Behind the summer camp Who We Are

Central Valley Christian Camping Association (CVCCA), formerly known as Central Valley YMCA, was incorporated in 1888 as a non-profit of California. We are the same entity that founded Lake Sequoia, along with other YMCAs in the Central Valley, in the 1920's. CVCCA returned to the camping business in 2017 to operate Camp Gaines and Camp Sequoia with many of the same programs, including Family Camp, that campers have come to love and enjoy over the many years that Lake Sequoia has been in operation.
