Camp Wolverton was a Boy Scout camp located in Sequoia National Park, California, at an elevation of 7200 feet. The Camp
was about two miles from the former Giant Forest Village and three miles from Lodgepole
Campground and Visitor’s Center.
After retiring it's formal summer camp program in
1975, Wolverton became a primitive base camp in the
shadows of beautiful red fir trees, some of which are
probably 250 to 300 years old. The older and larger
Sequoia trees are only a few miles away in Giant Forest.
There was no electricity in Camp; the only luxury being
Each campsite used by scouters and their families
contained a picnic table, water, fire barrel, trash can
and a latrine. In the camp's later years, most troops
used Wolverton as a base camp prior to leaving on a
long-term hike into the High Sierra. These troops
usually spent only a night or two in Camp. Other troops
spent an entire week at Camp and set up their own
“summer camp” program.
There were many in-Camp opportunities, short day
hikes and Park Service activities available.
Camp Wolverton staff and friends now meet for yearly
reunions at Camp Whitsett, BSA, in the southern Sierra
Nevada where they support the Wolverton-Robbins Nature
