What makes us different?



Healthy (mostly vegetarian, organic, and grown on site) yummy food!

Located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills near the scenic Yuba River and Tahoe National Forest, Camp Woolman is a Quaker summer camp that embodies values of community, respect for nature, peace, and simple fun. Kids come to learn, play, make friends, and live in an accepting community where they can truly be themselves. In-camp days include time for Meeting for Worship, lots of games, some community chores, choice activities or workshops, a little relaxation time, and lots of singing. In-camp activities include cooperative games, sports, arts and crafts, nature, swimming, gardening, singing, campfires, and whatever else our staff can come up with. We run two camps – Wombat Camp (ages 9-14) and Teen Leadership Camp (ages 15-16). Each week of Wombat Camp includes a 3-day backpacking and camping trip to nearby rivers, mountains and lakes. Teen Leadership Camp is divided into 3 sessions that range from beginner to advanced backing, and include backpacking trips anywhere from 3 to 10 days long.

Teen Leadership Camp extends the camp experience into longer trips, age-appropriate activities and leadership skill building.
