Camp Wawona consists of approximately 30 acres (120,000 m2) of deeded land inside Yosemite National Park in the township of Wawona, California in the United States. The focus of Camp Wawona is summer camp for kids, conference convocations, church retreats, family reunions or a personal quiet getaway in nature. The camp offers an opportunity for outdoor recreation and learning.


The land was first purchased by individuals who were members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church before Wawona was annexed by the National Park Service. The individuals later gave the land to the Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists who turned it into a summer camp. Camp Wawona has been in business since 1929.
