The Lake Sequoia Retreat Archive Collection consists of photographs and documents from the Lake Sequoia Retreat (LSR), a summer camp for Japanese American Christian youth which ran from 1946 until 1990. This retreat was organized after Japanese Americans returned to California after World War II. It was organized by the Central California Young People's Christian Conference and Nisei leadership and gathered young people from around Central and Northern California. The Lake Sequoia Retreat Archive is the creation of Brad Shirakawa, longtime camp attendee and photographer.
