About Friends of Camp Concord:

Friends of Camp Concord is uniquely partnered with the City of Concord and provides award-winning programs to families and children throughout the region. We offer multiple one-week sessions in South Lake Tahoe, CA, to various groups that provide campers with caring, well-trained counselors and a unique group living situation. The impact of this experience is an organized resident camp environment. This environment helps children develop their potential by teaching them new skills, encouraging them to take healthy risks, and accepting them as part of an influential group. 

Friends of Camp Concord annually scholarships over 400 kids to attend camp on a full or partial scholarship. Their mission is to sponsor camperships for underprivileged children and families, promote greater awareness and use of Camp Concord, establish and carry out projects at camp, and help fund improvements to the camp facilities.

Life at Camp

Camp Concord is a sleepaway camp nestled in the forest within walking distance of Lake Tahoe and Fallen Leaf Lake and minutes from a world-class bike path! We bring the fun with activities such as archery, canoeing and kayaking, tie-dying, hiking, and of course, beach time fun! Our staff will have fun with the campers, acting as role models as they introduce children to the wonder of the outdoors and gain an experience of a lifetime!

Pre-Screening & Planning for Youth Camp 

  • All staff must have a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of check-in (no earlier than the Friday before camp departure) and provide proof of a negative COVID test at check-in.  
    • If a home test is administered, a photo of the test strip with a timestamp included in the photo must be provided. We suggest using a second phone that shows the date, it must be included in the photo.

We seek a caring, flexible, professional RN, LPN, or EMT for a position in Camp Concords Nurse Station, working with 16 staff, and up to 120 amazing campers. This position works closely with the Youth Camp Coordinator, the camp director, and other staff.

Camp Concord and Friends of Camp Concord (FOCC) strive to create a fully inclusive culture and environment that values equality, diversity, equity, and inclusion, fostering respect for all people. We are dedicated to creating a place of comfort where campers can be themselves and connect with others.  One of the most meaningful camp experiences is bringing together a diverse community of individuals, including campers and staff from various geographic, socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.
