Welcome To Grizzly Creek Ranch


Grizzly Creek Ranch Camp and Conference Center is located on 1,500 beautiful acres in Plumas County, California. It’s a place where healthy development is nurtured through a unique camping adventure in a fun, accepting and supportive environment that encourages growth and accomplishment.

Since the camp opened in 2003, we’ve worked with nonprofit organizations serving diverse populations, such as students, teachers, people with special needs and children considered at risk for a variety of social and economic reasons.

In addition to each group’s own programming, participants have a wide variety of program options, including leadership development, social skills development and educational curriculum offerings in line with California and Nevada state standards. We also offer traditional camp activities, such as swimming, fishing, kayaking, archery, hiking, and arts and crafts.

Outdoor Education at Grizzly Creek Ranch

Sierra Health Foundation has partnered with Sierra Nevada Journeys to launch a state-of-the-art experiential education program at Grizzly Creek Ranch for students in Northern California and Northern Nevada. Outdoor education programs combine youth development, science education, green technology, alternative energy and environmental stewardship to promote health, well-being and an appreciation of the outdoors.

Through partnerships and collaborations, Sierra Nevada Journeys provides opportunities for students to unplug from the indoors and plug into the outdoors. By experiencing the outdoors in a new and fascinating way, participants learn practical ways to become future stewards of the natural world and be a part of tackling some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
