Another great staff - hope you can join us!!


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 nearby vacation rentals or day-commuter).


The price (meals included) for a full time camper (includes morning classes) ranges from $475 to $850, depending on meals and lodging choices. If you're on a tight budget, there are ways to reduce the cost, such as commuting/bringing your own meals (this is only an option if you commute), 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. Early  bird prices good till September 15th, late fees are added after that, and the late fees increase after October 15th. To avoid late fees, sign up early; if you're not yet sure of your plans, read our very user-friendly cancellation policy on the FAQs page, where you'll find additional information as well. Late fees can be waived for first-time campers who hear about camp after the late fee dates.

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