BHP JR. AT PLACERVILLE CAMP
Our BHP Jr. Performing Arts Camps are held at Placerville Camp and Retreat Center. This incredible facility is nestled on 12 acres of the Black Hills overlooking Rapid Creek with hiking trails and camp activities like scooters games, finger rockets, a climbing wall and more to spice up the summer days.
It has been providing a place of retreat for more than 100 years.
