What is Owl Camp?

At Owl Camp, your child, aged 6 to 13, will spend their precious summer hours the old-fashioned way! Owl Campers return year after year to connect with the land, appreciate and care for nature, make new friends, sing songs, hike, play camp games, build forts, learn woodworking skills, swim, canoe, make nature crafts! At the heart of our camp is the opportunity for every camper to build memorable connections with the land, a foundation for a healthy community that deeply values caring for the land and each other.

A Typical Day at Owl Camp

In the morning, we hike the trails, play games, hike, and make nature crafts. After lunch, we explore the creek and the pond. Each week’s theme shapes what we explore and create, but the framework of each camp day stays consistent.

Staff

Our staff are CPR and First Aid-certified, skilled and trained outdoor educators bringing years of experience working with youth in outdoor settings. Staff to camper ratio is generally 1 staff to 12 campers. We also have a cadre of skilled and trained volunteers assisting throughout the day, making the adult to camper ratio closer to 1 adult to 5 campers. All Camp staff and volunteers have been fingerprinted for background checks.

Scholarships 

LandPaths is actively committed to making camp accessible for all youth, regardless of socioeconomic inequities. We offer scholarships to 40% of our participants, with the goal that the camp is a true reflection of all of us who live here in Sonoma County.

*Filling out a scholarship application does not guarantee a scholarship. PLEASE wait for LandPaths’ staff to contact you with a scholarship approval before you register.
