  • Relax & "unplug" from the everyday while making lifelong friends!

Types of Camp Programs

Spending time in the pool is a classic summer camp experience, but when it comes to water, there’s so much more to do. Venture out onto the open ocean on a whale-watching adventure, explore tidepools for sea critters great and small, or hang ten at your first surfing lesson. Go sea kayaking along the coast to spot otters, pelicans, and more, and wind down on the beach with the sea breezes, crashing waves, and new friends for company.

Campers can have it all with our Camp Sampler programs! Ace archery, create crafts, and dive divinely? You got it. Hike through forests, sleep under stars, swing through the redwoods, and make s’mores over a campfire with new friends? Absolutely. Try everything that makes camp so special to have a full heart and a perfect summer.

Climb, swing, and soar into summer on our high and low ropes courses! Hoist your friends into the air on the “leap of faith” and climb to the sky on the “giant’s ladder”. Soar through the redwoods on the giant swing, traverse the wobbly multi-vine, and zipline through the treetops. It’s hard not to build confidence when you and your new friends can play all day 30+ feet in the air!

Just because you’re roughing it at camp doesn’t mean there isn’t science to be explored! Learn how circuits work, connect LEDs to make your art come alive, and build robots that can draw for you in the MakerZone, study the physics of the ropes course and the math behind archery, learn how compost is made and why plants love it in our organic garden, or test the water quality to learn about the ecosystem around you.
