Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp brings a unique camp experience to the students of El Dorado County. The week-long sessions provide a supportive environment for campers to expand their fine arts skills and to experiment with new ones. The camp location, in the pines of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at an altitude of 3,600 feet, allows campers to breathe fresh air while escaping from the hustle, bustle and technology of daily living.

The camper's week focuses on their specialty major and an elective of their choice and includes a daily recreation period and nightly campfire program. Sugarloaf is an overnight camp that runs Sunday to Saturday for both of the two sessions. The staff includes many El Dorado County teachers and many Sugarloaf alumni.

To be eligible, students will need to have completed fifth grade and not yet completed twelfth grade by July of the year of camp.

Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp is administered by the El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE). Priority for enrollment is given to El Dorado County students with out-of-county applicants also eligible. Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp takes place at the beautiful Sly Park Environmental Education Center in Pollock Pines, California.
