Ecojustice Camp is:

  • A Fun Community of Campers: Ecojustice Camp fosters important friendships through fun outdoor activities. By being part of a caring community, campers learn to care for Nature and other humans.
  • A Place To Learn Outdoor Skills: Campers build self-confidence through learning survival skills like outdoor cooking, campcraft, nature observation, etc. Camp activities encourage individual learning, without athletic or social competition.
  • A Time To Connect with the Natural World: Learning to cook your own meal over an open fire. Exploring the laws of Nature through observing living organisms. Learning how pollution in Adobe Creek impacts San Francisco Bay.

Ecojustice Camp is all these and more. We believe humans can have a positive impact on each other, and on the natural world. Ecojustice Camp is a time for campers to feel a part of the interdependent web of all life.

Life at camp

Campers do lots of hands-on activities including cooking, nature study, games, crafts, biology and ecology, and more. Many favorite activities from past years will have to be modified due to COVID restrictions. But we’ll still have old favorites like whittling (after campers learn safety rules and pass a safety test).

Junior counselors (competing gr. 9+) continue to hone their outdoor skills by teaching younger campers. They gain leadership skills while having fun in the outdoors. There is a mandatory safety training, as well as other training opportunities before camp begins.

All ages deepen their knowledge of ecosystems, and learn more how humans can have a positive impact on each other and the web of life.
