Gearing Up for Enchanted Hills Summer Camp

Federal Reserve Bank employees take a break from clearing the archery range at EHC to turn towards the camera and smile.

It’s mid-May! The snow that once blanketed the 311 acres of Enchanted Hills Camp has long since melted, the sun is shining bright and warm over Napa Valley, flowers and trees are in full bloom, and the first 2023 EHC Summer Camp session is just three weeks away!

Our friends at Wright Construction have been working diligently during the off-season to prepare the grounds for the hundreds of happy campers this summer. The drainage and waterflow redirection systems that were put in place prior to the winter storms kept camp safe from flooding and water damage, and the waters of Lake Lokoya are full and sparkling.

Spring brought many volunteers and visitors to camp. Last month, our friends from the Federal Reserve Bank – San Francisco spent some time at EHC clearing trails and getting them hiker-ready, as well as restoring our archery range. And, just to make sure those bows and arrows are ready for summer, a few blind and low vision students from Oakland Unified School District came up to camp to put the new and improved archery range to the test! (It’s a bullseye!)

Perhaps the most anticipated (and soon to be celebrated!) finished project of the season is our gorgeous, glistening swimming pool! After the grand opening of the beautifully designed redwood Bath House a couple years ago, we finally have a pool just as lovely to complete the aquatic oasis. So, who’s ready to dive in?

The pool at EHC is flanked by the deck and the redwood bath house.

Our Enchanted Hills Camp staff will report up to Mount Veeder soon. Changing Vision Changing Life returns to camp this June, followed by our Little Learners Family Camp, then Adult Session. July will kick off our Youth and Teen Camp sessions, followed by Music, STEM, and another Family Camp in August. It’s not too late to sign up for EHC Summer 2023. You can view the available sessions and register for camp here.

Who of you will be joining us for the best summer ever?! See you soon, campers!
