few. These essential skills are taught through a framework of climbing, swimming, hiking, camp games, drama, team play, leadership, High Rope Challenge Course, dance, STEM and so much more.

UPDATE: We are proud to share that UC Riverside's Neuroscience Outreach Team was awarded the 2022 Outstanding Commitment to Higher Education Outreach Award for their work on Brain Awareness Day and Camp Highlander. For more information on our collaboration, please visit the Inside UCR news article.

“The camp was just as great as last time for my kids. I know it made a big impact in my two nieces who are normally very shy and closed in. My youngest niece came home and said I made a friend Auntie. So thank you. They also learned a lot of teambuilding.”
