Summer Camp - Ages 9-14: Camp Woolman Campers may stay for as many weeks as they desire by combining multiple sessions. The cost is $875 for a single week of camp and $1450 for two weeks (see additional discounts below). If campers do wish to choose multiple weeks, we recommend Session 1 or 4, as they are our two-week sessions. Campers coming for multiple weeks later in the summer will have the option to spend the middle weekend with their family or stay at camp during the session changeover.
Session 1 (two weeks): June 24-July 7
Session 2: (one week): July 8 - July 14
Session 3: (one week): July 15-July 21
Session 4: two weeks): July 22-August 4
Teen Leadership Camp (TLC) - Ages 15-16: Teen Leadership Camp tuition is $1450 for two-week camps.
Session 1 (two weeks): June 24-July 7: BASIC HIKING SESSION. Teens participating in this program are strongly recommended to have prior athletic or hiking experience and should expect to be somewhat challenged by the physically-intensive nature of the program.
Session 2: (two weeks): July 8 - July 21: FELLOWSHIP SESSION. Projects! Art! Service! This session weaves in various elements into a dynamic and fun experience. The program includes hiking, orienteering, team building, art, and group projects.
Session 3: (two weeks): July 22-August 4: HIKING INTENSIVE. The Hiking Intensive Session requires a high level of prior athletic or hiking experience. By nature of the intensive hiking, this program is not for everyone. [Average on trail of 6-10 miles a day on mountainous terrain]. Applicants must be accepted into the program. Please contact
Fees include the full camp program, lodging and food. A non-refundable deposit of $200 per week is required to reserve your registration (the deposit counts toward your tuition, it's not a separate fee). All fee balances must be paid by Memorial Day (May 28, 2018).
As we are a small camp and a small community, we rely carefully on the budget that our tuition provides us. While deposits are always non-refundable, tuition fees paid are refundable in the event that we are able to fill your camper's spot. We will do our best in all cases to find new campers, but regrettably cannot guarantee that we will in all cases. Additionally, we will not offer a refund of any amount if your camper drops a spot within 7 calendar days of a session.
Pick-Up and Drop Off Times
Please arrive between 2 and 4 pm on the first day of camp. If you arrive earlier than 2pm, there are many things to see and do in Grass Valley and Nevada City, but camp will not be open for registration until 2:00. If you are delayed, please call us to let us know if you may arrive later than 4:00.
Please plan to pick up your child by 11am (you can come as early as 9am to join us for the morning) on the last day of camp.
A Bay-Area shuttle is provided at the beginning and end of every session, for the convenience of families traveling long distances.
- Register by Valentines Day to show your camp love and get a $50 discount per child.
- Returning Campers: bring a friend who hasn't been to camp before, and get $50 off both of your tuitions! Just let us know by emailing
after both of you have paid the deposit.
- Families registering more than one camper get $50 off per child.
Work trades are a fun way to make camp more affordable. In exchange for a week of helping with the work of camp, you will receive room and board and $350 toward one child's tuition at camp. The work is approximately 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Work trades are most essential in the kitchen, helping cook meals, but could potentially be or include maintenance or leading activities in an area of your expertise. While not working, enjoy reading, playing music, and walking to the river (a 3 mile hike from our campus). Please contact us at
if you are interested in doing a work-trade this summer. It is possible to bring children too young to attend camp with you, if you are doing a work-trade!
We do everything we can to make camp possible for all regardless of financial limitations. If your son or daughter wants to attend camp and you are unable to afford the full price of tuition, please contact us and we will work with you to make sure they can come. The deadline for financial aid requests is May 1. Requests made after this deadline will still be considered if funds are available.
