Summer Retreat at Pinecrest Lake 2018

Our 3nd annual Summer Retreat takes place at beautiful Camp Sylvester near Pinecrest Lake in the mountains of Central California. Continuing the tradition of the French Meadows Macrobiotic Summer Camp for the 49th year in a row.

Nestled between Pinecrest Lake and the slopes of Dodge Ridge ski resort, Camp Sylvester in Pinecrest, California is an ideal setting for family vacations. With updated cabins and recreation halls sprawling over nearly ten acres of the Stanislaus National Forest, Camp Sylvester provides the fresh air, green pines and excitement of an outdoor adventure with all of the comforts of a rustic resort.

The picturesque, natural surroundings are an ideal setting to go "on retreat" and provide a unique environment in which to relax, study, and play.
