About Our Camp

The Hye Camp program operates at Archbishop Vatche Hovsepian Camp which is a 160-acre property located in Dunlap, California about 35 miles east of Fresno. It is within five miles of the entrance to Kings Canyon and the Sequoia National Park at an elevation of 4,400 feet. The property offers a unique, serene retreat setting, perfect for reflection and fellowship.

During the summer, the Diocese hosts 4 weeks of summer camp aka Hye Camp. Make sure to visit our sections on Campers and on Staff to learn details about the camp program. During the remainder of the year, the facility is used by various diocesan organizations for meetings, retreats and conferences. The camp is also available to rent by outside groups throughout the year, and interested parties should contact the camp through our contact page.
