History and Background
Camp Augusta is a non-profit 501(c)(3) summer camp nestled in the mountains near Nevada City, California. Established in 1931, we strive to create above-and-beyond experiences for campers and facilitate the experiences that help them grow. This growth, while often difficult to describe, often revolves around happiness, play, novelty, skill-building, comfort in hardship, and connection.
Our Wilderness Program started out small more than a decade ago with just a few custom trips each year. The program has now blossomed into its own show, supporting several different trip types, such as backpacking, horse packing, rafting, climbing, and mountain biking, in various locations around Northern California. We focus on providing backcountry adventures that facilitate outdoor skill building as well as
interpersonal and intrapersonal connection.
