Registration packets are available at the Watershed Center Office located at 98 Clinic Ave in Hayfork.

We work hard to keep this a free program for our youth; however, there are many expenses– it costs more than $600 per camper to plan and run camp: from the higher-cost camp activities like whitewater rafting, to the CPR and First Aid training of all camp staff, the expenses add up. All financial contributions or material donations- great or small- from families are deeply appreciated. Financial contributions can be made with cash or a check and sent or turned in at The Watershed Center. No camper is ever turned away for lack of funds.

About Indian Valley Summer Camp

Indian Valley Summer Camp (IVSC) is a fun and educational outdoor summer camp designed to invest in the next generation and promote land stewardship and community investment. Serving youth ages 8-15, IVSC is offered at for free to Trinity County youth, providing many with unique opportunities that would otherwise not be available to them.

In today’s hyper-digital world it is more important than ever to re-connect and re-ground our children by offering fun and educational experiences that connect them to nature and teach them it’s essential value. Our IVSC program is designed to provide this experience while developing life-long skills and planting the seeds for future career development. Campers experience the outdoors through a variety of educational activities that teach them about forestry, wildlife, and much more. Camp also offers a suite of empowering activities such as horseback riding, ropes courses, rafting, and backpacking. The IVSC program includes a robust group of volunteer speakers from natural resource professions, local schools, and cultural programs that teach and engage youth in camp activities exposing them to careers, offering mentorship and role modeling, and educating them about the vital role of land stewardship.
