Camp Woolman


Located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills near the wild and scenic Yuba River and Tahoe National Forest, Camp Woolman is a place where every day is an adventure!

Campers come here to backpack, make new friends, visit beautiful places, learn about nature, be their true selves, and have a blast! Kids come back year after year but each summer we have lots of new faces as well. Our counselors are fun, friendly, and here to make sure you have a fantastic time. Here you will spend your days playing games, singing, making art, being silly, learning about peace, nature, the garden, and so much more! In addition, campers enjoy delicious and healthy vegetarian food from our wonderful kitchen!

You also get to go on trips! Trips are a highlight for many campers and are a chance to experience the outdoors in a safe, fun, and exciting way!

Other special events at camp include Talent Show Night, Jugs (the #1 Camp Woolman game of all time!), Barbeques at Mel's Pond, and Tie-dying! It doesn't matter who you are at school or where you are from, at camp the only person you have to impress is yourself!

Here at Camp Woolman, we strive to create an inclusive and welcoming environment. We are continuing to work to insure that our registration process is more gender-friendly - stay tuned for more updates!. We welcome any and all people to talk with us about their needs or concerns. Historically, we have welcomed LGBTQ people into our younger camp, teen camp, and among our CITs and staff.
