New Woolman Day Camp in Summer 2021

As we work with Nevada County to understand what kinds of programs we can offer this summer we have a mixed bag of good news, sad news, and hopeful news. The best way to provide quality programs with confidence is to focus on what we know we can do during the midst of the challenges we face, while planning to return to more traditional programming in the future.

We want to offer programs that are less likely to be cancelled by Covid, and also are safely operable away from the damage from the Jones Fire. Sadly, this means we cannot offer the traditional Wombat Camp and Teen Leadership Camp this year. We know those programs have changed many lives. We have high hopes that we will be able to offer them again Summer 2022 and we are already planning for the return of awesome overnight camp programs.

This summer we will offer Woolman Day Camp, a new program full of fun and exploration outdoors and a chance to meet and make new friends. Each session will run for five days from morning to evening. Campers will be part of a small group with other kids in their age bracket, led by a staff member that will organize activities.

For families who live further away but would still like their child to attend camp, we can offer turning camp into a family vacation! We have A-Frame Cabins on-site available for rental and there are other local lodging options. Kids can be dropped off at camp while single parents explore the beautiful South Yuba River and Sierra Nevada foothills.

We are developing other summer and fall programming for adults and families as Covid restrictions begin to be lifted. Some of these programs include family camp, weekend workshops, and an alumni weekend. Details about these programs will be announced as they are ready so keep an eye on your inbox and on our website!
