OLJATO NEWS FLASH!
The Lake is Low but Oljato Camping is Still a Go!
This year's severe drought means all of California's lakes are at a low level and Oljato's Lake Huntington is no exception. The good news is Camp Oljato is located on a very deep lake. So, while the level is down considerably, we still have a deep enough lake to continue our water activities. And the lower water level means the lake water may be warmer this summer.
- Our water program will be business as usual.
- New activities on the exposed shoreline lake bed include archeology and mountain biking.
- Drop off and pick up areas will be changed to facilitate camp logistics. Details were discussed at the Adult Leader meeting May 10.
Camp Oljato has complete aquatics, nature, handicrafts, and shooting sports areas which are complemented by our highly-rated dining hall and food service team.
Camp Oljato (pronounced ole-JAY-toe) is located on Huntington Lake in Lakeshore, CA (Fresno County). Our camp's 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.
Oljato is a name of a Navajo Indian village near Monument Valley, Utah, and the name means "Starlight on the Waters."
