Black Oak Wilderness Camps
Relationship with nature grows stronger when it's fostered and encouraged from a younger age. Young explorers will spend their days with instructors who will encourage free exploration as well as guide students through developing that relationship. Kids will hike, garden, learn about plants, make crafts, play nature games, get dirty, have fun, and learn a lot. They will learn especially about reciprocity with nature, planting the initial seeds that will grow into a more ecologically aware generation.
They will share our 90 acre property with groups of different ages and activities to get them excited to learn more. They can watch archery, blacksmithing, survival skills, and advanced crafting. Sign In/Drop Off occurs each day.
Day Camps K - 11
Overnight Camps 6 - 12
Into the Heart of Nature
June 20 – August 12
Into the Heart of Nature Summer Camp is located in an extraordinary setting nestled in the Nisene Marks Forest. Summer at Tara is not only fun but healthy, peaceful and inspiring.
We offer a values-based program for ages 4 - 8 with low camper group ratios. At summer camp your child will make new friends, learn a new skill, develop mindfulness, help others and absorb some of our core tenets for happiness.
Living on this planet and in this unique place, we learn how each of us can / do have an impact and influence on our world and how we can make a positive difference.

Kennolyn Day Camp
Ready to get your child away from technology and into a nourishing community of fun, friends, and the great outdoors? Give your child a healthy dose of GRATITUDE, POSITIVE ATTITUDE, and GROWTH at Kennolyn Day Camp!
On 450 acres of privately owned redwood forest only 4 miles from town, and 1 mile from our Overnight Camp, Kennolyn Day Camp is just a short bus ride away. Your child will thrive in this fun, active, supportive environment, and you will get a break (or at least be able to work without interruption). And after a day of exploring the fields, pond, and miles of trails, they’ll be happy-tired after each fun day!
Amazing activities keep your camp busy all day: high ropes course, climbing wall, BMX, fencing, pool time, horseback riding, animal care, archery, crafts, and more!
Campers grades K-9 are placed in coed groups based on their grade with two well-trained adult counselors.
Campers entering 10-11th grade may apply for our Leadership Development program.
Groups follow a planned schedule with some choice built in from Monday through Thursday. On Friday Fun Day, campers grades 2+ choose their own activities during the morning. The afternoon wraps up the week with a fun event based on a different theme each week. This is a great change of pace for campers who spend multiple weeks at Kennolyn.
Nowhere else in the local region will you find a more complete, authentic summer day camp experience. Just ask your friends and neighbors.
