COVID-19

Stanford Sierra Programs continue to be significantly impacted by COVID-19. The health and safety of our staff and guests remains our top priority, so there may be changes to our 2021 Camp and Conference Center operations as we work to follow Stanford University guidelines. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times. 

April 16–18, 2021

Stanford Sierra Camp is home to generations of Stanford tradition, Sierra Nevada splendor and fun family activities—and as a member of Stanford faculty/staff, you have the opportunity to bring your loved ones along to experience Sierra Camp for themselves during Faculty/Staff Weekend.

Outdoor activities

Enjoy a variety of both active and leisurely outdoor activities against the scenic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada. Relax with a good book on a lakeside lounge chair, take a guided hike into Desolation Wilderness, sail across Fallen Leaf Lake, or join in on sports like tennis, volleyball or basketball.
