Accredited by the American Camp Association, Camp Ronald McDonald � at Eagle Lake is a fully accessible residential summer camp for children who are "at-risk" with a variety of special medical needs, economic hardship and/or emotional, developmental or physical disabilities. Every summer we collaborate with other non-profit groups to bring a week of traditional camping activities such as arts & crafts, hikes, fishing, canoeing, sports, swimming, talent show and campfires. Our campers typically have challenges that may normally hinder their ability to experience the joys of nature and camp; however, this is not an issue at Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake. Here all barriers- physical and mental, are removed.

The mission of Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake is to provide confidence-building experiences and programs that are designed to support each camper's individuality through the challenges of outdoor group living and teamwork in a supportive environment. Our totally accessible facility sits on 35 acres on the shores of beautiful Eagle Lake in the middle of Lassen National Forest. Our site boasts 9 cabins (sleeping 13 each), two shower houses, dining hall, amphitheater, campfire pit, beach volleyball courts, fully accessible dock and water front, basketball courts and a grassy playing field. In addition to our beautiful layout and environment, we offer an array of programs adapted to meet the individual needs of each camper. We staff experienced and well trained specialists in the fields of drama, arts & crafts, outdoor education, nutrition education, sports and waterfront activities.
