Sugarloaf is a fine arts camp in the Sierra Nevada mountains, offering a lifetime of friends and education in music, art, drama, photography, video, and dance.

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 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, including a daily recreation period and nightly campfire program. Sugarloaf is an overnight camp that runs Sunday to Saturday for both sessions. The staff includes many El Dorado County teachers and many Sugarloaf alums.

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

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