Camp Tule

Thank you to each of our campers, staff, and volunteers for another incredible year at Camp Tule! We hope to see you again next year for another exciting summer along the Laguna de Santa Rosa!

Camp Tule is a nature-based cay camp where children are given space to nurture their creativity and spend time exploring and playing in nature. Each new day is filled with exciting discoveries like “catching” animal footprints in track boxes that the children make, spotting barn owls, egret, deer, jackrabbit, kingfisher, and red-tailed hawk, and playing lots of nature games that teach ecological concepts. Our nature-themed art projects are always a special highlight each week. And, what would an adventure day be without climbing trees? We do that, too!

At Camp Tule, we aim to foster wonder and delight in the world we live in.

Children attending Camp Tule learn about the native plants and animals of the Laguna de Santa Rosa ecosystem in a supportive, playful, and encouraging environment.

Camp Tule Staff

We hire enthusiastic youth and young adults to serve as Naturalist field instructors and Camp Counselors. Our staff include Spanish speaking adults and teens, ensuring a welcoming environment for all campers. Camp Tule also recruits youth who want to gain leadership experience by volunteering at camp as Counselors-in-Training. Naturalists, Counselors, and Counselors-in-Training round out our education department staff, including Education Director, Christine Fontaine, and Environmental Educator, Carlos Barragan, along with some of our skilled, knowledgeable, and dedicated Learning Laguna docents.

Thank you to our Camp Tule Sponsors: The Fledgling Fund, Kimball Foundation and the Gordon Dow LEAP Fund.
