Lake Tahoe also has plenty of adventures tailored to the kids!

Lake Tahoe is home to an array of activities and places that were created especially with kids and families in mind. Whether your kids are 5 or 15, you'll soon see that Lake Tahoe is a great place to play.

The following is a list of things for kids to do and see in Lake Tahoe:

Kids' Camp has served Lake Tahoe visitors since 1992. Open to kids age's 6-13 years, this is a great option for the kids to get out and have some fun around Lake Tahoe. With both Day and Evening Sessions Available, this safe, fun, and educational program will allow your child to enjoy the limitless opportunities that Lake Tahoe has to offer. Kids' Camp is in no way a baby sitting service, but a well-rounded program of exciting adventures and activities. Hiking, swimming, movies, bowling and trips to the arcade, are just some of the great activities that Kids' Camp does each and everyday, year-round. Kids' Camp offers children an opportunity to experience Lake Tahoe and leave with memories that are sure to last a lifetime! Contact Kid's Camp at 775-267-6399.
