Camp Fees

A $50 deposit for each camp reserves your spot. This deposit goes toward your camp fees and is non-refundable. However, it may be transferred to a different week or camp. Additional fees vary by camp but always include all activities and programming as well as three yummy vegetarian meals a day. Purchases at the camp store, theme t-shirt, souvenir video and photo are not included. 

Cancelation Policy: We work hard to make sure we have enough lodging, supplies and staff for each camper. Because of the expenses involved to do this, we cannot offer a full refund if your camper should need to leave their camp session early. We will, however, be able to offer a partial refund of 75% if they leave on Monday, 50% on Tuesday and 25% on Wednesday.

Campership Fund

Because kids come first at camp, we believe that no child should be turned away because of finances. Through generous support from friends and parents, a campership fund is available to help families with financial needs. For campership fund assistance call early since funds are limited. To contribute, you can use the application form or contact Craig Heinrich, our camp Director.

Camp Store

Our camp store offers souvenirs, t-shirts, sweatshirts, ice cream and other great stuff. We encourage campers to keep any money they bring to camp in the “camp bank” for safety reasons. Money not spent is returned before check out.


Registration is from 2:30-5:30 p.m. on Sundays. Coming early? While that’s okay, we are not set up to provide early registrations. We spend our time between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. preparing for the next week. Please plan to be here until your child is registered at 2:30 p.m. Your camper’s first meal here is Sunday supper and their last meal here is the next Sunday breakfast. (For campers staying more than one week, please see the “Extended Camper” and “Discounts” sections below.)

Pick up

Pick up is from 9-10 a.m. on Sundays. If you can’t pick up your child by 10 a.m., we will provide child care for an additional $10 per hour. To ensure your child’s safety, campers are only allowed to leave after we verify that the photo ID of the adult picking them up matches your instructions to us.


Early Bird Discounts: For kids’ camps, if your application is posted online or postmarked by May 15 and includes the $50 deposit, you may take $25 off for each camp. If by April 14, take off $50 for each camp. Extended Camper Discount: Campers staying longer than one week will get a $20 discount for each week beyond the first one. Online Discount: Complete your application online and take $5 off your camp fees.

Extended Camper

Staying two or more weeks? We’ve got you covered. Campers staying over will be supervised during the transition on Sunday, eat a tasty lunch and have their laundry done so they can start the next week fresh. (It helps amazingly to have all their clothes marked.)

health and Medical Care

A registered nurse is on duty at camp 24 hours a day. Each of our specialty camps also have certified first aid staff or a registered nurse at all times. In addition, staff members hold current CPR and first aid certification.


Kids love letters from home. If you would like to send a letter or care package to you camper you can address them the address below. Be sure to include your camper’s name and what camp they are attending. 

PO Box 400
Grizzly Flats, CA

You can also send your camper emails by sending them to camper@leonimeadows.org. In the subject line put your camper’s name, camp they are attending, and cabin.


Living with Respect

Our expectations for campers are simple: respect yourself, respect others and respect your environment. We have zero tolerance for bullying (any type of physical aggression) and will send that child home immediately.


We sometimes photograph or record video and/or audio of campers and visitors for promotional purposes. Your presence at Leoni Meadows Camp grants permission for our use of these images and recordings.


Leoni Meadows Camp is owned and operated by the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Leoni Meadows has been offering Christian camping since 1978. Camp fees are used only for daily operational expenses with capital improvement projects being funded by generous supporters and the Northern California Conference.
