Crags Youth Camp and Youth Camping Program
To support the park's successful Youth Camping Program and to better serve young visitors, Lassen is developing a new youth camping facility. Crags Youth Camp is slated to open in 2016, in time for Lassen Volcanic National Park's 100th Anniversary. A wide range of youth organizations including school groups, other educational groups, and scouting organizations will be encouraged to use this desginated facility to introduce children to their national park.
The Lassen Park Foundation provides small grants to non-profit youth organizations to facilitate camping trips for at-risk or underserved youth. Grants up to $1,000 help groups cover the cost of camping supplies and transportation. Learn more about youth camping program grants at lassenparkfoundation.org.
