A great introduction into the
world of camping!

A classic summer camp that is anything but ordinary. While Primary and Junior program run simultaneously, they are two unique program with separate schedules and curriculum designed for each age group.

Junior

Entering 4–6th grades

Distinctives
  • Counselor-based experiences and teaching
  • Safe age-appropriate activities and adventures
  • Christ-centered program, Bible-based curriculum
  • Church group friendly
  • Mature staff

Redwood Camp allows small groups of campers to enjoy a variety of counselor-led activities. Nature hikes, arts and crafts, the treehouse, cabin challenges, and target sports like archery and BB guns are part of the adventure for all campers. Everyone gets wet too! A swimming pool with curvy slide and the beaches of Bean Creek, provide great time of refreshment. Age-appropriate high adventures such as the flying squirrel, zipline, and Geronimo swing are there to challenge and be conquered. A trip to the beach in Santa Cruz, walks to the Fountain and other options make each day unique. At Victory Circle, the group enjoys community singing and hilarious skits, meaningful dramas, campfires, s’mores and sharing times. Here amongst the redwoods God works to transform lives.

  • Camera (batteries, film or memory card)
  • Kleenex—small size
  • Laundry bag

Cellular phones, iPods/radio/CD player, electronic games, playing cards, comics, fireworks, hunting knife, bows, firearms, pagers, phone cards, animals, or sports equipment, unless cleared with the Director.  

Cash at Check-in

T-shirts are $10 and available at check-in (Visa, Mastercard & checks are accepted). T-shirts will be online for preorder in the spring of 2018.

Roommate Policy

Up to 3 friends can room together in the same cabin. Roommate requests will be available the second week of May 2018. The parent or guardian will receive an email at that time explaining how to complete the roommate request online.

Arrival

Camp check-in will run continuously from 3–4pm on Sunday afternoons. Cabin orientation begins immediately. If you know you will be arriving after 4pm, please call the camp Trading Post 831.430.1250 to assure that your place will be kept rather than released to the waiting list. 

Departure

All camps will conclude following our Victory Circle celebration which begins at 9:00am, concluding by 9:40am. Parents are invited to attend the final Victory Circle time (9am) for a glimpse of your child’s week at camp. It is essential that campers be picked up promptly by 9:40am.

Written mail for Campers

Written mail is encouraged as receiving letters from home is important to youngsters away at camp.  Letters should emphasize the interesting things the child is doing at camp, rather than too much reminder of home, illnesses of family or pets, being missed, etc. 

To ensure that letters are received on time, we find the best idea is to bring them to camp with you and give them to our host to deliver during the week. 

If you need to mail your items please remember to mail these items before the start of camp, or on the Monday or Tuesday of that week.  Late arriving mail will be returned to the sending address. 

ADDRESS MAIL: Camper's Name, Redwood Camp, Box 1000, Mount Hermon, CA 95041
 

SPECIAL NOTE ON PARCELS TO CAMPERS.  New in summer 2018, we are asking parents to limit the number of parcels to ONE (not to exceed a shoe box size) for the week your child(ren) are in camp.  This is due to several reasons:  the camp provides a balanced diet, including desserts, each day for the entire week.  In addition, there is a daily scheduled snack bar time for children to purchase a soft drink, candy and/or ice cream.  A third reason is the increase in the variety and range of allergies that children enter our camp community with, creating increased concern for unintended allergic reactions. 

Birthdays can still be honored with arrangements made through the parcel or with the RWC Administrative Lead.

Thank you for complying with this request, please contact Ron Taylor with any concerns/questions you may have in regard to parcels, either before camp or at check-in on Sunday.
