Welcome to Camp Earnest, a former summer camp in the mountains of northern California, just over an hour from Yosemite National Park. We invite you to visit with us, to relax your mind, open your heart, move your body, fill your belly and enjoy nature.
Camp Earnest is a gathering and event space near the towns of Twain Harte and Sonora, just two and a half hours (140 miles) east of San Francisco. We're at 3,500 feet of elevation in a ponderosa pine, cedar and manzanita forest with light snow in the winter and mild summers.
Our 21 acres include a rental house, several cabins, two three season bell tents, dining lodge, bathhouse (Finnish sauna and cedar hot tub coming!), a small outdoor amphitheater and a meditation and movement hall. Enjoy our fire pits and circles, or follow Stair Trail down to the spring fed Turnback Creek, with lovely walking paths and a rock labyrinth.
Camp Earnest provides a relaxing place to stay and, during our events, chef prepared farm to table feasts made in the GP Lodge kitchen. We bring Good People together, produce and host facilitated programs and workshops that ground us in our shared humanity and hopes for an inspiring future.
We can lodge up to 15 guests at present and host events for up to 50 guests, with additional lodging through our friends and partners nearby.
