Camp Noah will be held in Ukiah, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., (with breakfast at 8:30 a.m.), Monday, August 6 – Friday, August 10, 2018 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 640 South Orchard, in Ukiah.

Advance Registration is required, in order to prepare well for the needs of the children attending the camp.

Links for registering your child and for applying to volunteer are below.

Please plan on your child attending all five days of the camp.

There will be an evening presentation for parents to learn what’s been happening at camp, as well.

Camp Noah is free, and is for children from the areas affected by the Redwood Complex fires who graduated Kindergarten through 5th grade in the Spring of 2018, with highest priority being those children most affected.

The camp makes use of a well-renowned and high-quality curriculum designed to be universally accessible for children from all kinds of backgrounds.  The Camp Noah curriculum promotes resiliency skills and builds a sense of preparedness.  Although it does not present a religious perspective and does not include any kind of proselytizing, the camp makes use of the story of Noah as a means to help children learn resiliency and develop a sense of preparedness for disaster.  And, also importantly, it’s fun!

The camp includes two meals daily and snacks.  The registration process includes opportunities to describe individual children’s needs, including transportation needs.
