We just returned from a week of family camp at Montecito in Sequoia, so our advice is pretty recent. Be prepared for as much or as little activity as you want! Our kids went full-blast, up early to meet up with their new "best friends" and we all went off to archery, tie-dye, horseback riding, guitar lessons, fencing, trampoline, water skiing---and too many more activities to list. The kids were supervised all day by amazing counselors who all seemed to be specialists at their activity, and had fun personalities. The dinners were always incredible, gourmet really, but in a buffet, relaxed style. It seemed a little odd eating these fancy meals at a casual table dressed in camp shorts & tee & flip flops, but we got used to it right away. breakfast and lunch were more basic but with lots of choices. Water pressure in the shower was low in the morning before breakfast, so I'd advise taking your shower when everyone else isn't. There was an early morning yoga class that everyone was raving about, but I don't do "early" when I'm on vacation. Evening activities were a blast! Our last night the counselors and some of the kids performed songs & skits and they ranged from sentimental to hysterically funny. Our lodge room was clean and nicely furnished and comfortable and kid-friendly. You can't beat the backdrop either, the mountain range is gorgeous, and the naturalists kept us up on the flora and fauna. Astronomer set up powerful telescopes one evening--impressive! We are definitely back next year!
