Tom Sawyer Camps

Tom Sawyer Camps is a summer day camp in the Pasadena area for girls and boys ages 3-14. Since 1926, we have been committed to the idea that every child should experience carefree, constructive outdoor activities. The day is split between scheduled activities where campers are taught swimming, horseback riding, archery and, for our Middle School campers, rock wall climbing, high ropes, and windsurfing. During free time, groups create and search for forts in "the desert", build damns in the mud river, and compete in all manner of imaginative quests and challenges.
