Camp El-O-Win

We're up at Camp El-O-Win the camp of our dreams



About the Friends of Camp El-O-Win

The Friends of Camp El-O-Win was incorporated as a 501(c)3 organization in 2004 to raise funds to keep Camp El-O-Win operating.  In 2007, we purchased the camp from the local Girl Scout council so the girls of Fresno, Madera, Kings, Tulare and Kern counties could continue to have a fun quality camp experience.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Friends of Camp El-O-Win is to preserve, enhance and promote El-O-Win and its traditions as a safe place where campers discover their abilities, values and talents in a beautiful mountain setting.

Our Goals

Our goal is to offer weekend programs until the bridge is built and then resume operating resident camp programs.  Exceptional outdoor programs on an extraordinary site will be offered to girls from the Central Valley, community groups and families.  The philosophy on which the program is designed reflects our unwavering commitment to safety, fun and providing girls with a unique adventure.

Our Vision

The Friends of Camp El-O-Win will maintain Camp El-O-Win as a pristine refuge of natural beauty where campers build confidence and character while having adventures that create cherished memories and will remain such for generations to come.

The Present

Phase III: Replace, repair and rebuild areas.
