Located in Pinecrest, California, guests have been seeking adventure at Camp Sylvester for over 90 years. Founded in 1927 by Stanislaus and San Joaquin County farmers, its first incarnation was as a “pitch your tent” camp for farm groups and youth clubs. Named after Henry Sylvester, a longtime 4-H Youth Advisor, the camp still plays home to 4-H and FFA summer camps every year.
In 1946, the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau took ownership for Camp Sylvester. Since then, the Bureau has maintained the grounds and hosted educational summer camps. The group has refurbished the camp’s 26 buildings and completed an all new 3,500 square foot dining hall and commercial kitchen after a devastating storm in December 2006.
Camp Sylvester is a volunteer based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that sustains educational and recreational rental camp facilities for use by youth organizations, university, families, weddings and special events alike.
Camp Sylvester was established to provide the best possible camp experience at the lowest possible price. Call today to learn more about how our friendly staff can help make your next event or celebration a success.
