What To Expect

Calvin Crest is located approximately one hour north of Fresno in the heart of the Sierra National Forest. We are at an approximate elevation of 5000 feet. A loving staff will be waiting to greet you, learn your name, and get to know you at camp.

There are various housing areas, some with their own bathrooms and others with a shared bathhouse, but all bathrooms have private restrooms and showers. Each cabin is equipped with bunk beds and mattresses. We have a large indoor dining hall as well as outdoor eating areas. A swimming pool, lake, aerial adventure course, rock wall, zip-line and much, much more await you at camp.

Oakhurst is equipped with 24 hour a day medical services. In the event your child becomes ill or injured and needs medical attention, we will make every effort to contact you as soon as possible. Please note that the camper’s family insurance plan is the primary source of coverage for an accident occurring while they attend Calvin Crest.

If there is an emergency at home and you need to visit or call your child, please notify Calvin Crest, at 559.772.4040. We will do what we can to make the necessary arrangements to meet the needs of the situation.
