Camp Loma

Corallitos, CA

Host: Jared Finkelstein


We are delighted to be offering Family HEART Camp for a third consecutive year in this beautiful setting in the Santa Cruz Mountains near Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Camp Loma features a full kitchen, dining hall, outdoor pool, hot showers and flush toilets. 




Camp LomaCamp Loma is a 4H Club camp located amidst the beautiful redwoods near the summit of the Santa Cruz mountains. It has an Olympic size swimming pool, as well as facilities for volleyball, horseshoes, tetherball, archery and an amphitheater campfire area. There are flush toilets and a commercial kitchen, but the only lodging option is tent camping. The weather is usually perfect this time of year, sunny skies but not too hot. It is a great place to feel close to nature within a community of families.

You can learn more about Camp Loma by visiting the website listed in the California Resources menu.

The Perlman Retreat Center is situated in a tranquil forest on 350 acres. This serene retreat is surrounded by another 600 acres of woodlands and open prairies, including a living bog and Kettle Moraines. You would never guess you are only 30 minutes from Milwaukee and just 2 hours from Chicago!

Families will lodge in their own spacious dormitory-style room, each with its own attached bath. Food will be provided by Perlman Center's own chef, who will serve us delicious, nourishing meals in the private dining room.

Though Perlman Retreat Center is home to Nature's Classroom Institute, the renowned environmental education program, we will have this peaceful oasis to ourselves for the week. There are indoor and outdoor program spaces, several fire rings and abundant outdoor recreation opportunities. Enjoy hiking on the retreat center's trails, hanging out at the pool or challenge yourself with the climbing walls or ropes course.

You can learn more about the Perlman Retreat Center by visiting the website listed in the Wisconsin Resources menu.
