Welcome to Camp!
60th Anniversary Year!
For 60 years, Camp Saint Sava has been the summer gathering place for Serbian Orthodox families and children in Western America. Thousands have spent memorable weeks in Jackson, California, where lasting friendships have been formed. This year's summer camp gives us the opportunity to not just reaffirm our Christian faith and unique cultural heritage, but also to learn life lessons and Christian values from those who came before us who built the Camp and maintained it for 60 years.
