Current reservation holders

Reservation status

You are considered a current reservation holder if you have received a permanent cabin assignment. By October 2019, current reservation holders will receive a letter and green current reservation holder form from the Stanford Sierra Camp reservations department. Reservation holders must respond by December 1, 2019, indicating whether they plan to:

  1. Return to Camp this year and pay for the cabin assigned*;
  2. Request to switch weeks or cabin types; or
  3. Enter the stop-out lottery this year.

Those who have not received their letter by October 25 or are unsure of their fill-in or permanent assignment status from 2019 should contact Carrie Webb at (530) 542-5600 or email.

*Payment is due in full by March 1, 2020, for weeks 2–7, and March 15, 2020, for weeks 8–13. Invoices for the balance due will be mailed out by January 31, 2020. The $500 deposit is non-refundable upon submission of return-camper materials.

Stopping out 

The “Stop Out” program allows up to 42 current reservation holders the opportunity to take a one-year leave of absence. In turn, this opportunity provides a chance for the equivalent number of applicants on the waitlist to make a one-year visit to Camp. When assigned to these one-year vacancies, "fill-in" families do not lose their ranking on the waitlist for that year.
