www.campaugusta.org MIGHT still have a few spots. They are one of the few camps that fills 100% every year. It is incredible - partially because they train the counselors! At many summer camps the staff arrives on Friday and the kids on Saturday. At Camp Augusta, the staff has week of training clear communication and challenge by choice. It is truly lovely.

My 2 boys, now ages 12 and 15, have attended Camp Augusta for several years and both like it. It is a sleepaway camp in the Sierra foothills and all the activities you mentioned, and more, are available. However, it's not cheap and tends to fill up quickly.
