What we do not have

Now year round camping is available at Camp Chawanakee with the
addition of 11 new log cabins. Your Scout unit or community group
can spend a weekend or more on beautiful Shaver Lake located at the
5,200 ft elevation level in the central Sierra. Camp is about 1 hour
east of Fresno, CA following Route 168 to Shaver Lake Village. Once
at Shaver Lake Village, turn right onto Dinkey Creek Road and
proceed about 1.5 miles to the Camp entrance road on your left. Take
this road 1.5 miles to Camp Chawanakee. Winter conditions do vary.
Some weekends the road will be passable with SUVs, cars, etc. Other
weekends will require snow machines, cross country skies, snowshoes
or hiking. Refunds are available for those who cannot make it into
Camp due to weather conditions.

Camp Host/Camp Master Program

The camp office will be used as camp host/camp master housing during
most weekends outside of the summer camp season. The camp host will
be there to welcome your group and help you with locating your cabin
and giving you support and instructions. Camp hosts are trained and
experienced Scouting volunteers. During your stay at camp, some camp
hosts may offer program opportunities for your group – if you wish.
Some camp hosts may have special skills and hobbies to share with
your youth. Program opportunities such as shooting sports, cooking,
outdoor education, climbing, COPE, fishing, crafts, Scout skills and
various merit badges may be available. In all cases the current
Guide to Safe Scouting will be followed to determine activity
guidelines and participation.
