Family Camp

Sutter Health
Fit Quest Family Camp is brought to you by the generosity of Sutter Health Sierra Region and eligibility to apply is based on participation in our Fit Quest Program, in Yuba, Sutter, Placer or Sacramento counties. The weekend program is life-changing and so well enjoyed.
Family Camp is a free of cost weekend with transportation provided, if needed. Families spend time together exploring the three tenets of Fit Quest in a fun, dynamic environment. Each family has their own camping cabin and all meals and snacks are provided. The three tenets are Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Mental Wellness. Single parents are welcome too, if there are more than two kid’s we strongly encourage another adult come along. Infants and toddlers are provided child care during activities. The pool is open with a lifeguard for family fun.
Family Camp sponsored by Sutter Health, is an action-packed family weekend.
The goal is to bring the family unit together and educate them on the benefits of:
  • Choosing healthy meals and snacks as a family
  • Prioritizing family fun and fitness (through physical activity)
  • Encouraging self-confidence and positive body image
