Founders and Directors Daryl Moss, Jeff Robinson, and Nathalie Moss have over 80 years of combined camp and teaching experience and together have worked with thousands of families at the top summer camp in California providing a diverse camp program in a safe environment. What sets Canyon Creek apart from other camps is not only our intelligent, intentional programming that maximizes your camp experience, but also our hands-on approach to camp - when your kids are at Canyon Creek, our Founders and Directors are up and at 'em every morning at breakfast, saying goodnight to campers in their cabins at night, and all things in-between!
