Host your Event at Woolman

Let Woolman host your event! We are located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in northern California, a 90-minute drive from Sacramento and a 15-minute drive from the historic Gold Country towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City. Our campus offers 236 acres of meadows, woods, streams and ponds for our guests to enjoy. Groups of 5-85 persons can easily be accommodated overnight in a variety of spaces on our grounds, and an additional 50 people can camp on central campus. 

Woolman hosts retreats, workshops, conferences, and meetings for many different groups. Whether you are a non-profit organization or community group, a yoga studio or meditation center, a church or Quaker meeting, we would be happy to host you!
