Summer Programs

The programs that are held during the summer for visitors, campers, and locals alike provide a variety of experiences as they learn about and explore the Park.  None of these programs would be possible without the support of Calaveras Big Trees Association.

Some of these programs include:

Junior Ranger Programs: These programs are designed for 7-12 year old children. This program usually lasts an hour and the subjects for the programs are different every day.

Jr. Cubs: These programs are designed for 3-6 year old children with an adult. This program usually lasts an hour and the subjects for the programs are different every day.

North Grove Guided Tours: This gentle hike lasts from 1½  to 2 hours.  The tour guide will lead you on an exploration of the North Grove and provide insight you might not get on your own.

Creek Critters: This program meets at Beaver Creek Picnic Area where participants will learn all about what goes on in the creek.

Puppet Shows: These programs are put on by volunteer puppeteers for the enjoyment of all.

Campfire Programs: These programs are presented by Park Aides, Interns and volunteers and involve different subjects such as stargazing, storytelling, singing and “hug a tree” which is put on by Search and Rescue.
