Optimist Club of Sacramento Camp Ross Relles Project
In 1959, members of the long-standing Northern California Optimist Club scouted several parcels of land around the historic mining town of North Bloomfield, California, just north of Nevada City. Their intent was to establish a camp for underprivileged and handicapped children. The Camp was named in honor of Optimist Ross Relles.
The Camp has undergone continuous operation, growth and improvement and Optimists continue to support the camp with annual work parties, member contributions and, of course, The All-Star football game as the main contributor.
