Redwood Adventure Camp


63000 Hermitage Rd
Leggett, CA 95585

Adventure Awaits You!

The name Redwood Adventure Camp is a perfect fit for us; the redwood is a part of Camp in many ways. The Camp logo has an image of the redwood on it and the Ranger Award, an emblem of growth at Camp, is in the shape of a redwood tree. The redwood is also a beautiful symbol of nature, strength, California, and longevity and a perfect setting for all the adventures of Camp!


Providing opportunities for leadership development, spiritual and personal growth, environmental stewardship, lifelong friendships, fun and excitement that help individuals navigate life’s challenges and serve the broader community.

Campers in the Challenge program will be able to participate in the same activities as the Core programs. The Challenge program also draws from some aspects of the Advanced program. This provides campers an opportunity to stretch their physical limits with a slightly longer backpacking trip as well as calling upon them to take part in low key leadership roles and cooperative group projects.

Advanced Program


9th – 11th Grades
Boys: June 29, 2022 – July 6, 2022
Girls: July 20, 2022 – July 27, 2022
This program is designed for the camper who is ready for a program that goes beyond the central camp experience. It includes a three-day backpack trip, intermediate outdoor living skills and introductory training in survival skills. Advanced campers are routinely involved in the planning and arranging of meals, trip execution and morning prayer. This program is designed to be excellent preparation for our two-week Adventure/Survival program. Applicants need to be in good health for the physically strenuous activities involved. Acceptance will be determined by evaluation of the camper’s previously demonstrated ability to hike well and work harmoniously with others, as well as available space.

Adventure/Survival Program


10th & 11th Grades
Boys: July 13, 2022- July 27, 2022
Girls: July 4, 2022 – July 18, 2022
The Adventure/Survival program is a two-week program designed to be the culmination in both outdoor challenges as well as teamwork, leadership skills and spiritual development. This program includes advanced camp crafts, outdoor living skills as well as training in survival skills. Training will peak with the campers participating in a 24-hour solo that will allow them to demonstrate these new skills. The campers will also take part in a four-day backpacking trip, an orienteering trip to the ocean, and a high elements ropes course .

The spiritual program is just as challenging as the physical program. The advanced nature of Adventure/Survival activities requires intense teamwork and dependability with each individual. Special emphasis on self-awareness, spiritual growth and development of close friendships are all integral aspects of the experience. Adventure/Survival campers are responsible for planning and executing morning prayer.

Applicants need to be in good health for the physically strenuous activities involved. Acceptance will be determined by evaluation of the camper’s previously demonstrated ability to hike well and work harmoniously with others.

Graduate Program


11th & 12th Grades
2022 Dates: July 6, 2022 – July 13, 2022
The Graduate program is the final stage of the camper experience. This co-ed program lasts one week, and is held in the Lost Cost, King Range. Graduate is based on a challenging hiking route that will start in the beautiful coastal mountains and end on the shores of Black Sands Beach. Built into this beautiful hike are exercises to help you explore the possibility of future leadership roles as well as develop and mature your spiritual understanding of yourself and your world.

The groups camp in separate sites but come together in the evenings for campfire revelry as well as spiritual discussion and challenges. This structure allows and encourages healthy social and spiritual interactions between the two groups. Although we consider this program complementary to our CIT program and staffing, you do not have to be a CIT to participate in Graduate, nor do you have to complete Graduate to become a staff member.

B: July 11, 2022 – July 18, 2022
C: July 20, 2022 – July 27, 2022
This exciting program is offered to any individual who is 17 and wishes to explore the possibility of becoming a counselor. This program will allow campers to take an in-depth look at the internal, external and spiritual journey from camper to counselor and will provide a safe environment for this transition by supporting quality decision making through guided personal choices.

The Voyage program will help campers learn to recognize and execute different types of leadership styles as well as creative problem solving skills. Voyage campers will have the opportunity to observe, plan and accomplish various leadership roles at Redwood Adventure Camp while being supported by active mentoring relationships. Campers in the Voyage program will leave with a sense of accomplishment and productivity and will be armed with the knowledge needed to become a counselor.

Although this program is recommended as preparation for becoming a counselor, it is not a requirement in the application for employment when the camper is 18.
