Camp Tule
Registration is Closed
Our sessions are full, but we encourage you to join the waitlist!

Do you know special young explorers who need to get outside and engage their senses in nature? If you answered yes, send them to Camp Tule! We are excited to welcome back explorers to Camp Tule in-person, out in nature! Each camp day will be filled with creativity, stories, a little science, and lots of fun nature games all designed to connect children to the natural world. Our groups will be small and our pace will allow for exploration, observation, discovery, and learning about the plants and animals of the Laguna de Santa Rosa wetlands. Our time together will be spent entirely outside at Irwin Creek or the Laguna with the Laguna Environmental Center as our home base. In order to provide a safe and fun experience for all, we will adhere to all COVID-19 safety guidelines. We look forward to adventuring with your child this summer!


We are offering three, 4-day sessions comprised of 15 children each, for mixed age groups ranging from 6-11 years old. Each camp day starts at 9:00am and ends at 1:30pm.
The framework and activities will generally be the same each week.

Session 1:
Tuesday – Friday
July 13 – 16

Session 2:
Tuesday – Friday
July 20 – 23

Session 3:
Monday –Thursday
July 26 – 29

Tuition is $250.00. Limited scholarships are available.

Note: We would like for as many children as possible to experience the wonder of Camp Tule. With our limited capacity this year, we ask that you register for only one session.

Scholarships
To apply for a scholarship, purchase the scholarship “ticket” for $50.00 and register your child for Camp. We will send you the scholarship application to complete and return.

By purchasing a scholarship ticket of $50, your child has a place in Camp. However, it does not guarantee a tuition scholarship. Based on your responses on the scholarship application, you will either be given a scholarship for all or part of the remaining tuition balance ($200), or the option to pay for Camp in installments. If the terms of the scholarship or payment plan are not acceptable to your family, you will have the option to receive a refund of the scholarship ticket and forfeit the child’s place in Camp.

Wanted: Camp Tule Counselors!
We are looking for enthusiastic, dependable, patient and responsible counselors to work at Camp Tule to serve as positive role models for the campers and to help lead the fun explorations, games, crafts and learning adventures. Counselors get to learn more about themselves, feel a sense of belonging, gain new skills and foster their own leadership abilities while earning money, having fun, getting exercise and connecting to the outdoors. We provide training and opportunities to practice teaching in a caring and safe environment before the campers arrive. Plus, the Laguna Foundation is offering three days of paid environmental stewardship learning and work experience after camp ends.

If you know a high school or college student who loves working with children and being out in nature, please share the Camp Tule Counselor Job Announcement and Application Form. The application period is open now and closes on Sun., June 6. Camp staff training starts on Wed., July 7.


After a year of online school, now more than ever our children need to be together outdoors
and have their curiosity stimulated. Support the children of our community and the families facing
financial hardship by contributing to the Camp Tule Fund. Your gift today will help a child have
an unforgettable summer experience.
