Welcome to When the Bell Rings, a blog about Camp Stevens. Camp Stevens is a 256-acre property in Julian, California that offers summer camp, retreats, outdoor education, garden, and ropes course programs. The camp’s been around since 1952, and we have a far-flung community of former campers, counselors, staff, volunteers, parents, and retreat attendees that we’re always looking to stay connected with. Our goal on When the Bell Rings is to provide an inside look on what’s going on at Camp Stevens throughout the year. We’ll share pictures, recipes and stories, and ask you to share your memories and thoughts as well. It’s not quite a boat trip in Baja, but the blog should be a Camp Stevens adventure all its own. So, step into the single-layer circle and come along with us!
