About the Camp:
Camp Silver Fir is a high adventure outpost camp that has been operated since the 1950’s by the Verdugo Hills Council, Boy Scouts of America with a Special Use Permit from the US Forest Service. The camp is in the Western Sierra Nevada Mountains (Sierra National Forest) east of Fresno, 285 miles north of Glendale off highway 168, less than 2 miles past Lakeshore, CA. The road to camp goes off the highway through the Upper Line Creek tract and is less than half mile from Huntington Lake. At an elevation of 7,200 feet, the high Sierra mountain setting with its beautiful vistas, lakes, streams, and magnificent trails, provides an excellent venue for high adventure.
As a high adventure outpost camp, Camp Silver Fir provides unique opportunities for participants in the Scouting program, and their families to experience the high Sierra wilderness terrain of the Sierra National Forest, using the Philmont model on the trail as well as family camping.
