Day One

Welcoming, get to know each other, and learn fun & challenging camping skills from our supportive leaders. After setting up camp, we will begin to explore the Santa Cruz Mountains and begin making countless memories with our new-found friends. Finally, our day will conclude around the crackling campfire with toasted-hot marshmallows.

Day Two
After our daily early morning meditations, exercise and basic martial arts training, we hike out to a nearby ropes course. Our day will conclude with an entertaining outdoor movie around the campfire followed by a group discussion about modern day manhood.

Day Three
Today we will continue to explore the Santa Cruz Mountains by hiking out to a nearby location in which we will immerse ourselves among the redwoods enjoying hours of outdoor laser tag. Before returning to camp, we will relax and plunge into the cool refreshing water at the pool.

Day Four
On our final day together, everyone will participate in our hip-hop paint party. Everyone will be guided by a professional artist in creating their own masterpiece, capturing the wonderful memories of their time together.  Finally, we will breakdown our tents, pack-up our gear, and begin heading back home, but not before stopping for delicious pizza before arriving back in Oakland.
