Mammoth is a world-class outdoor recreation destination for a reason, and Mammoth adventure campers get to experience it all - from mountain biking, rock climbing and paddle boarding to stargazing, talent shows and games of glow-in-the-dark frisbee. Click the button below to see the variety of activities available to your camper.
Along with expert instruction, our two beginner trails and a dedicated beginner chair lift in the Discovery Zone make it easy for new bikers to enjoy the Bike Park. Our Pioneer Practice Loop is designed specifically to help new riders improve their riding regardless of skill level or experience. More advanced riders will progress to other areas of the Bike Park.
Mountain Horseback Adventure
After receiving expert riding instruction from professional cowboys, campers hit the trail for a true horseback adventure through the mountains with their guides. Check out Mammoth Lakes Pack Outfit for more information.
Mammoth Mountain’s rock climbing wall introduces campers to climbing in a safe, “no fall” environment. They learn about climbing strategy, roping, and attempt progressively challenging routes up the rock face. Campers can also test their skills on real rock faces at Horshoe Slabs in the Lakes Basin. These preset "sport climbs" also provide an expertly roped, "no fall" environment - perfect for climbers of all ages and skill levels.
Campers cast their lines into the crystal clear
waters of the Mammoth Lakes Basin and learn how to fish in some of the
best fishing holes in the country.
Mammoth Lakes is home to hundreds of miles of stunning side and backcountry trails. Whether on bikes or on foot, Mammoth adventure campers will find themselves out on the trail daily.
One afternoon each session, all campers go to Reds Lake to set up
camp, pitch tents, and sleep under the stars on an overnight camping
adventure. Food, fire, games, and ghost stories are all part of this
traditional camping experience.
During their overnight campout at Reds Lake, all campers have the opportunity to learn how to paddle board in clear blue mountain water. This is a favorite activity of many campers!
Nothing beats swimming in mountain lakes and streams, and Mammoth campers have multiple opportunities during the week to cool off and play at our favorite mountain swimming holes.
Zip Line & Bungee Trampoline
Campers take the ride of their lives on our 306-foot long zip line, then come in for a soft landing as they sail nearly 25 feet in the air on this safe and exhilarating apparatus. Our multi-station bungee trampoline is also a big hit with campers, safely allowing kids of all ages to bounce nearly 25 feet in the air to flip and perform gravity defying stunts.
Devils Postpile National Monument and the amazing 100 foot Rainbow Falls are a mere 10 minute drive from the Mammoth Adventure Center. Trips to see these natural marvels, gondola rides to the Eleven53 Interpretive Center at the summit of Mammoth Mountain, and short trips to other local attractions are possible elective activities during each camp session, depending on the interest of individual campers.
