ABOUT THE WOODSWestminster Woods is located on 200 acres of redwood forest in the coastal hills of Sonoma County, CA. During summer, we provide residential overnight programs in spiritual, environmental, and social-emotional education for people of all ages. Facilitated by our experienced staff (many of who are alumni campers), camp participants will explore, play, reflect, and grow through a variety of hands on experiences including our one-of-a-kind Challenge Course. Whether you're "shipwrecked" in Driftwood, spending time with your family at The Grove, or stepping into your purpose at High School Camp, campers are welcomed into a sanctuary for transformative experience and all around camp fun!

SHERWOOD FORESTWeek 2: (June 25th - June 30th) Week 4: (July 9th - July 14th)
Sherwood is a ministry designed around the adventures of Robin Hood. Campers will have the opportunity to engage the way God heals community and discover their own purpose within that adventure. Through experiential "hands on" learning, fellowship, and the encouraged use of imagination, Sherwood campers will discover that they have a place in the story, and it is a tale they will not want to miss!
DRIFTWOODWeek 6: (July 23rd - July 28th)
In this "shipwrecked" themed camp, campers explore how to adapt physically, emotionally, and spiritually when presented with team challenges that represent what it's like to be stranded on a deserted island. Campers build self esteem and gain confidence through learning primitive skills while creating community with those different from themselves.
JUNIOR HIGH CAMPWeek 2: (June 25th - June 30th)
Junior High Camp is an exciting chance to get out of the house and come to the forest for a week filled to the brim with activities! What better way to spend a week of summer than meeting new friends, taking a "stroll" through the Redwood canopy on the Westminster Woods Challenge Course, playing wild games, and growing deeper in what faith means to us.
HIGH SCHOOL CAMPWeek 4: (July 9th - July 14th) Week 6: (July 23rd - July 28th)
Through transformational ministry, High School Camp engages our relationships with the self, others, nature, and God. Whether sitting in a sun-drenched meadow or within the cool shade of the Redwoods canopy high up on the Challenge Course, a camper coming to High School Camp can develop eyes that see and ears that hear to reconnect with their self identity and the community around them!
