What is Stanford Sierra Camp?

Stanford Sierra Camp is a Stanford alumni family camp just outside South Lake Tahoe. Off-season the camp functions as the Stanford Sierra Conference Center, taking advantage of the peaceful ambiance and serene setting to offer academic, social, and corporate groups a variety of programs, featuring a relaxing natural environment, comfortable meeting rooms, delicious meals, a helpful staff, and fun outdoor activities.

Where is Stanford Sierra Camp?

Stanford Sierra Camp sits at 6,377 feet on the southern shore of sparkling Fallen Leaf Lake near Desolation Wilderness in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Brisk fresh air, glistening cobalt-blue water, the smell of pines and a twinkling night sky frame the picture for one magnificent, memorable experience for your family.
