About

Owl Camp volunteers help in all aspects of our nature based summer day camp- from singing songs, to leading hikes, to playing in the creek, to crafting natural art projects, overnight programs, and more. Owl Camp serves kids ages 6-13 and volunteers can choose to work with all age groups or focus in on an age range that interests them. Volunteer schedules are very flexible throughout our 4 week long sessions. Volunteers are required to be fingerprinted and attend a one day training prior to camp.

Owl Camp is a nature-based day camp open to young people aged 6-13 (and 5-year olds who have gone through Kindergarten). Camp is located at Rancho Mark West in Northeast Santa Rosa, off St. Helena Road-- a 120-acre preserve with a pristine creek, pond, redwood forest and miles of trails all ready for exploring. Location is about 25 minutes from downtown Santa Rosa.

Owl Camp offers a rich place for children to explore the natural world, test out new ideas and experience the freedom of child-directed, open-ended learning through nature exploration and play guided in small groups by expert educators. Each summer as children work through how to build a fort, engage in a theatre production, or discover native plants and animals, they are exercising their brains in important ways-and building a memorable connection with the land in every step.

Activities include (but are in no means limited to): storytelling, tracking, creek exploration, swimming, music, keeping a nature journal, nature art, fort-building, nature games, hiking, canoeing, woodworking, cooking and organic gardening.

Owl Camp is proud to have a cadre of skilled and trained volunteers who help at camp throughout the day, so really the adult to camper ratio is generally one adult to five campers.
