Facility Rental Information & Policies

What to Bring

Items that visitors might like to bring include good hiking shoes, insect repellent, rain wear in the rainy months, swim wear and a beach towel in the hot months if you plan a trip to the Yuba River, and a flashlight (there are no lights around campus at night). 

Quiet Time

In order to maintain a tranquil and restful atmosphere for all persons using our facility we have quiet hours from 10:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m.  During these times, we request that noise be limited to quiet levels indoors.  

Speed Limit

We value the simplicity and tranquility of this place and want to ensure safety and clean dust-free air for the residents, visitors and neighbors of Sierra Friends Center.  We expect strict observance of the 10 mph speed limit on Woolman Lane and on the school property.  

Health & Safety Policies

  • We are located in a fire prone area, so fire safety is critical.  Candles and incense are not permitted. Outdoor campfires and woodstove fires during the fire season require a CDF permit. We ask that all cooking be done in the shared dining hall and not in the cabin areas.
  • Pets are allowed at Sierra Friends Center with advance notice from the renter and must be leashed while onsite.  There are some periods during the year where pets may not be allowed. The only exception is for working companions of the disabled.
  • Tobacco and alcoholic beverages are not permitted at Sierra Friends Center.
  • Parents are expected to provide responsible supervision of children at all times, including times when primary childcare providers are having meals and taking breaks.
