Parents and Campers

Your son is in for what could be the best two weeks of his life. He will be placed in a group of 6 or 7 other boys his age and cared for by our counselors. We have a full range of activities including sports, horseback riding, archery, crafts, nature, fishing, ropes/initiative course and a fabulous five-day backpack trip into the spectacular Golden Trout Wilderness area. Each night a campfire is held and the last full day culminates in our own very exciting Olympic Games. It is fast paced and great fun.



Camp is all about fun, meeting new people, participating in great activities, challenging yourself and learning more about who you are in the process. This is an experience of a lifetime. You will not forget for the rest of your life.

Come and join in on the adventure! You will do things you never thought you could and when you get home you will be a different person! All that in just less than two weeks.



The R.M. Pyles Boys Camp operates in partnership with Sequoia National Forest on a non-discriminatory basis. Pyles Boys Camp is located at 5,500’ elevation near Giant Sequoia National Monument approximately 60 miles from Porterville and 100 miles northeast of Bakersfield. There is no fee to attend our camp.

Once your son is committed to coming to camp, we will send you forms to complete including a health form to be filled out by a physician. You will receive transportation and clothing information as your date for camp gets closer.

*Campers must be referred by one of our many selection agencies. If you are interested in signing up a child, and have not been referred, please call our office at 661-294-1394 for information on how to sign up.
