Volcano Adventure Camp

Volcano Adventure Camp opens in August 2016 at the site of the old Crags Campground. The new youth group facility is dedicated to providing the younger generation with opportunities to learn about the outdoors and the fascinating features of the park. The camp is intended for a wide range of youth organizatiions including scouts, school groups, and other youth organizations.

Volcano Adventure Camp has two group areas, each with five tent cabins, a covered cooking and picnic pavailion, and a shared ampthitheater/campfire circle. The camp is designed to reduce the cost to youth groups who want to enjoy the outdoors by providing many basic amenities. Campers will find restrooms and shower facilities at the camp.

The Volcano Adventure Camp builds upon Lassen Volcanic National Park's Youth Camping Program. For more than 15 years the program has been providing facilities and resources for non-profit organizations that serve at-risk or underserved youth, allowing them to experience the outdoors at Lassen. The youth program is a join effort between the park and the non-profit Lassen Park Foundation.
