Camp Badger is a non-profit arts and wilderness camp at Seven Circles Retreat in Badger, California.

We have a campfire on most nights, led by our drama team, Marianne McFarlin and Donna Vincent. This is wacky fun and a chance for campers to be up in front of an audience.

We have a shamrock shaped swimming pool, which is a big hit with the campers.  Three of our staff are lifeguards and two teach swimming.  Here Jeanie teaches the children how to dive (this is an old-fashioned swimming pool, built with a deep end for diving).

Our younger kids' camp also puts on an original drama production every year.  This year Marianne and Donna wrote a production about the life of the Mono Indians who originally lived in this area.  The drama team ladies and the campers are amazing - they rise to the challenge of being in a production for the parents in only three days!

Our camp for children in grades 3 - 6 emphasizes the arts. Here the campers are painting with watercolor over a design that they made by stamping black acrylic paint with the edges of posterboard bent into various curves and angles

We also have a professional clay artist, Rita Watkins, who works with the campers every year. This year the campers made owl-shaped bells. Here they are applying the glaze. Rita fires the projects in her home studio.
