"Our daughter was looking for an "all dance" overnight camp. She wanted to take all types of dance and be a part of a small, caring community of dancers. She found that at ADTC. It was like "finding home" for her. We are so incredibly delighted."

ADTC SIERRA MOUNTAINS: SQUAW VALLEY, CALIFORNIA SUMMER CAMPS
Adventure, sun & summer fun await you in California! Spend a week or two (or more!) dancing and having a blast with your new friends at the Squaw Valley Academy in the magnificent Sierra Nevadas near Lake Tahoe.
ULTIMATE SIERRA MOUNTAINS DANCE CAMP
Come to the Lake Tahoe Region in Northern California for American Dance Training Camps' ULTIMATE Sierra Mountains Dance Camp at Squaw Valley USA, a year-round destination resort on the magnificent slopes of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The resort, perhaps best known for its world class skiing and snowboarding, and for being the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, is located 10 miles from Tahoe City and the historic town of Truckee, CA. Our Sierra Mountains overnight dance camp home is the Squaw Valley Academy, a boarding school just one mile from Squaw Valley resort's base area packed with shops, restaurants, activities and fun, and the views simply take your breath away.
At SVA, ADTC campers stay in double-occupancy log cabin-esque dorms with shared bathrooms. ADTC staff are housed in rooms on each floor, providing 24-hour supervision & support. Amenities include community lounges (for watching TV, doing arts & crafts and hanging out), laundry facilities, and a Dance Canteen for basic supplies, snacks, ADTC apparel & souvenirs.
Campers are assigned to rooms by age or by roommate request. The Squaw Valley Academy also provides an awesome cafeteria with healthy, often organic meals and snacks. SVA is an ideal location for summer fun - click here for a tour of the facilities!
In addition to core dance classes in contemporary, hip hop & jazz (styles of jazz vary and may include lyrical, modern or Broadway), dancers at our ULTIMATE Sierra Mountains dance camp will choose between ballet, tap or world dance for their core elective dance discipline. Campers take four dance classes per day, and at week's end they get to show off their new moves in a big Friday night performance for family, friends and fellow campers. Day camp option is available at all overnight dance camp locations.
And at ADTC ULTIMATE Sierra Mountains you can enjoy AWESOME ACTIVITIES & EXTRAS like horseback riding; kayaking on Lake Tahoe at sunset; a Cable Car ride to High Camp for ice skating & swimming; mini golf, a ropes course, rock wall & sky jump trampolines in the Village; a trip to King's Beach & more! Additional fees & waivers will be detailed in the Registered Camper's Handbook sent to confirmed campers in March. Fees will include any necessary transportation, professional guides (where applicable) & supervision by ADTC staff certified in First Aid & CPR. Optional field trips generally take place during afternoon free time with the exception of a few evening offerings. Note that there always are included (fee-free) activity options available to campers who do not participate in the optional field trips & additional fee activities. Campers planning to participate in most of our field trips & additional fee activities can save money by purchasing our "Unlimited Activities Pass". Note: The "Unlimited Activities Pass" is an exclusive one-time offer available only when registering - don't miss out!
Come join us for one week, two weeks, or all four - we hope to see you this summer!
