Camp St. Sava is an Orthodox Christian camp operated at the Saint Sava Mission and Retreat Center in the Sierra Foothills of Jackson CA.
173 acres were purchased in 1961. The camp buildings, the main hall, dormitories and pool were constructed in 1961/1962. The KSS Hall was added in 1968.
In 1998 63 acres were sold to the Sutter Medical Group and they built the Sutter Amador Hospital adjacent to the Mission property, providing 24-hour emergency outpatient and inpatient care.
8 Dormitory rooms accommodate 14 to campers. Maximum camper capacity is 110.
The main hall can seat up to 175 for meals and has a stage & sound system.
The commercial kitchen is equipped with new ranges, ovens, a griddle, a tilt-braiser, a reach-in freezer, a large walk-in refrigerator and modern automatic dishwasher.
The facility has a nearly Olympic size swimming pool which can be used from June through September. It also has a basketball court, baseball fields, and a sand volleyball court. A small playground exists with slides and a jungle gym for younger children.
The historic town of Jackson offers shopping, antique hunting, restaurants and museums dedicated to the California Gold Rush days. Part of the St. Sava Mission property was once the site of two gold mines, the Ziele and Blue Jacket. The Sierra Foothills offer recreational activities including natural caves and caverns, Indian camp sites, lakes, fishing and, of course, gold panning in the rivers and streams. Camp St. Sava is located just two hours from South Lake Tahoe.
