BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Camp St. Francis offers a five-day getaway for kids 8-13, teens looking to serve and develop leadership skills, and adults with a desire to share understanding, fun and encouragement with all of the above! Our summer session offers classic camp activities, chapel time and our Scarf program, encouraging personal development for all ages. Set in the Redwoods near Occidental, the kids learn to live and play together among these beautiful wonders of nature.

Basketball, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Dance, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: St. Dorothy’s Rest, an Episcopal camp and retreat facility, is nestled in the dense Redwoods of Camp Meeker, just outside of Occidental, California, in Sonoma County, about 90 minutes Northwest of San Francisco.

CAMP FACILITIES: This site offers indoor dormitory sleeping in bunks with mattresses provided. Campers are grouped together by age and supervised by their counseling staff. The beautiful setting also allows for swimming, access to the Russian River, outdoor basketball court, a play area, a cozy main house lodge, a recreation and gaming room, an outdoor campfire circle, cozy places to sit and share, a crafts shack, and a wonderful Redwood chapel.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Saint Francis is a week filled with programs that allow campers to explore and experience outdoor activities and create for themselves a closer connection to God and their communities.

Established in 2001, CSF moved to its new host site in 2014. This Camp Meeker location affords opportunities for activities like crafts, campfire, archery, games, sports, dance, water fun and nature hikes.

We build on themes of understanding and compassion in all of our programs, particularly in chapel, our scarf program, group games and discussions and our creative lessons and themes throughout the week.

Most of our staff are volunteers and attended camp as campers, and they are dedicated to providing a highly spirited, fun, and welcoming environment. We all strive to be good role models of the Christian way of life. We hope that our positive example and loving Christian environment promotes campers to grow spiritually.

The Scarf program, adopted from the YMCA’s ragger program, teaches campers important life skills, by taking on personal challenges and working towards overcoming them successfully. Ultimately, this helps develop lifelong tools a camper needs for personal growth. * Staff members are screened and trained in program, policies, and safety awareness. Our program is sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of California and is welcoming and inclusive.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Youth ages 14-15 are welcome to apply as Program Aides, we also accept volunteers for Counselors (and CITs) and Program leaders. Training for the staff will be held in the Bay Area in July 2017.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camperships are available on a first come, first serve basis, usually offering a discount of about 1/3.
