Back to Camp: Lifelong Learning in the Redwoods

August 1-5, 2022: Explore, learn, and adventure!

Nestle into the redwoods at the beautiful Wolf Creek Education Center, where you will choose daily activities for a personalized education and camping experience designed for OLLI members. 

The center is located adjacent to Redwood National Park land, near the southern end of Prairie Creek State Park, and features modern amenities with hot showers, restrooms, and a large kitchen. Campers can sleep in shared cabins with padded bunks, or can set up their own tent.

Enjoy discovering the many facets of the vast North Coast. Between classes there will be time for exploring nearby trails along the beach and into the redwoods. Activities may include walking in Fern Canyon, visiting waterfalls, viewing rock formations, and possible Roosevelt Elk sightings. 

OLLI members can go “back to camp” for the full week or choose a day to spend in the redwoods.

Happy Campers stay overnight to enjoy the full range of activities and camping experience, with twilight tales and stargazing, and an early bird program created for their adventurous spirit. All lunches, snacks, dinners, camping fees, educational programs, transportation to and from the Wolf Creek Educational Center (via van or bus) are provided.

Day Trippers choose which days they would like to experience the adventure and then return home (or to a nearby hotel). Transportation to and from the Wolf Creek Education Center is provided via van or bus. Options for personal transportation may be made by arrangement. Day Tripper registration opens on July 12 at the OLLI Open House.

OLLI has partnered with local guides, leaders, and community groups to create this unique outdoor education experience in the pristine redwood forest on the North Coast of California.

All campers are encouraged to stay for the catered dinner and twilight talks!
