Site Rental & Facility

Why Camp Augusta?
Camp Augusta is an affordable meeting place where participants are surrounded by the Sierra mountains’ natural beauty. Group needs, facility rentals, and optional meal service are tailored to meet individual needs. Corporate functions, retreats, picnics, educational programs and reunions are all welcome, granted that they fall within the non-profits mission of contributing meaningfully to the development of youth and mentors. We can accommodate groups from 10 to 180 in a serene and natural environment.

We enjoy hosting…

  • Family & alumni reunions
  • Student expeditions
  • Corporate retreats, birthdays & anniversaries
  • Church and company picnics

Situated one hour northeast of Sacramento in Nevada County’s lush pine forest, Camp Augusta gives you the feeling of comfort.
