Camp Mather is a family camp in the Yosemite Valley of California. It is open almost all summer long. While the sound of a “family camp” may be unattractive to most teenagers, Mather is actually extremely fun. One usually spends little to no time actually with their parents (one doesn't even have to go with their parents), and instead spends the week bicycling throughout the camp (if you brought one) with one’s friends, playing in the lake, doing frisbee, soccer, bocce ball or beach volleyball on the lake lawn, baseball and all of the above on the baseball field and adjacent lawn, ping-pong, badminton, or basketball anywhere else, chilling out by the General Store, and pretty much just about anything imaginable (like hitting some dank bud that you brought up there with some friends—it’s a real chill atmosphere, perfect for toking up. Just don’t let the Camp Staff catch you). Also, all three meals are served at the mess hall (the foods real good, too), and there are tons of other activities to do too, like archery, horse-back riding, etc. But despite everything, it’s still pretty loose, and not yuppie-ish at all (as some people might think). All in all, its one of the most fun places to stay at, as long as you have some friends with you and a bike.
"Man, I'm so glad I'm gonna chill up at Mather this summer. Mather kicks Tawonga's ass!"
Mather = Camp Mather
The correct pronunciation is "May-ther" but some people do it "Mah-ther" and I'm sure that it's wrong.
