posted Jun 2, 2015, 10:31 PM by Vivek Sharma
Camp Oljato (pronounced ol-JAY-to) is located on Huntington Lake in Lakeshore, CA (Fresno County). Our camp property ranges in elevation from 7,000 to just under 8,000 feet. The camp is about 240 miles from the Pacific Skyline Council, San Mateo/Santa Clara area, about 5-6 hours driving time. Camp Oljato is accessible only by pontoon boats which run on a regular schedule during our Scout camping season. Camp Oljato has complete aquatics, nature, handicrafts, and shooting sports areas which are complemented by our dining hall and food service team. Oljato is a name of a Navajo Indian village near Monument Valley, Utah, and the name means "Starlight on the Waters.”

Boy Scout camp offers a great experience for every scout: The Basic Skills Program (Tenderfoot skills) for new incoming scouts; the Merit Badge Program for intermediate Scouts; and C.O.P.E, Climbing, advanced sailing, the mile swim and more activities for experienced Scouts. Oljato provides opportunities for Scouts to learn new skills that are not part of our Palo Alto Program, earn Merit Badges, and just have fun in a safe, Scout-led environment!
