Camp High Sierra is a Boy Scouts summer camp located near the town of Long Barn, CA, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The camp site is set in a historical logging camp, allowing the Scouts to fully immerse themselves in the living history, inspired by a mountain-man themed town. 

Camp High Sierra is currently going through some fun changes! A brand new dining hall is currently under construction and we, SANDIS, are lucky enough to be out there, helping contribute our engineering and surveying services to this beautiful new building to be completed in 2019.
