Rancho Mark West
Important Info: As many of you know, our beloved Rancho Mark West was burned in the Glass Fire this last fall. We are hoping to host four weeks of camp at this ever resilient and lovely landscape… but our planning is being hampered as we wait for salvage logging on some of the burnt forest sections to be scheduled. We will not be able to host camp while the logging is in process and thus will be waiting to open registrations for those weeks until we know for certain Owl Camp can occur.

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 arts and crafts, act in plays, and learn to cook organic food straight from the garden! The results are happy, aware, curious kids who feel like they belong in nature and can’t wait to get back outside.
A Typical Day at Owl Camp
In the morning, we hike the trails, play games, explore and harvest from the garden, cook, make crafts, and canoe. After lunch, we explore the creek and the surrounding forest. Each week’s theme shapes what we explore and create, but the framework of each camp day stays consistent.
Staff Safety Training
Our staff of CPR and first aid-certified, college-educated, skilled, and trained field specialists have years of experience working with youth in outdoor settings. Staff to camper ratio is generally one staff to 10 campers. Skilled and trained volunteers assist throughout the day, making the adult to camper ratio closer to 1 adult to 5 campers. All staff and volunteers have been fingerprinted.
