History

The land was first purchased by individuals who were members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church before Wawona was annexed by the National Park Service. The individuals later gave the land to the Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists who turned it into a summer camp. Camp Wawona has been in business since 1929.
