Kids’ Natural Excursions
Join the Natural World at Summer Camp

There are Cali Camp sports and then there are forays into the natural environment. A time for kids who are used to the stimuli of the city to slow down and experience the pace of the earth.

Horseback riding at equestrian "Wrangler" camp, time spent with barn animals like donkeys, goats and chickens, and visits to the bamboo forest have always been camper favorites. But don't forget about our natural favorites like outdoor living skills, gardening, composting, geocaching, animal husbandry, lashing skills, hiking and pioneer skills.

Escape to an Overgrown Land


Sometimes the simplest summer camp activities are the most satisfying. Cali Kids have long flocked to the canyon’s bamboo forest in the heat of the day.

There they escape in its wild overgrown stalks, play hide-and-seek or experience the material’s adaptability and their own creativity making tables and chairs from it.
