Sierra Camp Weekend Retreat

Sierra Camp

We had a lovely weekend at Fallen Leaf Lake October 1-4. Stay tuned for information about future plans.

Stanford GSB alumni are invited to become part of a Stanford tradition that university alumni and their families have enjoyed for more than 50 years.

Just south of Lake Tahoe, Stanford’s exclusive Sierra Camp will designate one autumn weekend to Stanford GSB alumni, friends, and family for a relaxing, nature-filled getaway!

The area’s beauty and adventure attract so many that its summer camp program has been sold out every year since 1988, leaving hundreds of alumni on a waiting list. You have a rare opportunity to see firsthand what all the fuss is about every fall.

Lakefront Lodge & Cabins

The main lodge holds the dining room, camp store, and common rooms, not to mention breathtaking lakeside views. Each family gets a comfortable cabin or lodge room with private bath.

For the Kids

Children will enjoy creative, educational, and fun-filled programs for ages 6-13. And once again, we will have “Pam‘s Camp” for 3- to 5-year-olds.* A separate play group is also planned at the “munchkin patch.”

*Children must be at least 3 years old AND toilet trained (no diapers) in order to attend “Pam’s Camp.”
