Walker Creek Ranch is in the rolling hills of West Marin County, between Petaluma and Tomales Bay, about one hour's drive north of San Francisco, California. It's quiet and beautiful, with an abundance of wildlife and miles of hiking trails, a swimming pond, healthy and delicious food, and various accommodation options (ranging from private rooms to RV and tent camping to day-commuter).


The price (meals included) for a full time camper (includes morning classes) ranges from $475 to $775, depending on meals and lodging choices. If you're on a tight budget, there are ways to reduce the cost, such as commuting, coming as a half-time camper (on a space available basis), or applying for a scholarship or work trade. Prices are less for kids age ten and under, call for details. Late fees are added to all prices after March1st, and the late fees increase after April 1st. More info on the FAQs page.

Can't get your bass to camp, or need a loaner? Just ask. (Thanks to our bass angel, Steve Swan!)
