Sierra Nevada Journeys has you covered with the expansion of Family Camp.
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
"You mean I can relive summer sleepover camp WITH my kids? You mean I could get in that camping trip I promised them without having to pitch a tent or cook on a camp stove? Sign. Me. Up.” *Lynnette Bellin
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Sierra Nevada Journeys, a STEM education nonprofit, is making the best of its situation by opening Grizzly Creek Ranch for families to get outdoors and go camping.

With the travel restrictions due to COVID-19, many families are staying close to home and have turned to camping as an alternative to other types of vacation. Additionally, the RV dealerships are seeing an increase in sales by 30 percent over last year. With this influx of new campers and several months of closed campgrounds this past spring, it has been challenging to secure a camping reservation for this season.
