Run for Fun Overnight Camp Pinecrest is set directly in the Stanislaus National Forest located at Camp Sylvester. The camp is a short 10-minute trail walk to the lake where campers will get the opportunity to go kayaking, paddle-boating and swimming. Run for Fun Overnight Pinecrest will also feature archery, kayaking, horseback riding and all of our classic camp activities. Among our high-energy staff we have counselors who are certified in CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding. Campers will experience the fresh air, and excitement of an outdoor adventure, while creating long-lasting friendships and memories.

If you sign up for the two-week combo session, stay for the flex-day with Dave, Andy and other female and male staffers for ice cream by the lake, extra water time and a movie by the lake!
