Pack 1776 Summer Camping – Yosemite

Pack 1776 Families,

Come join us for some summer camping in Yosemite National Park!!

Tuolumne Meadows, at an elevation of 8,600 feet, is the largest sub-alpine meadow in the Sierra Nevada. The Tuolumne Meadows area is graced by the winding Tuolumne River and surrounded by majestic peaks and domes. Spectacular in summer, the higher meadows abound with wildflowers, animal wildlife, and views of the soaring mountain ranges. There will be incredible hiking, fishing (bring your own pole) and ranger activities on top of the usual pack camping activities.

The campground has real bathrooms but no showers and the average high temperature in August is 77° and the average low is 48°.

The cost is minimal - $15 per person for each night staying (i.e. 1 Adult, 1 scout staying two nights = $60) which covers the site, food, and some activities, belt loops and patches. If you decide to stay less than the two nights, please indicate in the comments which night you are staying.

We also encourage all families to bring their own reusable dining sets for meal times to reduce our trash and our Pack footprint.

Payment MUST be received BY July 12 to secure your spots! This is to allow for proper planning and selection of helpers. No excuses please. A standard policy of No Refunds applies. We were only able to get one group site for two nights this year so we are limited to amaximum of 30 campers and parking for 5 vehicles so get your payment in early to reserve your spot.

Please send (or drop off) checks payable to PACK 1776 (see Scout track for my address).

Please feel free to contact me with questions via email.
