About Mountain Camp Woodside

Mountain Camp Woodside is a traditional sleep-away Resident Camp (for grades 2nd – 10th) and is nestled in the heart of beautiful Portola Valley, California on the 63-acre campus of the Woodside Priory School.

Mountain Camp Woodside’s minimal technology, non-competitive program is designed to build confidence and independence, encourage friendships and healthy lifestyle choices. We offer activities like mountain biking, arts & crafts, soccer, swimming, archery and outdoor survival. In today’s hectic, high-tech world, we believe a back-to-basics approach to outdoor recreation and plain ol’ fashion “fun” is critical to building a child’s positive self-image.

A quality summer camp experience will provide education, challenge, achievement and acceptance. Mountain Camp Woodside’s unique atmosphere allows children to learn in a fun and safe environment that encourages independence while nurturing lasting friendships. From campfire songs and skits to the first time away from home, the camp experience can have a profound impact on a child’s development.

Mountain Camp Woodside has been accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and is an active member of the Western Association of Independent Camps (WAIC).
