History of Fox Mountain Adventures
Before it was Fox Mountain...
For nearly 40 years, Camp Denver C. Fox served as one of the 6th grade camps owned and operated by the San Diego County Office of Education. Camp Fox was constructed in 1974 to help meet the expanding needs of local schools offering unique outdoor experiences to local youth.
Nestled at the base of the Palomar Mountains, Camp Fox served well over 75,000 students before being closed to students due to budget cuts in 2010. We are so excited to reopen the Camp Fox site once again for kids in collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education's Department of Outdoor Education, so future campers can discover what thousands of other kids already know - Fox is a life-changing experience! Plus, every camper that comes to Fox Mountain helps support sending kids to 6th grade camp throughout the year at Cuyamaca. Help us make a difference in your child's life and the lives of other children!
Fox Mountain Adventures was founded in 2012 to help offer traditional, group-centered sleep-away camp experiences for local kids and teens. Fox Mountain Adventures was created as a camper-first program, where all camp aspects are designed to support, challenge, and impact youth in a positive, inclusive community.
In its first summer, Fox Mountain Adventures received its American Camp Association Accreditation, demonstrating it follows over 250 national health and safety standards. Camp initially served only served ages 10-15, and expanded in 2013 to high school teenagers with the popular High School Improv Camp. This summer, Fox Mountain is excited to expand its program offerings with its new Adult Summer Camp!
Fox Mountain Adventures is the sister camp to Outpost Summer Camps, a popular day camp program in Rancho Penasquitos serving over 1200 kids each summer.
