Overnight camp can be a life changing and sometimes difficult experience for students. Our overnight camp is conveniently located on 90 acres in El Sobrante California at Wildcat Canyon Community School. If you're from the Bay Area, it's a close enough drive to feel safe with your students being away from home. Accessible by Marin, Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek or wherever you are. You Sign In/Drop Off students on Monday Morning at 8:30am and Pick Up/Sign out on Friday at 3:30pm. Pack them a sack lunch for their first day. Students have the option of sleeping beneath the stars or in one of our awesome Bell Tents (pictured below). Overnight camp encourages self growth and "village mentality". I am because we are. Many hands make light work. We cook together, we clean together, we learn together, we laugh together. At night we sing songs, tell jokes, and have serious discussions about the issues facing young adults and how to move forward in healthy ways... all around a beautiful campfire and night sky.

We ask that all overnight students provide either a proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test with results within 72 hours prior to the start of the camp week.
